I’m really enjoying our platters of Christmas decorations — a by-product of the minimalist light tree that has replaced our traditional pine Christmas tree.
Set around the house, these bowls of sparkle are endlessly tempting to photograph. I particularly like the icicle star which seems to have ended up nestled amongst ribboned baubles and golden tinsel.

Christmas is all about creating and sharing memories. Sometimes what stays in our mind can be the smallest thing; a single ornament that stands out, and shines in the evening light. In the two shots above I’ve tried to create a sense of age and memory. In the second I’ve also tried to flatten everything around the Christmas Star. It’s what I want to remember.
