T'is the Season

I drove the long way home after an appointment last week.  Since Thanksgiving was so late this year folks, including us, seem to have jumped right into Christmas.  I figured I’d see a few light displays.  It was foggy, even drizzling a bit, and yet, for me the stars were aligned.  Number one I had the camera.  Number two, there was no wind.  I arrived at the harbor to low tide but a still reflection.  A half a mile away, Meeting Pond mirrored the lights on the town common. Last year my husband gave me a mini-tripod I keep in my car and I set it up on the cement.  It’s a good thing it was dark, because I looked like a contortionist, squatting down to [squirrel] level, squinting at the viewfinder.  

I read something recently.  Celebrating each day leading up to the holiday puts less pressure on the day itself.  Oh yeah.  Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a season. . 

I’m in for that.

Wow, those are great photos!
Celebrating a little each day is what it's all about.

It's definitely a season. Love the reflections.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Oh, wow! Love those shots!

I love that idea. Celebrating each day simply because it is part of the season.

Your pics are stunning!!!

I finally did some decorating today. I'm have some trouble getting into the spirit of it. Perhaps because my shopping list is so short. I need to buy more gifts.

Gorgeous! I love how the reflections mirror the season's excitement. I try to drag the season out with a special Christmas Eve Eve Eve meal, then a nice wine with snacks in the living room prior to the meal on Christmas Eve Eve, then Wheee on Christmas Eve as that's when we open our gifts.

Wow, your contortionist moves were totally worth the effort, because your photos are gorgeous!

Yes, Christmas is more than just a single day... or even a season. It's a state of mind.
