Windows onto Another World, at Macy's

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.

I think Americans are very good at all of entertainment. You really know about what people can enjoy and of course skills for them as well.
That's why I like your country, especially your NY!

I always love the Christmas shop-windows. They are so such joy to look at, indeed not only for the children.

I still shoot with the little window on my camera...it was a must to have one that had that on it. The windows should be great this year, very excited!!
