Merry Christmas – And All That Other Stuff Too

Christmas Ornament

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Hopefully you are enjoying this holiday season and have the opportunity to share some quality time with the people that are special to you – as I am doing today.
This time last year, my wife surprised me with a Nikon DSLR so I thought that it was fitting to share a picture that I took recently. If you’re wondering why I took a picture of a Christmas ornament off of our tree, I was experimenting with the these 5 tips for great holiday shots.
Well, I’ve got to run…there is some important business that needs my immediate attention.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Wow! That’s an expensive gift by my standards- I would never expect my scrooge wife to buy me such an extravagant gift!
Good on you!

That’s expensive by my standards too, which is why I was floored when my wife bought me that last year. This year we were much more low-key.

Hope you had a fun Christmas too. I’m taking an extended vacation into the New Year, but I’ll still be checking up on my favorite blogs at least once a day (kinda hard to stay away from the internet…).

We did have a fun Christmas. I’m on vacation until the 5th of January myself and have been trying to unplug a little bit to devote more time to being with the family.
Hope you’re enjoying your vacation and the holidays!

While that picture turned out very good and looks quite nice, I can’t help but feel that I’ve seen it before somewhere…have you shared that one with us previously?

Not here, I did share a link to it in the comments of a post over at The Man Page. Did you see it there?

Perhaps…I don’t really remember for sure. There was just a feeling of familiarity when I saw it. Most likely that is where it’s from though.

A good time if somewhat subdued and quiet this year.
That is quite a nice photograph there actually.

That’s a great photo!
Seriously, you should submit it to one of the microstock photo sites and make some royalties for downloads.
Enjoy your new camera and Happy New Year!

Would you mind if I linked to it on my site?

Not at all, although I prefer if you save a copy to your server and maybe provide a credit to me.
