Week 51: Stillness

My clock is all kinds of off.  I thought yesterday was Wednesday all day and the WPC didn’t even cross my mind.  The hubs burst my bubble at dinner and told me that it was in fact only Tuesday.  But I shot up out of bed this morning – it was Wednesday and I hadn’t taken my photo yet!  (This has happened more times than I’d like to admit… so I won’t confess any more than that.)  Armed with my camera at 5am, finding “stillness” wasn’t hard as everyone else was still in bed, but I have a hard time being inspired with things in my home.  Nothing is interesting.  So I opted for the more festive.

Here is my stillness:

Week 51: Stillness

After all, it is that time of year.  With a tree full of lights and a dark room, this gave me the chance to play with settings, trying to find what I liked best.  And I recently set up my camera for back-button focus – I still haven’t gotten the hang of it but me thinks this could be a blossoming relationship.  I just need to figure out how to change my focal point faster for metering.  Well… I think that’s right… actually, it’s too early to think, forget everything I’ve said so far.

I’ll be visiting the Flickr Group later today and I’m hoping to see different takes on “stillness.”  It can be photographed in many different ways and I’m excited to see what everyone else cooked up.  You should be too.  Next week is our last week, Week 52.  I cannot believe the year has flown by like it has but that’s life.  Our final subject is BLACK & WHITE.  Good luck, have fun, expand your mind, happy snapping!
