Becky’s little Christmas tree, with a suitcase on the right to hide the electric cords, and part of a studio light because – at the time – I had no other place to put it
I did not plan on putting up my tree this year. After all, I’d be visiting my sister and her family for the holidays, so why go to the effort of putting up a tree I would not see for the final 1-1/2 weeks of December?
One afternoon, however, during the weekend prior to Thanksgiving, while on a long walk, I was thinking how nice it would be to see bright, multi-color lights. My mind’s eye saw all sorts of photo ops….
No solicitation, Santa. Just leave the presents and don’t try to sell me anything.

My home is small, but cozy and bright with neat pictures hanging on the walls (grin)
I actually wasn’t going to put up a tree this year; too many other things going on. Then, one Saturday evening, I started thinking up photo ops that required the use of a brightly-lit and decorated tree. So, at 10PM that night, I pulled the tree out of storage; it’s fake and pre-lit so it makes setup and decorating a breeze.
Since the tree has been up, I’ve been milking the photos for all they are worth. I used my tripod, Canon 1DX and 5D Mk III, and either a 40mm pancake lens, a 24-105mm lens or my prime 85mm f1.2 lens to get the shots you see below. I love decorations and colored lights, so this has been fun and I’m glad I put that tree up, after all.
Here’s wishing all of you a Merry Christmas!
