I can’t work up the enthusiasm for a Christmas tree, but I have put some decorations on a platter with tinsel and little lights. It makes a pretty table decoration.
The Big T is away and I am in full “sort my shit” mode. Which sent me to the garage in search of boxes. Which led me to the Christmas decorations.
Which of course led to a “ooh, shiny things” moment, and some playtime photographing twinkly lights.
Oh well; the tidying can begin again tomorrow.

I seem to have acquired Both Sides Now as an ear worm; singing it almost unconsciously in the last few days.
It’s probably a sign that I’m ready for the annual Christmas Love Actually screening — Emma Thompson’s scene as a wife realising her husband is unfaithful (with Joni Mitchell soundtrack), being by far the best part of a patchy, yet strangely watchable, movie.
“To me photography must suggest, not insist or explain.”
Ambiguity in an image can come from many sources; choice of subject, an unusual camera angle or focal point, unexpected movement, or shooting through an opaque surface — to think of a few.
By suggesting, rather than explaining, the photographer allows every viewer to create their own meanings and stories.
More fun that way.
