It's almost here...are you ready? On this fourth Sunday of Advent...the first day of winter...the shortest day of the year...I'm lighting candles and preparing my heart for the week.
Part of my family has been down this weekend with whatever nasty bug is going around. It's not fun to be sick, but sometimes slowing down is just what we need. Forced to stay home, I was able to catch up on housework and other miscellaneous things. I had time to be productive, time to create and time to relax.
I'm ready for Christmas. I'm ready to truly enjoy the next few days and weeks. This is GOOD.
Sometimes when I'm out running my creative juices start flowing and I get ideas of what to photograph and how. On my run yesterday I had the idea to make a Christ"moss" tree....a bit RANDOM, but FUN.
I also played around a bit with my violin (one of my favorite subjects to photograph) and bokeh. I got some great black and white shots as well, but you'll have to wait a couple days for those.
