These ribbon flowers were something else! According to the tour guides they were done over many, many hours by Macy’s employees, no glue or tying involved.
Today’s installment includes a treat. As always if you just let things unfold the city rewards. Just as I was leaving Macy’s I had the good fortune to run into Oswaldo Gomez, Ms. Colombia. A mainstay at every colorful city celebration for years I have had the pleasure of photographing him before.
