Nobow Is Back In Our Home
Every year on the day after Thanksgiving our elf on the shelf Nobow comes back to us for about a month. Each morning we wake up and find him somewhere new. Sometimes he brings gifts and sometimes he leaves us notes. We leave him notes as well to give to Santa. He leaves us each night to report how we are behaving to the big man at the North Pole. I am sure that you will see more of Nobow as we approach Christmas. He is fun to photograph, and it is an easy subject.
Trying Out A New Toy
With a lot of lights around the Christmas holiday I bought a star filter for my 77mm lenses. It is kind of a gimmicky thing, but I thought that it would be fun. Each year when the leaves are finally gone I fall into a bit of a funk. The outside just does not look right, and my photography takes a hit for a short time. The Christmas season is a great way to get out and make some photos. I thought the star filter could jazz up some of those shots. Now that I have it and have used it a little I think I can open a Olen Mills studio in my house.
