The Holly and the Ivy (reprise)

A year ago I shared this photo for Exhibit A’s Christmas meme. I love its cold wintry feel and it always makes me feel a little shivery when I look at it. Exhibit A’s reopened the Christmas prompt so I thought I’d do a different version this year and create an image with a warm and cosy feel. So, for Sinful Sunday and the Christmas prompt, here is The Holly and the Ivy (reprise). 

Sinful Sunday

    This is absolutely glorious. I love how the edit makes it look like an older photo, and a classically beautiful one at that.

    Beautiful and ethereal – almost as if you could have found this in the attic of a Victorian mansion…

    Very vintage feel, which I love. Perfect positioning! Just Lovely!!

  16. Mr. Minx

    Soft, warm, sexy, and a touch of artisanal mastery made your reprisal so perfect all around!

    I love the soft tones and way you are almost lost in the background. Beautiful photography

    This belongs in an art gallery!
