ornaments

i got the macro lens out yesterday to see if i could capture any good shots of the ornaments or lights on the tree. a macro lens is pretty tricky to handle, so because this is only my second time using it, the pictures are not as crisp as i would like. but here are some of my favorites!


doesn't the purple and gold look nice together? i do realize there is silver on the purple ball, which would normally bother me, but i didn't notice it until just now! so, i obviously can't tell on the tree! good thing!


we've got little gold bells and purple bells on our tree.

Those are awsome! I love how in the first one the ornament is framed by the pine needles. Oh, and HI NANI!!

Hi, Nani! I hope Kawena is keeping all of the purple bells out of her mouth! My favorite is the gold one with the horizontal stripes. Beautiful!

Purple and Gold, GO MARSHFIELD PIRATES! Sorry, couldn't resist. Those were my high school colors.
