Sweet Treats | {1500 Miles, 1 Image}

I don’t know about you, but we have wayyyyy too many sweet treats around our house this time of year! I don’t even bake Christmas cookies really (well, we do bake one batch for Santa on Christmas Eve) and yet somehow we have a lot of cookies in the house. Yesterday was my daughter’s last day of school before Winter Break and she came home with a whole box of sugar cookies. So, I decided to take a photo of them. One of my photography goals for 2018 is to improve my macro photography. No time like the present to start on that journey!

Take a look at Melisa’s goodies here.

I’m wishing all of you a peaceful and joyful holiday!

Merry Christmas!

More fun with Christmas lights this week!

I wanted to try a double exposure this week with some lights. The problem (or beauty, depending on your perspective) with double exposures is they are unpredictable. This one didn’t turn out exactly as I envisioned it, but it was the best of the bunch. And with homework looming and my subject’s patience for my photography experimentation marginal at best, it was best to move on.

This is our little Christmas tree. It’s artificial, but we were just talking the other day that maybe we will try a real tree again next year. This tree has been moved several times and is starting to show its age. I love all the vintage ornaments we have on it from our childhoods. Every year when we unpack the Christmas decorations, they bring back memories.

You may see Melisa’s beautiful tree here!

‘Tis the season for bokeh!

I  love capturing holiday lights in their many forms. San Antonio is big on decorating for the holidays; there are plenty of lights around the city this time of year. I love seeing them on the twisty oak trunks. It’s so beautiful at night, and makes an ordinary scene magical.  I hope you are all enjoying the lights this time of year!
