"City sidewalks, busy sidewalks,
Dressed in holiday style
In the air, there's a feeling of Christmas."

  I must have taken 50 pictures of my tree in various lighting conditions in the last week and I haven't like any of them, so I did what I normally do when I'm frustrated, I went window shopping.  Come along, I'll show you what I saw.

Of course, that little rabbit drew me into the store and look at what I found...I think I was supposed to be looking at the clothes, but they lost me to these wonderful decorations.

I walked down those city sidewalks and spotted this little gem of a window display...
this is a color photo, not a black and white!
(Okay, I did try on a few things here, but didn't purchase anything!
The display was almost effective.)

Still going strong down the sidewalk and around the corner to this...

Yes, I went inside to get this shot (and look around just a little bit too!).
I gathered my strength and went on and saw this beauty...

Now, I'm a traditional girl with Christmas colors, but I really liked this--for someone else.  With that being said, you can understand a heart palpitation at the sight of this tree...

I am still wondering why I can get such great pictures of every tree but my own, but the frustration might have been worth it--I got out and enjoyed someone else's hard work and came home with a song in my heart for the season!
Hope your heart is singing too.

Thanks for reading, or just looking.
I've got some more wonderful posts coming soon and I am so excited to share them with you.  Come back in a few days and enjoy some more wonderful sights of the season.


  1. Robin,
    I feel your pain about the picture dilemma, NC has been so overcast for weeks!
    But I love the window shots and the rabbit would have lured me in too. Thanks for sharing,

  2. Christmas tress are hard to shoot it's true. I love your window shopping pics. I miss going into town and looking at the Christmas windows. That's a thing of the past in my area. Thanks for sharing your trip.

  3. Gorgeous shops...where are they...loved all the beautiful things...the tree is gorgeous!

  4. I know your frustration, I have the hardest time taking pictures of the Christmas trees and decorations and getting them to look like I see them. As for my new camera, I received a Cannon Powershot SX50 HS. It was not a super expensive one as they can be. The one thing I made sure was that it did not work on regular batteries as my old one did, I went through so many batteries. I also liked the zoom. After I got my camera I was impressed with the wide angle pictures it took. Good luck and Happy New Year. Alaina
