17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Hazy Christmas Lights

I was trying to get a photo of my annual Christmas tree. When I pulled my phone back it would not focus and this photo is the creation. I thought the out of focus blur of the tree lights and the outside lights on bushes through the window looked "homey." It could be anyone's tree in any number of homes across America and even around the world.
