Christmas in Rittenhouse Park
Tuesday night was beautiful. A little rain, a lot of fog, and the perfect backdrop to take pictures in the park. Every year in December, the trees in Rittenhouse Park, now stripped of their colorful leaves, get decked out with a colorful assortment of gigantic Christmas balls. Some are the size of a fist, some the size of a basketball. I have always wanted to do a series of photos from the park when it’s like this… luckily the night was perfect. The photos do little to evoke Christmas cheer, but I think the mood they do evoke is powerful; cold and misty, a harbinger of the winter chill to come. Have a gander at Christmas in Rittenhouse Park.
