Another Rockefeller Christmas Tree Shot

Another Rockefeller Christmas Tree Shot

I noticed the compression and Blogger washed out the colors of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree that were previously posted so I wanted to post another picture that showed a little of the color of the lights (still doesn't show much, argh). Just to keep real and to follow along with the title of this blog Digital Flower Pictures dot com I am posting this picture of some cut Mums I saw at the Union Square Christmas Market. These were actually from the Greenmarket, which is what we call here a farmer’s market. It is always fun to see all the interesting stuff they sell at the NYC farmer’s markets. I think if I lived in Manhattan I would do a lot of my shopping there. The Mums were $5.50 a bunch with the tax included. They really had an interesting selection of wreaths but the 50mm lens just wasn't capturing them.

This final picture is of a beautiful child I saw riding a float in a Christmas Parade that I stumbled upon in Chinatown. It was an interesting parade because it had a combination of Little Italy and Chinese themed floats. There were a couple of marching bands and the Boy Scouts in between the floats. I wished I got the picture of when this girl waved at me, it was heart warming but it just came out a little blurry.

I spent most of this morning getting the trucks and car unfrozen and chipping the ice of the sidewalk. We only got a couple of inches of snow, a lot of freezing drizzle and some rain. I am not complaining because it wasn’t as bad as predicted. I don’t like ice storms because of the damage they do in the garden especially to the evergreens. I am bored already and winter doesn’t start until Friday!

That's a magnificent photo. Really shows the tree in all its splendor. NY Nitty Gritty had one from the ice up. Between you, I've got the whole thing and some wonderful perspectives. I feel like I'm there.

Thanks for some lovely shots.
