It’s Not This Time of Year Without…

Holiday Decorations and Parties

Show us the one thing without which your holiday season could never be complete.

Christmas Holiday Window Decorations

I’ve yet to get to Macy’s or Lord & Taylor this year but as soon as I do I will post their current Holiday Windows. Also located next to the New York Public Library 42nd Street is the Christmas Village Market where you can buy gifts for Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.
Here is a link to our Christmas Village Holiday Market Adventures of last year. Poor Stephen!  He’s always stuck posing for my crazy photos! Such an Awesome and Incredible Autism Guy!    https://goo.gl/photos/T6CqzTtvminKgaBq6
Here are some Christmas Holiday Decorations from stores along Madison Avenue.

 

 

Here are some photos from the December 2015 Holiday Season.

Then of course there are the Holiday Parties and other types of Holiday Decorations to be found around New York City.

The Wall at 14th Street Union Square

 

I don’t expect this blog post to get many Likes or even views but as a Black Woman Living in a racist sexist ageist country about to be taken over by the devil and his cohorts I cannot ignore what goes on around me and make believe Life is all sugar coated candy canes.

On 9/11 2001 we pulled together as one country, one people. We had a sense of nation and unity. On 11/9 2016 that was all shattered. Hopes for the future died. The rift, divide, chasm caused by the hateful words of one man, one male is who now preparing to be the “leader of the not so free world” has shattered all illusions of unity. He has dug from the filth swampy wastelands to stir up hatreds and vendettas that should have remained buried. Our county has now been thrown into an uncertain chaos which will affect everyone whether they care to admit it or not.

But then as my Dad Edward G. Palmer used to say when I was a girl, “I’m Free, Black and 21!”  So I express my opinion beholden to No One and never needing validation.

Let’s face it, when many white people look at me it’s like they just tasted something nasty and kept trying to spit it out of their mouths. Bring out your spittoons!!

Brutally Honest! No Apologies!!

The Wall @ 14th Street Union Square

The Wall at 14th Street Union Square Subway Station. I did not add my sentiments I only recorded the feelings and emotions of my fellow New Yorkers. As a photographer I’m also in the position of being a social activist. I do not live in an isolated bubble. I must record what goes on around me as did many other photographers who preceded me during the Harlem Renaissance, during the 1940s, 50s & 60s Civil Rights Movements, Disability Rights Movement, Women’s Rights plus the protests, marches and demonstrations of our Native American Sisters and brothers.
