This post of the electric poinsettia is inspired by Leanne Cole Photography Playing With Light post. Thanks Leanne. I had the students work with the same method and it was a lot of fun. Bringing the light to the front helped the foil reflect the penlight.
The weekly challenge: illumination by Cheri Lucas is a great one for this time of year.

The effect on the poinsettia is stunning!
Thanks Naomi. It is fun to try something new.
Yes, that’s true. Especially when you get this kind of results.
Your photo of the grandchildren on the illuminated stairs is priceless.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thanks Francine. The other grandma keeps them all in matching pi’s.

These are all really pretty.
Great shots! Love the warm lights of Christmas.
Btw I need to check that Leanne’s post. That looks so fascinating. Thanks for sharing it 🙂
Great response to the challenge, Ruth. Loved the poinsettia and Francine was right. The pic of your Grandkids on the stairs is priceless.
very original the first one but the second one is my favourite, is so warm and “homy”… makes me feel kid once again… waiting for Santa!
thank you for sharing! 😉
Brilliant examples of illuminations!
These are beautiful. I like what you did with the poinsettias.
