About a year ago I found a really great photography club at Meetup – it’s a social calendar type website where you can find people in your town who share the same interests you do and get together in person.  We meet once a month and always have an “assignment.”  We all take pictures for the assignment then share it at our monthly meet-up.  It’s great to see how different people interpret the same thing.  This month’s assignment was “100 feet from your door.”

If anyone hadn’t noticed, it’s winter outside!  And I hate winter!  So going out into the cold to compose shots and play with my camera was not something I looked forward to.  But I got a few shots of the Christmas lights I have in my yard. Thought I’d share them with you here.

Even though they are dark, I love that the texture in the bark of the tree is so interesting.
