Photo Challenge #25 - Low Light

I enjoyed this challenge, but found that I had better pictures in my archieves from the last year than I was able to take tonight. This one was the best of the bunch from this evening, when I lit the candle and took out the camera.
This is my favorite from our Hanukkah celebrations last December. James loves to light the candles and say the Hanukkah prayers. Being a bi-religion family (my husband was raised Methodist and I was raised Jewish), James gets a little bit of both.

And I took this picture over the summer on a camping trip. James is always mesmerized by the campfire and can sit for hours looking into it and talking quietly with us.......treasured moments!
While I wasn't terribly successful this week, this challenge has heightened my awareness of how to take low light pictures. I shall continue to work on it!!

I think it is great that James is getting both religious traditions!! How wonderful that you guys are open enough to allow him that gift, to find more than one path to God is incredibly important, and one day he will find what best fits him. All is sacred!

oh Lenore....I remember James fascination with candle light....perfect selection. Pefection in itself. Though the campfire tells a real story.
