I remember decorations like this downtown when I was little. (That is where everyone shopped because there were no malls.) I love the hanging street lamps above the garland. In the misty snow, this quaint street just shouts Merry Christmas to me!
Wrap lights around and turn the picture unfocused and it creates beautiful bokeh:) I do this a lot but just on Christmas trees. Also with a natural light in the back, wonderful contrast with the green dress. Just a great picture!
