One of the things I love about photography, is that we can choose our own challenges. It is up to me if I just take random images with no common thread, or if I want to find a theme, something to tie all the images together. I find working to a theme, both easier, and more challenging.
Easier because I have a reason, and an aim. More challenging, because I have to put some though into it. Make it work, rather than just shoot away.
Hopefully I have managed to convey the feeling of Christmas, using black and white images.
Have a splendid Christmas, and a fun and groovy New Year.
