Last night I was braving the effects of what the news called a “Squall” to secure my annual Holiday Tree visuals and as expected, a part of this adventure is to stop and enjoy the holiday lightshow that gets put on by the famous Saks Fifth Avenue store. This years show was called “Greatness Is Everywhere” which connects to the “Frozen II” film I am told. Since I didn’t see the picture I will have to trust what I’ve read. It’s only about three minutes in length so sit down, relax and enjoy and consider giving the channel a little love by clicking “Subscribe”.
Production Notes: This year I secured the clip via my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and didn’t use a conventional camera at all. Heck, I didn’t even snap photos of the trees with one and instead opted to be phone only for a change. Considering the brief bit of snow that we had, I preferred the device getting wet to be my encased mobile device more than a traditional digital camera. Though we still have a few days before the Christmas Holidays, I want to wish you and yours a very “Merry Christmas”. Be kind to one another.
It’s that time of the year again and it means presenting some of the awesome Christmas In NYC sights that I find while on my normal adventuring. Once again I was starting my night out with dear friends in honor of the holiday season and as I did last year I began my quest for some of the trees that were set up in the general vicinity. You’ll see those soon enough but now its time to enjoy the Saks Fifth Avenue facade presentation. For those just joining the website and in the unaware, this is an annual light show that is shot onto the Fifth Avenue facade of the famous department store. I had gotten here just in time and used my point and shoot Samsung to secure the visual. It’s only a few minutes long so please sit back and relax while the clip and music plays through.
As usual I hope that you have enjoyed this seasonal capture. With this years clip, I felt I was just a little too close to the street and that made my visual a little too tight for my liking. Last year I had wanted to be in or around this spot but still think that my little Samsung was too close. Please stay tuned for some additional Holiday fun for the season as my Christmas In NYC posts continue.
I was out with friends last week and after the holiday fun, went on some adventuring to finish my Christmas Tree hunting and to see if I could snag the always impressive display by Sak’s Fifth Avenue. Luckily, just as I had hit the corner the next presentation was set to begin so I shot from where I stood with the trusty Samsung point and shoot.
I hope that you liked it, I think next time I am going to try and get this a little more in the center of the area since some part of this were hard to see. Stay tuned for some additional Holiday fun for the season as my Christmas In NYC posts continue.
I was out with friends just the night before and after our gather I felt that finishing up what I was referring to as my “Christmas Tree Hunt” explorations would be a great idea. I still needed the Rockefeller Center and Bloomberg Building ones and while heading down to one of my mapped out locations I noticed the windows at Saks Fifth Avenue and since it was late enough to not have a large crowd filtering past, I snapped some images for you all to enjoy. The display was called “Land Of 1000 Delights” and I’ll let you peruse.
In addition to my now yearly Christmas in NYC presentations with the trees and the decorations that I see around, I stopped by the famous Sak’s Fifth Avenue Department store. They now have a whole big light display on the facade of the building on the side that overlooks Fifth Avenue. Its quite awesome and drivers might want to avoid this avenue during this time of the year to keep on moving. It’s such a pleasant offering that it is getting its own post when I manage to snare the complete show.
In case you are curious, I shot this video with the Panasonic Lumix. Yeah I am still using a real camera out there instead of solely using the mobile device. I dunno, for some things I prefer the camera to the phone. Maybe in a future year. Only time will tell. There is more to come from the 2013 Holidays so please stay tuned and thank you for spending a little time here on the Chronicles of PiercingKen, I’ve aimed to make this an interesting place for you with a wide variety of topics.
