I have had a picture in my inbox for a couple of days now.
I have hesitated to post it for a couple of reasons.
- It is poor photography
- It is scary. Truly. You might want to turn away.
I took this picture Monday, from my front porch.
It is the very first picture I have ever tried to take in the dark.
It is awful, I was fumbling in the dark trying to fiddle with my settings in pitch blackness. The tripod should have been used.
But what I most wanted to say was, seriously Internet, I don’t care when you put up your Christmas lights.
Put them up in July for all I care, but please…please…please don’t turn them on till at least Thanksgiving.
Please don’t make me endure 2 whole months of Christmas lights.
Please don’t desensitize me to the wonderment of the Christmas season.
And stores…your killing me already with the music. I just can not get Jingle Bell Rock out of my head now.
That is all.
PS. I’d love some tips on how to take better night shots.
Dancin’ and prancin’ in jingle bell square…
In the frosty air…
