Photo by myself at Macy's, at 34th Street in Midtown.
Mechanics were fixing the complicated moving Christmas displays at Macy's, Friday night.
For a moment, all systems were down in one window. Technicians wearing socks were troubleshooting the gears animating one puppet.
The windows at Macy's always draws an audience. One doesn't need to be a kid to ooh and aah at the intricate displays and graphics. This year's theme seemed to be about machinery and gears.
One of the windows involved video touch screens for children to design their own ornaments.
People tend to experience life through their cameras and camera phones. They don't look at the thing itself, rather, at the mini-version on their lcd screen.
