My wife has the Christmas wrapping paper and ribbons out, and is busily wrapping the Christmas gifts. I on the other hand will probably wait until Christmas eve before I get to the wrapping.
While looking around for things to photograph, the box of ribbons caught my eye. I like the loops, the bright colors, and the reflections off of the shiny surfaces. I do enjoy Christmas, and having some time off from work to spend with the family. It should be a great time.
- Tomorrow is my first "Opening at a Local Gallery". When I started this project, it was just photography. As my skills increased, I could get a better photo in a shorter time. Now I'm learning new skills with printing, matting, framing... There's a lot to all of this. The lesson learned is that I don't always have as much time to concentrate on the taking of the photos, but I'm still very involved with photography. I have to be sure to keep the right balance.
- It was very cold today. I did notice some cool frozen water falls, and trees. I didn't stop and take photographs. Part of it was the time commitment, the other part was I didn't want to stand outside in the cold to take the photographs. I must overcome that second part. I think there's some great opportunities in the cold of winter.
