Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is enjoying time with family & friends, sipping on coffee or hot cocoa, watching your favorite Christmas movie, and, since it's Sunday, worshipping with your family. I'm looking forward to all of that today and more. I love Christmas!

I took this shot two nights ago in Tupelo on our way back from seeing the awesome display of Christmas lights in Cotton Plant, MS, a must see next year if you haven't seen it yet. Anyway, I had this idea to do some light painting in front of a Christmas tree and I knew that Tupelo had a really big one in Fairpark, so my wife, a friend, and I worked together to make this shot happen. I wrote out Merry and my friend, Jeff, wrote Xmas (Christmas was too big of a word to write out in the time we had to take the photo, sorry to those we get offended easily) while my wife took the photo. This is a 30 second exposure and the light painting was done with the flashlights on our iPhones. It took about 4 or 5 tries but we finally got it! I love playing with long exposures and discovering what you can do. It's challenging but fun to try, especially with other people.

Hopefully you are not tired of seeing posts from Tupelo, but I got a lot of photos there over the last weekend so I felt it necessary to show them to you.
