C is for Champagne

champagne flutes illuminated by christmas lights

Occasionally I am minded to pick up my old dSLR camera, the lens on which I really love. It’s a 35mm f2 (which won’t mean much unless you have an understanding of photography). The dSLR itself is ‘ancient’ – a D50 dating from – wait for it – 2005. Only 6MP but still takes lovely pictures, and honestly, who really needs so much more resolution than that? I still love the camera and combination – though in truth it doesn’t get out much these days (as is always the way when one over-relies on mobile phone photography).

The pic is of the new champagne flutes I’ve bought for the upcoming party I am hosting later this week, illuminated by some cheap Christmas lights I have also bought. An American friend – whom I refer to as ‘the #AmericanHeiress’ – is insisting on bringing champagne (and she has expensive taste) – so I thought it was high time I finally bought some champagne flutes.

I love shooting wide-open at f2.

    I love the photo AND the way you have the snow falling.
    Are these the ‘waited in for delivery for days’ glasses?

      Snow falling you can also activate on your blog (under settings).

      Yes, £1.49 from Homebase! They have a frosted stem. Also picked up 6x mulled wine (type, they’re actually for coffee) small thick glasses from House of Fraser which had a big pre-Christmas sale at the weekend.

      Hot mulled wine and ice-cold champagne seem like a big contrast!
