Project MCP: Highlights from December, Challenge #1

I am ashamed to say that it is December 7th and I still haven’t decorated my Christmas tree. As a matter of fact, if it hadn’t been for our family Elf on the Shelf, “Scout”, it might still be in the box. Christmas tree aside, I have managed to get  a few of my favorite…

I love the holiday season! Silver bells, mistletoe, evergreen trees with twinkling lights and Santa in the mall, I really enjoy watching the season evolve; trees, streets, houses and even whole towns coming to life with lights and good cheer (and of course a Humbug or two).

Project MCP: Highlights from August, Challenge #3

The 2012 Summer Olympic Games may be over, but the memories, stories and honors will stay with those who watched forever.

When applied to photography, “bokeh” refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur created by taking photos with a shallow depth of field. For some of you, this technique may have been…
