Contemporary Decorations

TurquoiseTomorrow is the last day of Christmas and traditionally all the festive decorations will be taken down.

Going-blueSince early December there has been a contemporary Christmas Tree erected outside the University of Suffolk on the Ipswich Waterfront.

Going-greenI saw it being erected and was unsure about its appearance, but once night fell and the lights were switched on I thought the subtly changing colours were rather beautiful.

Hard to grasp the scale, but easier with a human in shot!

Christmas is about traditions, but it is pleasing to see new contemporary, festive interpretations too.

    1. Thank you. I have to admit my decade old camera had it’s last moments during the summer and so I replaced it with another much newer version. All though the new one is again secondhand, the improved quality of the camera and a new lens has been a real positive especially in shooting in low light.

      1. Maybe it’s time for me to look at a new one although I’ve always been impressed with your lighting so I think you deserve as much credit as your camera😊

      2. Thank you for your encouraging comment. However, I have to admit it is the little secret of my newish camera – it is so VERY much better at shooting in low light conditions than my old one. My Mum’s favourite artist was Rembrandt so I was brought up to appreciate how a Master works with light.
