To me this image embodies the idea of welcoming family and friends to share the Christmas holiday. I captured this in the Naples section of Long Beach, when I walked along many of the canals to enjoy the holiday decorations. I thought the understated, old-fashioned elegance of this decorated entryway seemed especially welcoming.
