Christmas Past

Christmas 2015 is already a part of the past, but, as we head toward 2016, I am hesitant to let go of the spirit (and decorations!) of Christmas. I suspect our tree will stay up until New Year’s.  We had a wonderful, though quiet, Christmas with our son, Matt. Lots of food and movie-watching!


The moon photo was taken Christmas Eve through our front window. Although I saw the historic full moon on Christmas, it was already high in the sky- and I didn’t attempt another photograph.  Anyway, I was distracted by a fabulous Christmas gift I received from my husband- the Lensbaby Velvet 56 lens(!) and by some fun and very useful photography accessories from my kids (mini reflectors and a plant clamp for flower photography- and a thermarest seat for sitting down on hikes to take said photos!).  The snowflake ornament photo at the top of the collage above was taken with the new lens, which does great macro as well as portrait photography.

Hope you all are enjoying the holiday season!

  1. Yea on the Lensbaby, be interested to see how you like it. I am afraid I don’t use it much. I have the best seat also for sitting down to take some photos, it folds up like an umbrella and is just so cool. I took it to Portland when I went to the Tulip Festival and enjoyed it so much to use. I just can’t bend anymore from the waist as it is a killer on my back so the seat really came in handy. Happy to see your son here, I don’t think I have seen him before. Lonnie looks great and so do you. Have a Happy New Year.
