Christmas Reflections

This photo was taken in front of Zoë, a nouveau American restaurant on Prince Street between Broadway and Mercer. To catch as much light as possible, I set my camera on slow exposure and stabilized it on top of a car parked on the curb of the street. The reflection you see in the photo is from the roof of the car. I have never eaten at this restaurant before but I hear it is a really nice place.

So have you put up for Christmas decorations yet? Do you have a tree with lights and ornaments?

That is a great photo....love the reflection.

I've eaten at Zoe.....great place for weekend brunch, BUT it's popular and does draw a crowd.

Ming, this photo is fabulous! A total beauty. :)

A to your Q: no and no.

BTW, when are you going to start answering those questions? Huh? ;)

Rad photo!!

I have never been to said restaurant. Said restaurant is too fancy-schmancy for the likes of me!

I do go all-out over Christmas. Next weekend I'll get my tree and decorate it.

This is quite clever of you, Ming. I've seen reflections in lots of places but never before in a car roof.

There are no decorations in my house yet. I must wait till closer to the holiday.

Beautiful photo, MIng. I love white lights.

We have lights on our outside bushes, but nothing in the house yet. I'm not quite ready for that this early!

Didn't realize it was a reflection until you've pointed it out. Just saw it as the decoration. Very festive in any case.

I tried eating there once, but the lady on the phone actually hung up on me, so i never bothered.
