Silly Time is Here


(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

On our first Christmas after we got married, Betsy and I took some pictures which we used in Christmas cards the following Christmas.  That led to our habit of taking ‘formal’ pictures each Christmas morning.

Our routine is to set up the tripod, get dressed in nice clothes, and take many pictures, hoping that at least one is a ‘keeper’.

The whole process can take a fair amount of time, which can lead to some silly pictures as well as good ones.

Santa gave me a post-Christmas present of a neat collage maker.  The collage in this post is my first attempt to make a collage from scratch.

    Those are so cute! My hubby and I used to do the same thing, only on Christmas Eve. Mostly we never got anything we could use on a card, but it’s fun to look back at all those photos now. Never thought about making a collage out of them, but I might play around with that just for fun.

    Happy New Year to you and Betsy!

    Your tripod gets some good workouts. 🙂 The photos are all nice, even the silly ones, and will be treasures in the years ahead.
