On Display: Holiday Windows

Saks Fifth Avenue

I was out doing a little holiday shopping the other night after work, and I started to look around and notice all of the amazing window displays in Union Square. They are always pretty fabulous, but there is something about the windows during the holidays that is just that much more special. Maybe it’s the extra sparkle, maybe it’s the magic of the season…I decided to photograph a few that caught my eye to share with everyone. At first I was annoyed that I kept getting so many reflections in the pictures, but after looking at them I think that’s kind of the beauty of the shots. You get a real sense of being in the city, making the storefronts uniquely San Francisco.

Do you have favorite holiday window displays? If you live in or near San Francisco, it really puts one in the holiday spirit to walk around at night and look at all of the windows lit up, and stroll through Union Square to look at the tree and ice skaters. And of course, make a stop by the Macy’s SF SPCA window and ooh and awww at the adorable pets (you might find a new fur friend to adopt and bring home).
