Weekly Photography Challenge – Holiday Images


Nothing hard this week for the photography challenge. Just show us your holiday-themed images. How do you celebrate with your family? Is it a big festive meal? Then photograph that. Do you deck the house out with sparkly lights? Photograph that!

Weekly Photography Challenge – Holiday Images

Time to practice shooting bokeh with your Christmas tree or holiday lights. Or maybe try some fireworks if your city sets them off for the holidays.

Editor’s note: A crazy but true story, I was in Matagalpa in Nicaragua on December 25th last year and that city set off the official fireworks in the local central park – but that wasn’t the only ones! All around our hotel we saw fireworks in every direction, right at midnight. And it went on for about 30 minutes! We were doing our Christmas tradition – watching Die Hard – and at first, we ignored it. But it went on for so long we had to go look. They really like fireworks in Nicaragua and call them “bombas” or little bombs.

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer, upload them to your favorite photo-sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.
