What do eight nights of Chanukah mean? Family time, presents, Skype . . . and the potential for too many boring photos of burning candles.
This Chanukah I pushed myself to change up my photo angles to see things in a different light (ha ha!).
Plus I tried my best to include my older son, who was Skyping with us from college, into pix with my younger son as he lit the menorah. That mostly was a lesson in proper-exposure futility.
On the fourth night, I snapped photos from below the menorah.
The next night I focused on shooting the candles lined up like waxy soldiers.
My favorite angle became one from the side as I took photos of my #2 son lighting the candles.
But I also was intrigued by solo candles that dripped and drizzled until they finally ran out of wax to burn.
Did I snap a bunch of boring photos this Chanukah? I was mostly satisfied with how I documented the menorah’s burning candles. Of course, for me, as long as nothing gets set on fire, I’d say our holiday was a blazing success!
