this or that thursday: playing with lights

I'm happy to say I now have a fully decorated tree and I've even bought one present! I also had fun this week taking pictures of my neighbor's colorfully lit tree. I used the method described here to get shaped bokeh. Then I used one of the magic textures by Kim Klassen. They are available at the bottom of this post. Just be sure to add it to your photo as a screen blending mode if you try it. I love the chalkboard-like effect these textures have...

And now it's time to link up again! There are just a few rules.
  • submit the url of your blog post, not your home page
  • link up a photo that was taken by you
  • include a link back to my blog in your post (you can use the button or a text link if you prefer)
  • visit a few other blogs and leave some comment love 
Okay, let's see what you've been shooting!
