Rockin around the Christmas tree with the Fuji X series

Well its officially that time of year. The time of year we spend money we don’t have on things we don’t need, all in the name of consumerism. Oh wait, that’s not it. It’s the Christmas season, and around here we kick it off by decorating the family tree. No, its not real. I just can’t be bothered with a real tree. Wit two young boys and a third on the way, its the boxed variety for us. Tens minutes of set up (thanks to my wife) and its time to decorate. We let the kids run the show with the decoration planning for the most part. We only chime in and assist when they can’t reach (which in all honesty is more than half the tree). All in all it makes for a fun night.

All photos here were shot with the Fuji x-pro1 and 23/1.4 lens, or the Fuji x100s. Processed in LR5, using VSCO pre-sets to save time.
