Quickie v1.363: A Very Horo Christmas

As the year is rapidly coming to a close and Christmas making way for New Years I figured I should get these posted as soon as possible lest it be 2012 already and Christmas long forgotten.

As I’ve now made it My Thing™ to take Horo with me places I decided to take a few shots of her on the family Christmas tree. I felt it would give off the most festive appearance with all the lights and decorations and wasn’t really too into recreating a nativity scene or something. I did try and find Horo a Santa hat to wear but came up with nothing in the right size around the house. Probably should have planned that out a bit better, but c’est la vie.

My Favourite Everyone Elses Favourite


I think part of the reason I prefer the one on the left is when viewing the original in Lightroom it doesn’t appear as dark due to lightroom being a darkly coloured application itself. Against the white of the site the photo looks too dark and the one on the right nicer. But when I open Lightroom back up I invariably choose the one on the left.

This one is kind of neat because if you look closely in the top right, you can see the entire room I shot in, along with me safely behind the body of my camera. Also a bit darkly lit but I like it all the same, I think it gives more overall context than the 2 above, though less than the header of course. That little red and white santa-like guy was made by my great-grandmother and has been on our Christmas tree for as long as I can remember. Actually there’s a couple of those, I remember in the past each one would have a Hershey’s Chocolate Kiss in their mouths, squeeze their cheeks and it would pop out.

        I wish I could have put her on my tree!

        Wait… I didn’t mean it like that when I typed it, but I will keep it there since…

        Wonderful photos Aka!
