This week there is a free topic in The Real LJ Idol competition (therealljidol), where contestants (and others) are invited to write on one of the following topics: "Joy," "Holiday," or "Irish Revisionist History." There is no voting this week, but I invite you to read this week's entries, which can found here. I've chosen to address the topic "holiday."
When I visited New York City two weekends ago, I wasn't able to get close enough to the windows at Macy's to photograph them. Not so in Philadelphia, where I shot these images just after Thanksgiving, shortly after the windows debuted.
