Each year, Cindie decorates our fireplace at Christmas time - and each year, I have been photographing the result. Because of the size and shape of the room and the lenses that I have, there is really only one angle from which I can take the photographs if I am to include the whole fireplace. Even then, the photographs have to be cropped to remove extraneous detail. The photograph above is from 2012.
Above is the fireplace as it was in 2011.
This is the fireplace as it was in 2010. Above it is displayed one of my photographs - it is now in the hallway.
And here is the fireplace decorated in 2009.
Finally, the first photograph in this series shows the fireplace as it was in 2008. This is my second most viewed photograph on Flickr with over 1,500 views at the time of writing.
