Photo Blogging Challenge (December 2013): Festive
Did you feel festive in December?
I sure hope so if you were taking part in the photo challenge! I honestly didn’t take many photos with my regular camera this much, even though I had planned on doing so. Such is the life when trying to adjust to many new things. But I snapped many a shot with the phone, so my post will have a bit of an Instagram theme.
What’s really too bad, though, is some of the best festive images I took were work-related, and I don’t really feel comfortable posting them here. It’s too bad as there are some that I really loved.
I actually enjoyed this month for the first time in the past couple of years. Though I didn’t dislike it in the past, it didn’t feel the same. This time, it did. So many things happened this month and I’ve had the chance to really get into things a little differently.
What I truly love about this month is there’s so much to be festive with. Hopefully there will be some different takes on the them. I pretty much went with the traditional way of looking at things as I was finally in that frame of mind once again.
So, without wasting any more time, here are my five images for the month.
This image isn’t just about gifts, but rather a small buildup of ones for my brother’s new son, who was born a few days before Christmas. This is a few of those boxes. Having the new guy around for Christmas really made it a festive time.
2. Elf with a beer
The Elf on the Shelf thing is pretty hot, it seems. Anyway, at my one brother and sister-in-law’s house, it seems to be a game. On Christmas Eve, I came across it in the fridge. He looked thirsty… so…
3. Caching Christmas
Our area has an annual geocaching event/ornament exchange. It’s one of my favorite events of the year and this year, as usual, was pretty solid all around. This is the tree/ornaments at the event.
4. Christmas light
I love the looks of lights during the Christmas season. It really puts me in the festive mood.
My mother’s homemade caramels are definitely part of the season and always make you feel festive!
And that’s my five for the month of December.
If you took part this month, make sure you link up below. And for those who participated, make sure you try and get to other people’s blogs and comment and visit so we can continue to grow this challenge.
Don’t forget, too, to come back tomorrow (Jan. 1) and see the theme for January!
NOTE: I also set up a Facebook group for those who participate in the challenge and are interested. I’ll post any announcements there and hopefully it can be a place where things are discussed and some interaction etc. You can access it here.
