Trees and Angels

Well its that time of the year again. Last year I found it difficult to believe it really was the holiday season as I had associated Christmas time with cold, snow and holiday lights. This year is no different with the cold and snow part (still no snow and its quite warm); however now as I drive down the street to get to our house I see many homes alit with decorations and lights.

This past weekend Kim and I put up our tree (actually we have a few more decorations other than the tree). We rushed through it a bit more this time than in previous years. The tree itself is nearly 7 feet tall; something which is not represented well in this picture. I wanted to take a picture of the tree but rather than doing the usual side shot I wanted something just a little different. Actually I was a bit inspired by Mike's last Picture of the Week post about the emotions conveyed in photography.

I have an idea of the emotions this picture conveys to me, but I won't bias your opinions by telling. I'd be curious to hear the emotions evoked by my readers.

I have a few other pictures of our tree on my Picasa Web album.
