Undersea Tree

This christmas tree isn’t a tree at all, it’s a worm living under this coral. It will keep its delicate blue crowns exposed like this to catch food and breathe until it detects something nearby, and then will quickly retract into the coral. This one let me get close enough for a shot with my camera before deciding I was too close and going away to hide.

Christmas in the Rotunda

To see this tree you only have to take a few steps away from the crowds of Union Square. The tree itself is huge, but all the intricate details of the surrounding room really make it feel extra festive.

Christmas Angel

I harnessed some Christmas energy and experimented a bit to get this shot. When taking pictures of Christmas lights this year, I found that out of focus lights created a much more dramatic effect by making the light much larger. When I saw these holiday decorations in my neighborhood, I decided to take photos both in and out of focus. By re-focusing at different spots I was able to highlight the shape of the lights. The result is really dreamy on the edges, while at the same time pulling your attention to the angel in the center. Merry Christmas!

Electric Snowflakes

Sometimes the best snowflakes are those powered by many tiny LEDs. No shoveling required!

Ornament

This ornament was originally my dad’s. It was designed to hold a light that is bigger than the ones on my tree, but I liked the way it shines and made it work. Merry Christmas!

Christmas comes up pretty fast…

…just like this Holiday CalTrain that rolls through the valley this time of year.

Merry and Bright

It doesn’t snow where I live, but it does where I grew up. When I’m home for the holidays I get a chance to appreciate all the cold and snow! Merry Christmas!
