This is another unique Christmas decoration that gets put out once a year. There’s nothing like a donkey and camel procession that says, “Christmas.”

(Behind the scenes: For those who might be interested in seeing how framing, composition, aperture and angle affect the outcome of a photograph, check out this alternative view of the “Procession,” which was shot using natural window light in our dining room. While I’m at it, here’s the first iteration of “Procession,” before I realized that the lights on the tree serving as the back drop might provide a little visual interest to the photo.)

(Oh, and do I really need to tell you to check out my bokeh?)

  1. Bokeh is “the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image.” Some lenses do a better job of rendering “good bokeh” than others. The lens I used here did a good job.
