"Ring Those Bells", 81 & 82/365


Christmas bells symbolize the ringing out to "lost sheep" to bring them back to the fold, signifying that all are precious in His eyes. They also proclaim the birth of Jesus in the manger and proclaim divine love and protection.  I guess they also frighten away evil spirits, just like the light that reflects off of the glass ornaments that hang from our tree.  These black & white photos are for Black & White Wednesday - click HERE to see more entries.

Satakiell, Justine & Rosie - It amazes me how things can look SO different in b&w. Just a whole other "mood" and feel to the object. This was just ok in color.
