Holiday Warmth - Thematic Photography

Carmi's 'warmth' theme had me struggling at first until I realised the answer was right in front of me.

Christmas Hearth
I'm sorry there is no 'cricket on the hearth' but if you are cold you could go closer to really feel the warmth.

Beware if you get up to festive hanky-panky in front of the fire as your reflection may show up in the background just like the pattern on the rug.

I really wanted to show some photos taken under a Cypriot sun but I was told that I would be censored if the ladies of the house were included. (Well I think censored was the word they used.) So I settled for the 'he-man' look instead.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday and have a Happy New Year, not forgetting to visit Carmi at thematic-photographic-227

I have been at Cyprus twice and of course seen good Elvis imitations there.

Not fair to use a sunny picture on a cold winter's day. Now the fireplace, haven't lived with one for years, but they are always comforting.

A nice display of warmth.. and glowing .We have a gas insert in our downstairs fire place and sealed off the big one upstairs. We enjoy the look & warmth without the dirt, soot and work of firewood.

You just need some pets warming in front of that fire.
