51/52 for the group 52 of 2012

This week's theme was: Emotion

Here I am wondering what our daughter has bought me for Christmas. I've called this "Curiosity" though "Anticipation" would also fit.

Self-portraits are beginning to hold less terror for me, though it still takes half a dozen shots to get one I like.

Zoomburst Christmas tree

51/52 for the group T189ers weekly alphabet challenge

This week's theme was: Zoomburst

Eeeee! Light explosion from the tiny Chrismas tree. I must try this again now I know how to do it.

I have seen other people's shots done with this technique, but I've never ventured to try it until now.

This was done in camera and the only editing has been a slight crop and a bit of brightening. (The light in our sitting room is not the brightest.)
