TWiP: Lit.

I’m afraid I didn’t get too creative this week. I have a million excuses, most of them are even valid, but really, it probably just comes down to the fact that I like Christmas light bokeh. And when it’s dark, and I’ve had a day that looks pretty much like all of the other days before it, and nothing stands out as being The Thing of the Day That Should be Photographed, it’s sooooo easy to fall back on the pretty lights!

I refuse to apologize 😁

Maybe next week, I’ll take some pictures with more variety. And maybe I won’t… I have 10 days off! It’s the longest break I’ve had since I started my job, and so I plan to spend as much of it as possible doing only the things that I feel like doing at the time.

Since the chances of me coming back here to post again before the holiday are roughly zero, I’ll say it now: Merry Christmas! XO

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the occasional when-I-feel-like-it theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…



365 📷: 2017 350/365 – Itty bitty pinecones and a little bit of snow still hanging on to the branches after yesterday’s snowfall.



365 📷: 2017 351/365 – The tree is up and lit. No ornaments on it yet. Maybe tonight or tomorrow.



365 📷: 2017 352/365 – I had an idea for a new raglan pullover.



365 📷: 2017 353/365 – I guess it’s time to go through all of these packages and start wrapping something…



365 📷: 2017 354/365 – We’ve got even more lights on the tree now. Still haven’t hung the ornaments, come to think of it…



365 📷: 2017 355/365 – At this time of year, it’s a pretty good bet that if I can’t think of anything to photograph, I will do something that involves a string of lights.



365 📷: 2017 356/365 – Christmas cards on a wire. We gave up sending cards ourselves so long ago, it’s a wonder we still receive any. I appreciate those persistant friends and family who send us cards despite our lack of reciprocation 😉

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Flickr and/or Instagram.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
