Season of Lights

Picture the Holidays Day 16 - Season of LIghts

Thiry Days Of Thanks Picture The Holidays - Day 16

They call this the season of lights for many reasons and there are ample opportunities to shoot light in it's many shapes and shades. There is nothing more compelling than a literal Bokeh of holiday lights. The first time I captured lights like this, I was as giddy as a kid on Christmas morning! My guess is you'll feel it too

Mom called this morning to make sure I was ok, since she didn't see the usual morning blog post. I'm fine, just very busy and I absolutely had to spend some time working on the house today. As an old country fried friend of mine used to say, "I'm gonna need to either dust or plow." I chose to dust (among other things).

I also had something very specific in mind for today's prompt which necessitated going out to buy colored Christmas lights and some black card stock Rather than explain what I did, I'll just leave you with a how-to link here and move on to the next prompt so I don't get behind. :)

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.

Today's Linkups


  1. Great result Leanne....and fun too. Sweet of your Mom to call, but that's exactly the reason my Mom has no clue that I even have a blog. A girl needs some space, you know? Have a great day.

  2. LeAnne, this is absolutely magnificent!!

    Thank you so very much for sharing at The Creative Exchange this week.

    I wish you a beautiful Holiday.


  3. Love this bokeh! You've inspired me to experiment a bit while the lights are up! Merry Christmas!

  4. Very pretty effect!
