1000 Foot Tree – Winner!

1000 Foot Tree Winner of Christmas Tree Competition at Lights in the Heights 2014

In December my family and I won a competition to decorate a Christmas Tree for a Christmas extravaganza at out church. It was for an annual event, Lights in the Heights, that saw nearly 10,000 come through and visit our church in Hepburn Heights. The fun lasts for over a week and has all the fun activities like Christmas Tree Wonderland, Santa’s workshop, Family Funville, Christmas movie, Photo-booths and a laser light display.

For our winning entry, I took photos of individual feet from all the people in our church. On any Sunday there around 250 – 500 people. It took two Sundays to get enough photos. We then cut out each foot photo and then decorated our tree. Hence, the 1000 foot tree!

A few things were learnt form doing this exercise…

1. No one wears the same shoes as anyone else…
2. Some people are very embarrassed by their feet…
3. You can easily spot your own feet and the feet of people you know …
4. I now recognise more people in my church from, you guessed it! From their… smiles!
