When stuck inside due to inclement weather, what else can a photographer do but take interior pictures?
As I “read” in the Important Room, I glanced up and noticed the angle of the light and the mirror and thought, “What a great photo that would make!”
So I took the picture. And in the process, I learned a couple of new things about my Nikon A1000 camera. I love that camera, and I’m so glad I bought it!
Meanwhile outside, the plants are struggling to survive the winter. I remember receiving this tiny winterberry plant for Christmas last year, and thought “Oh no! Never give me anything green and growing! Plants always die around me!”
Fortunately, this one didn’t. It seems to enjoy its new place in front of the house. While I knew winterberry berries are red (when they eventually appear), I never realized the leaves would turn red when the weather turned cold. Someday when it’s a big bush, it’s going to be lovely. Hopefully, it will keep growing on its own and totally ignore me.
Let me leave you with this thought as we all go screaming into 2020:
While Christmas trifle is tasty, trifling with someone’s emotions is not. Don’t those cookies look terrified? The baker swears they were smiling when taken out of the box before being put into the pudding. But I guess I also wouldn’t look too happy if I knew I was about to be eaten.
Happy 2020, Everyone!
