Independence Celebration: US Military Academy at West Point, NY

West Point Concert

The Independence Weekend concert and fireworks at Trophy Point on the West Point campus. The US Army West Point band and singers performed. It was a fabulous evening with the Hudson River Valley as the backdrop. Great fireworks to end the evening.

The new Class of 2023 cadets, 1201 strong, marched in. They are in the white shirts in front of the stage. It was the end of their first week of training.

Color Your World 2018: 120 Days of Crayola – Navy Blue

Navy Blue Holiday Window

Lord & Taylor Window, December 2016, New York City

A 2016 Christmas window in Lord & Taylor’s Manhattan flagship store (for the moment). Lord & Taylor is the oldest department store in the United States, its first store opening in 1824 in New York City. In 1914, it moved into its Fifth Avenue store, which is well known for its Christmas windows. Declines in the department store retail sector and the rise of  internet shopping resulted in the 2017 sale of the Manhattan main store to a shared economy startup called WeWork. Lord & Taylor will lease about a quarter of the space for a store. The rest will be given over to shared working spaces for gig economy workers and bright young entrepreneurs who need lounges with bars, game tables, and fancy water in order to feel comfortable at work.
