Merry Christmas, a couple days late! I hope everyone had cozy, good times with family and friends. I ate so many Christmas cookies I think I might actually be made of sugar and spice and everything nice now. Pretty sure I'm leaving a trail of sugar and glitter wherever I go. :)
I got a new lens for my camera as a Christmas present to myself (thanks, me!), and I snapped a few pics of decorations and things to practice on Christmas Day. I definitely had some focusing problems on some of the pics. I really hope it's just a matter of me needing more practice and not an issue with the lens, or the lens communicating with my camera. If the weather cooperates, we're going to go out shooting over the next week so I can practice a bit more in different light/settings/etc. Anyway, here are a few of my practice shots that I thought turned out ok.
We got our tree and decorations up late this year, so I'm definitely in no hurry to take them down. Not that I am ever in a hurry for Christmas to end. I wish it lasted longer. The tree smells so fantastic, much better than any I can remember in fact. I wish I could bottle it up!
I hope everyone is enjoying some time off to relax, recharge, and wipe the slate clean for a new year. xo, Mary
