All This From A Bad Photo…

IMG_8924I had a small burst of energy this evening, after having spent the past three days laid up on the couch with a high fever and cough.

This evening I got up, made a Quiche and then tried to take a photograph of our Christmas tree.

The Quiche turned out just fine, the photograph – not so much.  My attempt is shown above – what should have been twinkling lights and delicate ornaments is nothing but confused streaks of light on a monochrome setting.

I have no idea what I was thinking when I pressed the shutter release.

As is the way my brain has been working for the past few days.  I am functioning at half speed and it is draining me.

My first reaction upon seeing my mis-placed capture was that it was unusable for anything.

But the more I studied it, the more I saw myself in those wavy lines – given my current state of affairs.  I feel as though, as what happened in the photo above, someone is hitting my shutter release before I am ready.


Or maybe I am just delirious.  Excuse me while I go take my temperature again…

(You know what though?  I have grown fond of my accidental capture.)

MagicYou have to agree – when we put up the tinsel and the small silver beads…when we light up our trees and hang our treasured ornaments…everything seems to feel little bit like…
