Coke for Christmas

I love this handpainted Coca-Cola ornament. It’s not an expensive Christopher Radko, but nice just the same. We don’t have a tree up yet, so I affixed it to a garland on the mantel.

I shot this with my “good” camera first, but wasn’t thrilled, so tried the iPhone. The photo is grainy, but I like the effect. It kind of goes along with the vintage handpainted look, don’t you think?

    Oh, yeah! I love the retro feel. Christmas always makes me think of the 40s-60s anyway. I think it’s because of all the retro Christmas carols. Very cool ornament.

    I had the same association right away. 40ies. I rather think of movies though. There are always such a lot of black and white movies on TV around Christmas. I am already looking forward to it. I watched such a wonderful one the other day, Brief Encounter (1945), a British film, maybe I will review it.

    It’s weird – the grainy did bother me at first and then I looked at it differently, like you said, as a vintage look and found that I did like it. It does fit. I would never have thought of shooting it that way.

    • In the old days of film, graininess was such a no-no. I avoided 1000 ISO film like the plague. Now I like the look, but only in certain instances. This was one of them.

      Hey, if it doesn’t work on one camera, I just try another one!

    Love that photo! I hear people say the iPhone takes such good photos that someday soon no one will have cameras at all. We’ll all just use our phones.
