Usually by this time, I have all the Christmas decorations up. But because we have to get some new wiring installed in the wall where the Christmas tree is meant to go, we have only put our Swedish Jul candles in our windows so far.
Tonight, Jacoby was sitting in the window next to the candles washing his face, and it looked so festive, I thought I’d take some Hipstamatic snaps just for fun.
Since I always take the Hipstamatic photos on the randomizer (you shake your phone and the app randomly selects the film and lens), there’s always a chance of getting black and white film…which is kind of a downer when you’re trying to get a festive holiday shot.
But sometimes, it really works.
Then there are the miraculous happy accidents betwixt film and lens. This one looks like the Northern Lights are shimmering in the night sky outside the window.
And in this shot, Jake looks like he’s in a snowglobe. Now that’s festive!
I love this one…not sure why, but I find it entrancing.
It’s rather magical, some of the things that you capture with Hipstamatic.
