This charming holiday video reminded me to walk up from Rockefeller Center to 57th during last weekend’s stay in NYC. My mission, to see the windows at Bergdorf Goodman. Glimpses of them appear in the video, but there is nothing like viewing the windows in person and lingering over the texture, sparkle and color. We arrived mid Saturday morning and there was a terrific glare of the skyline reflecting off the glass. From Fifth Avenue I could only capture shots in the lower portion of the window, but you’ll easily see why I fell in love with these stunning creations.

This year’s theme is the Carnival of the Animals which always makes me think of Saint Saens The Swan. It is a luxurious and relaxing piece, especially welcome the week before Christmas.
