  1. That gets me in the Christmas Spirit!! Lovely shots Deborah! 🙂

  2. Absolutely beautiful. Reminds me of NYC at Christmas time. So much fun going to see the tree at Rockefeller Center and all of the window decorations.

  3. I love seeing your photos with big style and flashy city stores! You captured the “glitz and shimmer” so beautifully, Deborah! I used to like when I was little seeing how the front window displays looked so magical and glittery.
    There was one year my parents took us to New York City, another to Boston. . . but mostly we would go downtown Cleveland and it always was exciting to see the designs and displays! 🚂 * 🐪 *🐧

    • I didn’t see fancy window displays until I was 10 when we moved to Silicon Valley. You were very lucky that your parents were able to travel while you were young and you saw such magical sights! Once I saw them I was smitten. 🙂

      • I will think about these memories and feel lucky from hearing you say this. Thank you, Deborah.
        My grandparents’ family lived in Rockport, Massachusetts so Boston was on our way there.
        New York City was a special treat. We received one small gift for that Christmas, nothing designated from 🎅 Santa that year. I’m glad you saw stores like this at least by age 10, Deborah. ❤

  4. I swoon at twinkly lights, sooo happy 🙂 Those are some charming and bright displays — exactly what I want to see in the city!

  5. When we lived in the Bay Area we loved to go to Union Square. FAO Swartz was still there and our little one went crazy. We would have a brunch at Neimans (love the raspberry butter and pop-overs)

  6. Gorgeous!!

  7. These really capture the season.

  8. Lovely shots, I particularly like the first one!

  9. Wow, Christmas is in full ‘bloom’!

    These are great nighttime shots. Are they handheld? If they are, I’m doubling in awe. All my attempts at nighttime photos are terrible.

    • It is! There are lights on quite a few houses in my neighborhood already too.

      Yes, I cranked up the ISO and shot these hand-held. I wasn’t planning to spend too much time here, and there was quite a crowd so, I didn’t use my tripod.

      With your new Sony camera you should be able to boost your ISO and shoot hand-held sans too much noise.

  10. I am so ‘mature’ I remember as a child going downtown the day after Thanksgiving to see the store window displays. Those were exciting times. These beautiful photos remind me of them. 🙂

    • Thank you so much for your comment Judy!
      I’m so glad the images reminded you of your childhood Christmas window displays.

  11. Great photos, Diana. Makes me want to shop… o_O
    😀 hugs!

    • 🙂 I’m doing my shopping online. It’s getting too crowded for me already in the shops.

      The lights and decorations are lovely to look at though.

      • Online is the only way to shop. 🙂 I never go to stores any more. Although it’s nice to imagine one that is somehow immune to the crowds and grumpiness.

    • Deborah… My fingers and my brain had a disconnect. Lovely post, Deborah. Hugs.

  12. These are beautiful, Deborah. I really like the building behind the tree in the second one.

  13. Wonderful!
