Hello All Season Bloggers,

This week the link is open from Sunday December 9 through Friday December 14 at noon, Pacific time.

Loved  reading all your lovely blog posts, look at your awesome photos, I really enjoyed each of yours – thank you!

Many of us have all these things to do in December, but it would be nice to relax for a day and take time for simple things, so life doesn’t pass us by like a supersonic train, barreling through life!
One feature of simplicity is that these images are taken at my own house.


No All Seasons the week of December 23

What caught my attention, was the bowed branch
of the tree. Some of the background is blurry from
the smoke of my fire rising from the chimney.
It goes against my nature to minimize color.
To show minimal color is simplicity for me.



A moody  window view in December.
Am relieved that in winter,
I have one wall of windows.
The two orange spots are reflections.




Also against my grain is to reduce the saturation,
and to make the image darker.  As one blogger
defined it for me that I paint with light,
and  have the same tendency for my photos.


Hope you’re taking it easy some days in this month!

    yes, I am not one to desaturate my photos. Seems to be all the rage right now; especially, in wedding photography.

    Hello; Oh , I wondered how to paint with light (*^.^*) All of your pictures have wonderful wintry mood and stunned by the nature from the view through the window♪ Thank you SO much for hosting.
    And I really appreciate your comments. Well, for the normal rice we don’t usually put salt but for freshly steamed “glutinous rice”, I think salt is a must p;-) Have a WONDERFUL rest of the week.

    Your first photo of the curving branch caught my eye. I do appreciate the minimal color, and that it’s natural. You certainly have an artistic eye! Have a wonderful week!

    Lovely contemplative shots, Jesh. It is always wise to try and stop and reflect somewhere quiet – December all the more…


  9. Life goes way too fast, especially this time of year, so having some simplicity and quiet times is vital. Have a restful week.

    I love the idea of painting with light, that’s an excellent way to describe photography. Me, I just take a bunch of shots and hope for the best. How nice to have a wall of windows and that’s a great angle. Cool and interesting bowed tree with the hint of a warm chimney puffing away in the background.

    Love the tree view – hope you have a great week!


  12. The window view is moody really. Have yourself a relaxing but joyful December!


    1. Love that beautiful tower and the dance of the statues on the roof! The bridge is lovely and the view of the snowy mountains is beautiful! Even though the sun is shining, everyone is dressed warm, so it probably was cold? Hope you’re enjoying the new decorations you purchased? Have a beautiful December week!
