These December days are so busy but I couldn't miss
joining Donna of Cottage Days and Journeys for her
monthly photo challenge.
Subject for this month, and most appropriate for the
season is, Let There Be Light.
Noticed this lovely candelabra, one of a pair, in an antiques shop in Wake Forest, NC back in early Autumn when we were out for an afternoon ride. Stunningly beautiful. Hopefully they are now on somebody's table, with pretty candles, and the glow of the holidays is reflected in the prisms. I added a little PicMonkey magic to this shot!
In October, At the M restaurant in fabulous Budapest, we dined on food that was delicious, enjoyed interesting conversation with owner Miklos - that's a sketch of him on the wall - and I fell for the brown wrapping papered walls covered with line drawings of furnishings and objects. But it was the lighting that made it lovely, simple hand stitched shades casting a friendly glow over the tiny space - just a few tables downstairs, a few more up - a place to remember always.
Of course I can't pass up a window shot.......and at this time of year you get my dining room window early on a December morning just after sunrise. A little glimpse of the chandelier and the small tree in the corner also added light to the sun shining through the white wooden snowflakes I always hang in this window for the holidays.
Hope you all stop by Donna's
December Personal Photo Challenge HERE.
Come join in - we'd love to see you.
This month, check out how much fun it is to play
with light when using your camera.
Fancy, expensive equipment isn't necessary - all these
shots were taken with my little Nikon Coolpix S6400.
