Christmas from Around the World – 9 days to go

mg_0782

It has been an interesting week.  I have nearly done all the images for the City of Melbourne, just a few left, and it is almost time for me to start thinking about Christmas here, what to get my girls and husband for Christmas.  So tough.  However, today is not about me, it is about other people and I have been sent emails with links and have some Christmas photos for you from other people.

Mary from Sublime Days sent me a link to some photos she posted last Christmas. This is what she said to me, “last year while I was living in the city of Lowell it was so gorgeous to my eye during Christmas time that I wanted to capture it exactly as I saw it. The photos that I sent to you are the ones I thought really did capture it.”

Then I received an email from Thomas at THETOMPOSTPILE and he wrote,

“Thanks so much for your faithful blogging. Your energy and persistence (and skill and beautiful work) are inspirational. I have taken your comment about “only one person sent pictures” to heart, and hereby send you some Christmas photos from my part of the world, in this case, Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.”

Robert from FINISTERRE also sent me a link to his blog and some of hit Christmas photos.  His were a little different, it was Christmas in the office, which is often fun.  Not something I get to do because I work from home, I suppose I could have a party on my own.

Then I received an email from Dani at Henry Arthur Photography with some more Christmas photos, these ones had snow.

 

I also received an email from Laura from LAURA MACKY who inspired me to write the post about taking night photos, I knew she was about to go and get some and I have to say I think she did a great job.

I had to include some Christmas photos from one of my oldest blogging friends, Marie  from My Little Corner of Rhode Island.  We have been following one another almost from the time I started blogging, and I have enjoyed our friendship ever since.  So here are some of her photos.

Then when I got up this morning I found an email from Ingrid with a link to her blog, Road Tripping Europe and some of the photos she had taken at a Christmas market in Brussels.

It is so nice to see Christmas from around the world and how people celebrate it.  I haven’t said where all these people are from, but you can go to their blogs and find out for yourself.

The weather is starting to heat up here, we are expecting 40°C on Thursday, so no summer at all, then it hits us suddenly, not really good.  Though with the weather warming up, I am hoping I can get out more and take lots more summer Christmas photos for you.

There is one more Monday before Christmas, so if you have some photos, please, please send me an email, my email address is leanne@leannecole.com.au, I would love to show more images next Monday.

    • It was a good response, I was really happy, and I have even started getting some for next Monday, so that is great as well. You are very welcome Lee, it is great to see people enjoying them.

  2. What incredible variety and quality! I don’t even know where to begin, saying which I love the most, although that dog covered in Christmas lights really gets me!

    December 16, 2013
    • There is great variety, which is great, I love the dog too, had to include that one.

      December 16, 2013
  3. Beautiful pictures, I enjoyed the Christmas around the world theme!

    December 16, 2013
    • They are great images, and I am glad you enjoy these, I like the theme too.

      December 16, 2013
  4. It was interesting to look at pictures from around the world. You had a brilliant idea Leanne.

    December 16, 2013
    • Thank you Colline, I hoped people would enjoy it, I hope you can send some from your part of the world.

      December 16, 2013
      • I will try my best though this last week at school is crazy busy. I am walking around with my camera now hoping to get a few nice shots for you.

        December 16, 2013
      • I can understand how busy this time of the year can be, so if you can that would be great Colline. I saw the shots you got of the park, they were beautiful.

        December 17, 2013
      • Thank you Leanne.

  6. Fun post! I enjoyed looking at all the photos. It’s always great to see others’ perspectives which will hopefully go toward improving my own photography. Thank you for including me!

    December 16, 2013
    • I agree Laura, it is great to see other people’s perspective. I hope you continue to grow. You are welcome, loved your input.

  7. Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas, Leanne. About this time of year I start wondering why time passes so fast. Life is Good!

    December 16, 2013
    • Merry Christmas to you as well Mary, thank you so much. I think the same about time, it always seems to get here too quickly and yes, life it good.

      December 16, 2013
  8. I really enjoyed seeing all these photos from around the world. Thanks for sharing, Leanne.

    December 16, 2013
    • That is great Carol, glad you like them, I enjoy seeing them as well.

      December 16, 2013
  9. There are some lovely photos here. When I look at what other countries do, I sometimes think here in Australia we don’t do enough in the way of decorations to celebrate the festive season.

    December 16, 2013
    • I have to agree Penny, though I think the City of Melbourne has done a brilliant job in the city, however my local council has not done a great job, pretty pathetic really. Though I guess it costs lots of money to do it, so maybe they are trying to save money. I don’t know.

      December 17, 2013
  10. Very pretty shots of Christmas!

    December 17, 2013
    • They are wonderful, glad you liked them.

      December 17, 2013
      • I love watching how others celebrate the holidays Christmas is a special one :)

        December 17, 2013
      • I agree, I love it, and it is always great to see that others do.

        December 17, 2013
  11. Lights!

    December 17, 2013
  12. Very nice.

    Some of the decorations are starting to appear on my street, so the plan is to shoot some tonight. Not much has been decorated this year. I think the bitter cold we had more than a week ago really put a damper on those who decorate big.

    December 17, 2013
    • I hope you can shoot some David, send me a link to your photos, would love to include some from you next Monday.
      It is starting to heat up here, so that is a worry, we are going from one extreme to the other.

      December 17, 2013
  13. A wonderful around-the-world in Christmas lights!

    December 17, 2013

  16. What a great idea – and some stunning results. Nice one! Good luck with the shopping.

    December 17, 2013

      December 17, 2013
