New Traditions

Last year, too late to try it, I had seen someone’s idea to wrap books for the Advent calendar. Since my son is 8 this year I don’t think we will get many years out of it but it will be fun. I wrapped up 24 Christmas books or activity books and he will open one every night and we will read it that night. Today I am grateful for new traditions. I am also grateful that I received my new lens. I found it on eBay. Yea. However, I had forgotten that I changed my camera from AF to M in order to try to figure the lens out, so my pictures weren’t coming out too well.

Following along with Paper Coterie’s Prompt Me for the 31 days of Christmas.

Not my finest, but my first experiment at Christmas tree bokeh, right after I had taken the lens out of the box and it was way too sunny behind.

  1. Wrapped books for your advent calendar idea is great, at least it’s healthier than chocolates. I love the bokeh xmas tree, not to worry about the backlight, it’s beautiful all the same.
