lights

I was reading this post & though it was the perfect time of year to experiment with photographing lights. 
So this evening I wandered around the streets near where I live & found some lights.

On front fences.....

in shop windows....

......and just around and about.

 I changed the focus of this shot during a long exposure- I quite like the effect.

Merry Christmas!

  1. Wonderful Leanne! I'm glad you got out and about to capture the lights. I like the effect you got on the changing focus one too. You'll have to play with that some more. Thanks for joining us in Exploring with a Camera this month!
