Christmas Decor, on the Upper East Side

Upper East Side, NYC
Photo by myself on 80th Street and Madison Avenue, on the Upper East Side.

A very different street scene from the one posted yesterday. I was in this fancy schmancy neighborhood on Thursday afternoon.

A townhouse was done up with holiday decorations. There were large ornaments and nutcracker guards within the front garden area.

I probably should have taken this shot from further away, but there were cars parked along the street, that would have gotten in the way. My camera (the Leica) was also accidentally set to take square images. Oops!

The Leica has a neat feature which allows you to set different proportions for your image, so you can compose your shot better. With a simple twist of the lens barrel, you can change from a square image to 3:2, 4:3 or 16:9.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Wonderful. The Americans are world champions in holiday decorations. And what a contrast to your yesterday's post. It's the other side of the coin... Have a nice weekend.

Very nice picture, specially with the guy and the baby.

I love, love their Christmas decorations, Kitty! Quite fancy Nancy indeed or fancy schmancy!
