Fun with Fiber Optics

When I was digging around in the Halloween decorations I found a couple of fiber optic decorations. One is a pumpkin and the other is a girl scarecrow. I was going to leave them in the box but changed my mind and plugged them to see if they still worked. Later that night when I realized I had left them on I went downstairs with my camera to do some playing.

Since they kept me entertained for a while I suppose they can stay out to celebrate another Halloween.

beautiful fibre optics, wht do you normal use them for.

Halloween is not traditionally celebrated in New Zealand. It is slowly pickingup by the children.

Great shots, Ann! Getting good photos in low light can be tricky but you had no problem. Fun bokeh... don't ya just love saying that word :)

Grace said...

tahtimbo said...

Ooh, shiny objects!

Great pictures Ann. I love fiber optics. I had a Christmas tree with it once. Didn't have much luck with it. You can keep those out all the way past New Year.

Helen said...

These look great! I haven't seen one like that.

Out on the prairie said...

You're really going to town.So what do you dress as to pass out the candy. This is the longest I have made without already buying some, for me.Have survived on the candy corn and peanuts.

B Boys Mom said...

Yes you should keep them out! It looks like you had a lot of camera fun! Love it.

Donna said...

Aren't they Pretty!!!

catherine I did keep them out, haven't plugged them back in since I took the pictures but they are out :)

sandee I just love watching the colors change, kind of hypnotizes you

beaded tail it does have a magical look to it

miawa the decorations themselves look kind of stupid in day light but at night all lit up they are pretty cool

livintheblues I bet you could find something. make that bus a festive one :)

Ann they are just halloween decorations. The lights fade through different colors. look really neat

gayle, thanks

sharkbytes I wish my photos could make me look good...lol I always look horrible in pictures

LDH yes, low light is not my specialty but I was happy with these. Bokeh is a fun word, I like it

grace just the type of lights that are built in to the decorations. Very tiny little lights at the end of those fibers, they slowly transition from one color to another

tahtimbo well there staying for this year anyway

vanilla seven and to think soon they will probably be a thing of the past

anny yep , they're staying

fishhawk, I like shineys and sparkely's too :)

russ I don't think I have any Christmas decorations that are fiber optic

Helen I bought these a few years ago at the dollar store

out on the prairie last time I passed out candy I was a witch. I don't have a costume for this year though. Any suggestions?

b boys mom I always have fun with the camera

donna, they are in the dark anyway, in the daylight, not so much..lol

Lin said...

Oh, those are very cute! I don't have any light up decorations like that. :(

I finally succumbed and put the decorations up on Friday. We were having the colorguard over on Saturday and I figured it was then or never. I'm kinda wishing it was never because I hate putting it away, but the girls all loved the junk. Sigh. Bah humbug.

Kloggers/Polly said...

These are all beautiful and bright Ann. Lovely pictures.

Reeni said...

These are so cute! My camera takes crappy pictures in the dark.

Ann said...

Lin I hear ya, putting them away is the pitts

kloggers thanks, they are pretty cool when it's dark but a little on the ugly side when it's daylight :)

Reeni low light is kind of tough, a tri pod helps :)
