Picturing the Holidays

This month, the class I'm taking online is Picture the Holidays. Billed as 30 days of festive photography, each day we get a special prompt to photograph a feeling, an object or a technique. 

While browsing at Cost Plus World Market a few weeks ago, these wonderful glass birds caught my eye as part of a Christmas decor display. I simply had to have them!

 They are just so pretty, I find them irresistible.

My 90mm 2.8 macro lens is truly a favorite. Perfect for getting the details up close. This tiny pink feather tree just makes me feel so good all year long.

Since I could not find the right vintage style Christmas tree I wanted, I wound up placing some of the ornaments on the pink feather tree for photo purposes. 

While a bit too big for the tree, it did make a great background.

I appreciate you stopping by today and do hope you are enjoying your holidays in whichever way you celebrate! 

Happy Holidays!
