At a garden shop in Woodbury, Connecticut,USA.I was immediately struck by the absence of the color Red upon entering this room.

The whole town consists of approximately 250 fine antique stores, 4 white churches with picturesque steeples, and this store. Quintessential New England town for the most part.

Two notes of trivia regarding Woodbury-

"Album: Greatest HitsReleased: 1948.
Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson Songfacts.
Leroy Anderson wrote the music for this song during a heatwave in July of 1946, at his summer home in Woodbury, Connecticut where he was vacationing with his family."

Additionally, Rob Zombie, famous musician and filmmaker had a house in town, and was known to be disturbed by children skating at the skate park in earshot of his property. which is ironic, given he has been an annoying disturbance to many...

Very pretty, and a fascinating eye-trail through the display. Top 3.

Excellent exposure, composition, and sharpness, particularly within the constraints of minimal editing rules. Much for the eye to enjoy here.

Wow! Great shot. I'm always sorry for the people who have to pack it all away after Christmas...
