Last year it was frigid as I tried to take pictures of Christmas lights. This year, it was very, very wet, with rain still pouring down. Obviously, I was not deterred!
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
I was at a friend’s house, attending an event in their backyard, and they had these lights hanging everywhere. When the sun started to go down, I decided to try and shoot them. I love the contrast and the extraordinary look of such an ordinary thing.
Then, there was the sun against these paper orbs that I couldn’t resist.
I also shot some other random objects.
This one, though, just seemed to stick out, just in how simple it is. It reminded me of when I have ideas that I let sit and the cobwebs spring up around it, yet, the idea still glows.
My best photos come from just taking the camera with me everywhere and just seeing what’s around that others see as ordinary, and turning them into something extraordinary, even if it is just for me.
