i'm that girl.
the one that usually has the tree down by Christmas evening.
it pains me to admit this to you
but as much as i love our home decorated for Christmas
(& i start working on decorating our home mid november)
i love it all cleaned up just as much.
i'm not bah humbug.
however this year i love love love love the tree
& how its glow reflects on the hardwoods.
really it is.
& i doubt seriously i'll take him down saturday afternoon.
but definitely not saturday afternoon
in an effort to capture some of the nighttime glory
( i am now a converted never user of the flash . i am that girl too)
i switched my white balance to tungsten
& jacked up my iso to 1600.
clearly i still have much to learn to perfect shooting in basically the dark
forgive the blur
as i shoot on aperture priority , still haven't mastered shutter speed.
( coming january 2011)
however i thought they turned out fun
(rounded the corner & found little bit playing with the nativity. precious)
so i told caroline that i wanted to capture brinkley sitting in front of the tree.
no offense of course.
however being the lover that he is, if you move, he will follow.
so we had to be sneaky.
back up slowly caroline
i don't think he's on to our plan
keep backing up
just a little more
good boy brinkley
i'm definitely not taking it down saturday
merry merry merry Christmas to you
