12/09/08 Our Christmas tree reflecting on the keys of my piano. I am still learning about using light without flash. This one is blurry, but I still liked the image.

    This is what capturing an image is all about. You would think that all eyes are on the christmas tree in the background but the surrounding reflective beauty is what makes capturing an image so rewarding.

    This is exactly how my Christmases feel! I can hear Vince Guaraldi's Charlie Brown's Christmas playing! Fantastic POV, such a cool perspective! I love all the vertical & horizontal lines, and the dots of color are mesmerizing.
