every evening, mona and stroll by this neighborhood home, and admire it's chic and understated take on holiday lighting, so last night we tried to capture it on film- not so successfully, we might add! night time photography sans tripod & with the m21 instamatic (a teensy canon elph) is bit trickier then we'd like, so you'll have to use your imagination to photoshop things a bit:
the home has a fairly long, shallow, ranch style porch to which they've hung a row of 7 paper lanterns of different colors, sizes and shapes. each lantern has a colored bulb inside, corresponding to the color of the lantern, so the glow is a especially saturated and rich. no other decorations are on the porch, just the lanterns. simple, modern, inexpensive and chic- just the way we like our holiday decor!
