one of my favorite christmas tree activities was and is simply looking at the tree out of focus. as you may remember, I have but one functioning eye, so I wasnt even sure this was possible to do with two eyes, but I’m pretty sure it is. I’m never quite sure how everyone else sees things.
anyway, I like to just look at the tree lights and bring everything to a blur. it makes the twinkle and sparkle all that much more fun. of course I cant hold it that way for very long before I get a headache.
similarly, I also like slow-shutter photography, with which I entertained myself for quite a few years. my old SLR is long gone, and the abilities of our little digicam are limited, but I had a little fun with it this evening, taking some funky shots of our tree. Michelle made an ink-blot kinda game out of it, seeing ballarinas and dogs in various shots. what do you see?
