12-14-10 Christmas from England

Put the tree up tonight with the family. A dinner of crackers and chips (crisps) and cheese and popcorn. Lots of nutrition in there. Most of my ornaments have memories associated with them and I try to pick one up when I go somewhere special. This one is from last years trip to London that I took with two girlfriends.

I have discovered that it is difficult to get good bokeh with a low cost, auto focusing point and shoot. If money wasn't so tight this year a camera would definately be on my list, but it will not be coming so I will keep working with what I have. I do miss my old film camera which was easy on batteries and allowed me to play with the focus to my hearts content. I did have to wait until the film came back from development to see what I focused on. Pros and cons to both methods.

Edit: cropping
I think it looks great with your camera!

Super Christmas shot.

My wife, Liz, also collects a Christmas tree ornament from every place we visit. We accounts for why we have pelicans and emus with santa hats on!

Love your 'phone box ...but it should be Blue. That would only make sense if you were a Dr Who fan! I only have a P&S camera and I love it. Give me digital any day.
