OUTSIDE LOOKING IN......Me and a Ghost?

You know when you're driving down some streets at night, u are compelled to look into the windows of the homes as you go by. The curtains aren't yet drawn so u get a glimpse into their lives. Wonder who they are, is the home a warm happy one? Oh I see they have their Christmas tree up, or wow what a big TV...As we peek, our minds often ask split second questions like those ones.


It was such a cool night with a light snow falling that I was compelled to go outside and see if I could capture the sky. When I did, it was almost 2 am ...Yes I threw on a pair of sweat pants, under my nighty, and went outside at 2 am lol. It was worth it though..although I have a really cheep camera, as is often evident lol, I still like a cpl of these pics.


I hope that ppl driving by thinks my home is warm and inviting...I love that u can see my Christmas tree ...although blurry, u get the picture lol....

From the other angle, u see the beautiful trees that surround my modest home...I love how the branches are bare in winter as much as they are full in summer. See what I mean about the sky being bright , even in the dead of night...with the snow falling in the air it was very odd...no need for street lights this night, it was so clear ...

NOEL 07 Our house at night


When I used the flash, all it showed was the snowflakes in the air..the rest was mostly black as u see on this pic below...this photo however, was different, I do believe I had company lol. It looks to me like a ghost flying towards my house. So we were both outside looking in lol. Incase you're wondering, it wasn't cold enough to generate any condensation from breathing, nor was it foggy, it was very clear, and the other flash pics didn't show anything out of the ordinary lol...So I am convinced that this ghost stopped by because he too thought my house looked warm and inviting lol...


NOEL 07 ...ghost pic?


And finally, I think he was inpressed with my tree...I got a photo of all the lights on it..all be it abit blurry lol...Only because the only way you can catch the lights is if you turn all the house lights off and your flash too...I really need a better camera ...although, I would have to do the same with a better one...atleast u now see that I put almost a gazilion lights on my tree lol...


NOEL 07 the tree's lights


So there you have it...me , you and a ghost, outside looking in lol. What do u think? Even with a fushia door..Does my home look warm and inviting? I hope so ....

Yes, it does, Moon. I really like the photo showing the snow in the trees outside your door, and the tree looks like it has a gazillion lights!

Your home looks wonderful, Moon! If I were driving by, I'd definitely slow down.

I like the second photo of the house with the tree - that is superb, most welcoming......

And the snowflakes - very pretty.

The bells have just chimed here in the UK....

HAPPY NEW YEAR, moon, all the way from England.
