The #RockCenter Tree

I can't help but post a Google+ auto awesome tree photo from last year (I discovered Google+ auto awesome on Day 29 of 31 days of holiday windows -- last December's project).   You have to love a sparkling tree surrounded by sparkling angels.

Here is the photo without the bling:

This photo is so perfect (to me that is) that I'm not sure why I went back this year,  But go back I did (several times in fact).  The closest shot I got to the above was a day time shot and I took it quickly as a group was trying to get their photo perfectly composed.  This creates some restlessness among the crowd that is waiting for their turn -- the not having one's pose figured out that is.  It's always a bit of a scrum at the top of the plaza.

My favorite angel photo from this year  (last year's showed up on Day 24 so I am nothing if not consistent in timing).

The tree has a phalanx of Security guards to protect it and the area has a cadre of #NYPD officers who answer questions, direct traffic, and (most importantly) protect us from those who would do us harm.

This year's main event shot at the "almost" end of a lovely day spent with my niece Julia and good friends that included a play, a delicious dinner, and a couple of meandering walks through NYC.  Best time of the year.
