Week 50, Our Favorites!

Festive Colours are everywhere I look this time of year. The Christmas spirit is certainly out in full force around the towns of our group of photographers. I love looking through the photo stream and enjoying a sneak peek into your lives. This is my favorite time of year, but it's also my busiest. If your days are anything like mine, I'm cramming everything in. Holiday parties, Christmas decorating, Christmas Shopping, Endless gift wrapping and I'm on the very last leg of my main floor remodel. Despite the never-ending to-do lists, it's great that you are finding the time to squeeze this group into your week. Your Festive Colour shots are impressive, and it seriously made me feel under-decorated, so I'll be trying to catch up this week. {Big Smiles!}
Now on to our top ten. As always, our photographers are shown in no particular order. The link to the photographer is below the photograph. If you enjoy the work, visit the photographers links. Photography is fun, but it's hard work too. Your encouraging words might make all the difference to a photographer that struggled this week. So get out there and click away and spread some joy. (Tis the season and all...)
Ready. Set. Here we go...

As for the Ellenburg Photography photo of the week, I went with something a little different. If you follow my blog, you know I spent last weekend in New Orleans for PhotoNOLA. It's an awesome festival of photography. Here's my take on a Festive Colour of New Orleans, that can be celebrated year-round in the city.

But with 3 themes so similar back to back, the real struggle will be going out there and finding something different. But, that's why it's a 52 Week Challenge - haha! Let's get out there and struggle together.
