Black-and-White Christmas Decorations

December 15, 2016 10 Comments

If you’ve kept up with my blog from the very beginning, you’ll know that this started out primarily as a black-and-white photography blog. I explain the reason why I chose black-and-white photography in detail on my Behind the Blog page, but basically, I love the look of older film photography, especially with older cities like Philadelphia (I love film photography so much that I have a pretty big collection of old photographs). I haven’t done a black-and-white photography post since August, so I thought that Christmas would be the perfect time to bring it back with a black-and-white Christmas decorations post!

If you’ve seen my many Christmas posts, you’ve seen how beautiful and magical Philadelphia is at Christmastime. I’ve seen a lot of beautiful, classy decorations and lights that give an old-fashioned Christmas feel to the city, and I feel like I’ve stepped back in time. I also did a black-and-white Christmas decorations post last year because I love how timeless Philadelphia looks this time of year. If you haven’t explored Philadelphia at Christmastime yet, you should definitely try to before the holiday season ends!

    Great post! Christmas decorations can be so garish because of all of the oversaturated colors, but these photos distill it down to its simple beauty – great job 🙂
    I’ve loved the look of black-and-white film photography since I saw a series of photos that my dad took (who wasn’t a photographer per se, but his dad owned a camera store). They were of a stunning ice storm that hit my home when I was a kid, and the photographs opened my eyes to photography at a very young age.

      Thank you! I did manage to get some black-and-white photos of some snow and ice we got last year, and I’m hoping I can get some more this year! 🙂

    I love black and white photography! Always adds crisp and drama to any photo! I used to take a lot with film until I couldn’t get my hands on b&w films in stores anymore if I don’t go on eBay. 🙁
