Merry Christmas (Weekend Reflections # 66)

Even with all the pictures that I took in New York last weekend it was hard to find one that had reflections and a Christmas theme. This is a giant wreath on the Waldorf Astoria hotel and the Christmas decorations have buildings people and yellow taxis reflected in them. I didn't count them but this might be a record for the most reflections that I've posted at once.
I'll be posting the rest of the NYC photos as well as my photos of Europe at on my other blog. One of my New Years goals is to keep this blog more true to it's name. :)

3)Be sure that your link goes directly to your Weekend Reflections post.
4)Link Weekend Reflections to your post so other will know where to go if they want to join
5)Comment on other Weekend Reflections participant’s blogs.
Feel free to be creative.Remember this meme is for any type of reflection photographs.This meme runs Friday 11 am EST through 11pm Sunday, so feel free to link your post anytime within that time frame. Join the fun!

I think you're right, James... it's going to be hard to beat this for the number of reflections! That's a lot of YOUs and Vickis(?)! As usual, you found an artsy spot to photograph. Nice browns on brown.

All the best of the season to you and yours!

Now that's what I call a wreath. I remember lots of pretty Christmas displays when I lived in NY. I always took the children to Rockefeller Center and they loved the store windows.

Alexa said...

I recognized it immediately! That may be a record for number of reflections all together. Super!

James, this is a large quantity of reflections and all so very sparkling! My sister and I took our mom and dad there for New Year's several years ago and I remember the incredible ornate tree in the lobby.

Wishing you a very joyous Christmas, James. Many thanks for the world you have opened to me and others with your "reflections"

Bisous,
Genie

JM said...

Super shot, James! Well spotted.
Hope you have had a wonderful holiday.

roentarre said...

This one has so much mood embedded in it!

Owen said...

Well, I'm not going to try to count them either, but that's a lot of reflections, for sure, though tiny, it's hard to count the taxis in them...

Hope you had a fine time in New York, and the happiest of holidays in general... Perhaps while I'm here now I should wish you an excellent 2011 as well, full of travel and photos and boisterous blogging time !
