The timing of this injury is, as usual, very inconvenient. I have Christmas shopping to finish! Thank God for online shopping. I also can't easily take any pictures since my hands are tied up in crutches. I miss my camera, she hasn't been in my hand for weeks now and I am longing to capture some holiday lights and color. So until things are healed up enough for me to use my hands for shopping, baking, and snapping pictures I need to take some time to get my mind in photographer mode. Slow down, look around, take notice. The details are still there and still beautiful even though I don't have the means to capture them to share. I can still enjoy and appreciate the details and moments of the season. I can also enjoy the beauty of fellow photographers that consistently take my breath away. I created a gallery in flickr of a few of the Christmas lovelies, click the link and enjoy!
