Friday Bench: Gift Tag

Picture of a home made gift tag with a bench

I’ve been making gift tags from last year’s Christmas cards – an annual family tradition πŸ™‚

It’s only now that I see one of them features a bench. Perfect.

Have a good Christmas everyone.

Friday Bench: Ghostly Shoppers

Whilst I wasΒ in Bristol last week taking pictures of the Christmas lights for Veg Plotting,Β I’d moved upstairs at Cabot Circus to get a different viewpoint of the tree with its Christmas lights.

Whilst there, I noticed the relative stillness of the 2 peopleΒ on the bench compared with the shoppers passing them. As I was taking hand held pictures in relatively low light, IΒ thought this might result in some interesting shots, suggesting solitude amongst the Christmas shopping melee.

The light patterns on the floor are from a lighting effect projected from the second floor. The tree is a real one and because it’s growing in a semi-covered spot, it hasn’t lost all of its leaves yet.
