Just taking in the holiday sights on my commute home.

Happy Holidays everyone, this is another post which came about on my trip home, I could just have a blog about detours I take on my way home I guess. It was just so nice out tonight and Herald’s Square is right near my Path station home I could not resist getting a few shots in. Macy’s had a terrific display out this year and I am toying with the idea about doing a holiday themed painting out of one of these digital photos, tell me what you think. Anyhow I have to go do stuff now I just wanted to wish everyone a joyous holiday season, take care – Robert

    • I think I am going to go for it. I have never painted anything like that and it does look like it would be too difficult. I have been pushing myself a lot lately on the hard ones, I need a couple easier ones thrown into the mix. thanks for getting in touch, Stephen, good luck with that commission. – robert

  1. Thanks for the photos of Macy’s – felt like I was there – and the different angles and views enriched each photo – could feel the crowd – and nice job catching the flashing “believe” word – some day I hope to see the Macy’s for the holidays – but we hardly ever travel at Christmas and New Years – and so I really appreciated these pics. I also noticed a lot of blue in those displays – wonder if they do blue every year. hmmm well it you paint any (as you noted you could or may) well be sure to share the outcome – 🙂

    • they totally change the windows every year, which makes it fun for me since I walk by there all the time. It was such a beautiful night when I shot these, next year I will cover all the other stores on fifth avenue like Lord & Taylor, that was fun. nice to hear from you.
