Well, yes, I know it's not Thursday! Last Thursday Krista posed a Photo challenge for us over at the Create a Connection blog and I just got it done last night.

Her challenge was this:

"This photo Thursday, I wonder if you would take the flash off your camera, light some candles, and try to get a good shot of anything, under candlelight. Take a picture of your favourite books under candlelight, of yourself under candlelight, or even take a picture of the candles themselves."

I LOVE candles. I have tons all over the house. I don't light them often enough! I decided I wanted to take pictures of candles and a bubble bath. That's my tattooed foot sticking out of the tub! :) (I was a bit scared that I was going to drop my new camera in the bath, but I didn't!)


Now - another version of this photo is for the Self Portrait Challenge. As we are on the cusp of a new month, the new challenge has been posted. I have combined the January challenge of Resolutions with the February challenge of Black and White and here is my photo...



My resolution is to Pamper Myself more often. I deserve it and need it! Baths and candles are a good way to start! I didn't take this photo in Black and White, but it works pretty well! Although, you don't get the warm glow of the candle light - the reflections are pretty cool! A fun challenge for both sites!

Very cool tatoo!

I have too small a tub and too many distractions (like children knocking at the door)for a bubble bath, but someday I would like to have a big tub and take long baths by candlelight.

I like both photos!

Wonderful combo post Tammy! Good for you for taking such good care of yourself. Pampering? What a novel idea! LOL, I'm so bad at doing that. Thanks the inspiration.
