Wednesday Walk-its starting to look like Christmas

Wednesday walk challenge and Steem Basic Income Give away

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Try to limit yourself to a set distance or time from the starting location, say 5 Blocks, 5 Minutes walk or whatever and see what you can find in that short distance

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all.

Following me and resteeming the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion, but you may have a better chance of receiving a Steem Basic Income Share if you do.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, resteem and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending @steembasicincomeshares to a selection of those who participate.

Its starting to look like Christmas

As I was on the train heading to Grand Central yesterday It came to me I had not taken any photos for a Wednesday Walk Post, then as I was walking out of the station it came to me what to get some shots of on my morning short walk before work

All photos in this post taken with my iPhone XS


This is the exit I take most mornings as I make my way out of Grand Central, and i noted, wellit is hard to miss that the tree was up in this open area, so I thought there may be more about and thats what I was looking for on my walk in the morning.


A closer in shot of the tree, they certainly covered every inch of the tree in this one, I know some like a completly full tree, I myself like it to be a little more subtle and the colors of the tree are clearly seen as well.


Still inside I looked across and noticed GOdiva chocolate store had also gone a bit festive with their decorations.


So I left the building and walked down the street and saw this tree in the entrance area of another building and popped into get a shot, the decorations on this tree were not so over the top and I preferred that as more of the tree itself was visible.


And in this building they also had a Menorah setup


And a last shot in this foyer area, to show the decorations all around, I thought it was very nicely done.


And now almost at the office I am in Dag Hammrskold Plaza again and they have there tree in the gazebo set up with just simple lights


And they also have a few of these wreaths along the plaza.

And here ends my walk for this week

Steem Basic Income give away

I mentioned in the guidelines that from this week I will be sponsoring a few who join the #wednesdaywalk challenge with shares on Steem Basic Income

What is Steem Basic Income you may ask well here is how they explain it

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content. so I have decided to randomly send some Steem to add shares for some of my followers so on the weekend I sponsored the following people
@redheadpei, @mo-nique, @minimining, @ellenripley, @sgbonus, @anitacarolina, @tali72, @rossfletcher, XXX all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk .

And a special bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @princessmewmew,

I would love to be able to give everyone who joins a Steem Basic Income share, but I don't make enough steem each week to do so, but I will try and share them around fairly between those that join the challenge

I hope a few of you may find this an interesting challenge and decide to join in.

Unless stated otherwise all photos used in my posts are taken and owned by myself, if you wish to use any of my images please contact me.

Here is my link !!

Wednesday Walk - The Elvis Bar By The Canal !!



YEs I dont mind so much the music and decorations and displays in shops after thanksgiving but before that it gets to muchthanks for joining again this week


Yeah i know what you mean it's not for everyone but i very much enjoy it over here it never gets boring :)

this year, especially early began to decorate for the holiday. I especially liked the illuminations on the columns in the empty foyer. why in the arbor hung wreaths?


These have all gone up in the last few days I think, I do love that foyer it is so beautifully done, Wreaths with reds and Christmas colors are quite popular here


I understand. thank. just in the country where I come from, people hang such wreaths if someone died at that place


YEs I know it does seem a strange contradiction to hang them at Christmas

Nice photos, my friend. It really starts to look a lot like Christmas. 🙂


Ohh yes indeed and more and more coming out each and every day

Oh, you really hit all my buttons today!!! I do love how they dress up the city, don't you?

You captured some pretty awesome shots on your stroll! I just scrolled through again and again. Oh, how beautiful the magic of Christmas is. Thank you for such a beautiful presentation!!

Here is mine. Pitiful! LOL But, it's all I got today!



You are always so sweet and kind, I thought you may like those shots after seeing your post for the walk :)

It is such a beautiful season as all the decorations come out on display

amazing your post friend,i really admire your work @tattoodjay


Thanks Kindly :)


thank welcome friend,visit my post @tattoodjay

Awesome seasonal shots, @tattoodjay! I agree - the second tree is much nicer. Less is more, so to speak. Although I think my favorite pictures is the Godiva window because, chocolate! 😂

Here's my offering for today, and thanks again for the #wednesdaywalk idea!


Thanks and I do love chocolate but can only have small portions I am allergic to it :) ooff to check out your walk :)


Yikes! I think that's even worse than me - I'm allergic to shellfish, and didn't discover it until long after I fell in love with fried clams, lobster, scallops... oh, and did I mention I grew up in a fishing town? Total ugh, but I'd take that over an allergy to chocolate! And thank you in return!


As a kid it was such a pain but now I am used to it have a little now and again and I am fine,

My Wife has an allergy to cheek fish as well I think that is more common

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. N.Y. is looking pretty. Thanks Jay for your generosity and support. 🤗


Yes indeed its perhaps my favorite time of the year in the city

Beautiful captures and fun challenge! Christmas is certainly in the air. :)


Thanks Kindly, and yes NYC does Christmas decorations so well
