Busy Corner

5.30pm
The corner of Fifth Avenue and Central Park South.
You are looking South, at your right the Park and The Plaza Hotel
On the left the glass cube is the Apple store.
Looking straight is the UNICEF Snowflake
A 12 feet snowflake made of Baccarat Cristal hanging above 57th st
The Golden lit roof is the Crown Plaza.
In the background , the tip of the Empire State, lit green for Christmas.

17h30
Au coin de la 5eme Avenue et de l'Avenue longeant Central Park.
A droite le Parc et l'Hotel Plazza dont on voit la fontaine eclairée.
Sur la gauche, le magasin Apple et son cube de verre.
Tout droit,le flocon de l'UNICEF ,
fait de cristal Baccarat et accroché au dessus de la 57 eme rue.
La coupole dorée et eclairée appartient au Crowne Plazza.
Au fond,on aperçoit la pointe de l'Empire State ,
eclairée en vert et rouge pour Noel.

Today is Larchmont Daily Photo First Birthday!!

Lovely at dusk! The Baccarat Crystal looks somewhat like the Star on our Macy's store in Seattle.

J'aime beacoup la maison aux coeurs rouges. Que mettent-il comme déco pour la Saint Valentin ?

Joyeux anniversaire! Avoir toutes ces lumières qui brillent pour ton anniversaire, c'est quelque chose d'extraordinaire.

What a gorgeous view! You know, I've seen pictures of these places a million times but it's so personal, like getting a personal tour with you when I visit your blog!

Stunning! Amazing what you can see from this angle! Love this shot!

Comme disait Borhinger c'est beau une ville la nuit !!

En plus s'il était passé par là il aurait amené une bouteille de champagne pour fêter cette première année d'excellente facture !!

Je suis fan de tes photos !! Je vais monter un club

JM December 30, 2008 at 9:40 AM

beautiful!

alice December 30, 2008 at 5:01 PM  

Heureusement que je viens de te lire chez moi, sinon, j'aurais manqué cet anniversaire et je m'en serais voulu à mort! Je suis une mauvaise bloggueuse tous ces derniers jours mais par contre, je suis une bonne mère (du moins je l'espère!)...
Je t'embrasse sur les deux joues et je souhaite longue vie à ce blog qui fait partie de mes chouchous!

Olivier December 30, 2008 at 6:34 PM  

je reviens dans le monde de la blogosphere a temps pour te souhaiter un Happy Anniversaire pour les UN AN de ton blog, un plaisir pour mes yeux d'amoureux de NYC....Bonne continuité et continue a me faire rêver....Ta photo, me donne déjà un petit coup de nostalgie ;o))

and what a lovely celebratory picture to do so!!!!

Catherine December 31, 2008 at 3:28 AM  

Ce premier anniversaire nous laisse suffisament de souffle pour les nombreuses futures bougies que nous serons heureux de souffler en ta compagnie, Marie Noyale.
Show must go on.

Plutôt que Apple, je me souviens qu'un certain Fao Schwartz m'avait fait réver dans ce coin là.

Tash December 31, 2008 at 3:59 AM  

Congratulations on a year of splendid photographs. The crown is appropriate. :)
I only know The Plaza from "Eloise at the Plaza"...I enjoyed reading it to my son & hoped he wouldn't imitate her antics.

Peter December 31, 2008 at 5:19 AM  

Bravo for the one year! I did not follow you in the beginning, but I have had the pleasure to do it regularly later - once I "discovered" you!

Your pics from and around NYC make me dream - including this last one! Of course I love Paris - and so do you, I believe -, but there are other "dream cities" in the world and NYC is certainly one of them!

Really nice to have you among my blogger friends! All the best for you and your family for 2009!

I am so glad that we don't all like to live in the big city. It would be a nightmare for me. I like to look up and see the sky and to walk a few feet and be under trees in the shade.

My best friend lived in NYC and said he was amazed at how different his life was here in Ohio compared to his life in NYC. He was an engineer who went to City College.

I guess you have to love it like religion.

I hope 2009 will be better than 2008, 2007, and 2006. I do think our government will be inspired by our new President Obama -- at least I hope so.

I would like to see the War in Irag end and I would like to see the killing stop everywhere.

It is my hope that Japan will stop slaughtering whales and raping virgin forests.

And I hope the people will lose their clubs and no longer club baby seals to death.

What a world we have and live in. 2009 could be so much better than it will be.

Beautiful picture. I never tire of seeing such wonderful images of NYC. Have a great New Year.

Virginia December 31, 2008 at 11:54 AM  

Just a wonderful photo and tonight it will be full of revelers! Great getting to know you and hope to see you in the new year. Maybe I will make that trip to NYC that I keep talking about. Have a Bonne Année full of happiness and good health mon amie!

And yes BRAVO for your one year on CDPB!

JM December 31, 2008 at 1:14 PM  

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

babooshka December 31, 2008 at 2:12 PM  

More lights there than on island.

gogouci December 31, 2008 at 3:30 PM  

Love the angle and view. Happy Birthday and Happy New Year.

Squirrel January 1, 2009 at 10:28 AM  

Lovely shot, it doesn't look cold at all, but very inviting. Happy New Year & Blog B'day.

Cergie January 5, 2009 at 10:15 AM  

Le cadrage de cette photo en pyramide inversée est tout à fait original, j'aime beaucoup !
Longue vie à ton blog qui a la même date d'anniversaire que l'ami d'un de mes fils, le 30 décembre. C'est bien au début pour les allocs familiales mais on les perd aussi plus vite (mon troisième enfant est du 16 décembre).
Ceci est un raisonnement de français de la métropole !

Bhavesh Chhatbar January 14, 2009 at 6:34 AM  

It was a pleasure going through your blog. This post especially has a great photograph. Which camera and lens? Well, that's just an equipment. The important thing is your art.

Squirrel January 15, 2009 at 8:36 PM  

Hope the New Year is being good to you--I'm enjoying your archives today!

Il y a aussi..There is also...
