Macro Monday - Happy Monday


These are some mini candles I pulled out the other day during the last storm.  Luckily, my power only blinked off briefly, unlike some other folks around town.  I pulled out all my candles and put on the fireplace, just in case.  I have to tell you, the house did smell good with the scented candles going!


Also wanted to join with Allie Photography today.  Her prompt this week is Black and White.  I thought I would use a favorite from my archives - one that was from a mostly white day!

I often use candles even when the power doesn't go out. A great macro.

I love your mostly white photo - the texture combined with the lamppost gives off a really vintage-y feel. :)

I love the white winter scene; it looks like it could be a scene from Narnia!
I burn loads of candles al winter, just for the cosiness of it. Lovely photo!
