Lights On

How tasteful, no?

I was just experimenting with an old Christmas tree model, adjusting the lights to see if I could spin it into something worth posting again. I took the branches and baubles out completely, leaving only those lights. It was quite fun playing with the lens flare and reflexes, and experimenting with the resulting effects. It’s not quite time to get the tree out yet, but it’s drawing ever closer. How exciting! Until that day comes, this will do.

Here are some impressive lights flashing in sync with one of my favourite festive songs. Thank you, YouTube recommendations.

      Me too! This is the time where you see more lights popping up with every journey. Always fun.

  1. Cool! It looks great, Jacob. I like how the colour and light become muted away from the centre. Our tree went up last week and looks brilliant at dusk with the lights on – went for less decorations on it this year and more lights! Feeling very Christmassy now 🎄🎄🤶🎅

      Thanks! I like how the lens flares created an effect of their own. Yay for more Christmas lights! There’s nothing quite like that cosy feeling of the first night with the tree up and lit, it really gets you in the mood.

  2. Our tree went up at the end of November… too soon? Don’t get sick of them by Christmas so I’d say not 🎄

      Ooh, controversial! It’d be very early for me; as a kid they would always go up about a week before Christmas so I’ve just stuck with that. It does seem like people put them up earlier each year!

      • Maybe just have the tree put away for a week in June ?
