Light Bright

Friday night we went to an area restaurant that's known for its dazzling Christmas light display. It's tradition for visitors to stuff themselves full of pork chop and pie and then wander around looking at the beautiful lights. Teen Angel and me walked through the lights and we were all ooh and aah and look at this. And while I took plenty of beauty shots of garland and twinkling lights, I decided it was much more fun to play with angles, aperature, focus and shutter speed to get all kinds of wacky pictures of color. When I was a kid I didn't use those paper patterns that came with the Light Bright either. I just poked those pegs into random designs. Is that what they mean by coloring outside the lines?

Love the details and the abstracts.

When I took a photography class in college, my favorite photo to take were the ones at night with cars driving by--and keeping the lense open for long periods of time!

Oh...and to answer your question, yes! I made that card on my blog. I cheated though...it was from a kit. I'm all about simple.

So pretty and festive! I went to a Christmas Magic light show last evening, and wouldn't you know it, I forgot my camera! Ugh.
