Where is the best place to hang mistletoe at Christmas? Most people would say the front doorway. I say the doorway to the kitchen, because we all know what kind of workout that place gets at this time to year!
Last year was meant to be our first Christmas together but due to previous arrangements before we met, we weren’t together on the 25th so we made the best of a bad situation and had Christmas early! There was snow on the ground and the chicken (there was only the two of us so a turkey would have just gone to waste) in the oven. We opened presents and watched the Charlie Brown Christmas Special.
We all know how many times people walk into and out of the kitchen at this time of year, so when we were decorating at the beginning of December I decided to hang the mistletoe there above the doorway. It also seemed like a good idea, as during the Canadian winter, all you usually you want to do when you’re walking in the front door is strip off your cold and wet clothes.
I’m sure a lot of people can relate to being away from loved ones at Christmas and making the best of the situation they are in. This was another one of the years of doing exactly that for me and I’ll always remember it as being one of the best (early) Christmases I’ve had.

Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!

In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
