R is for Rockefeller Center

No matter what, when you think of Rockefeller Center, whether you think of it in the middle of July with your sweat-stained feet are embedded in the melted tar of the city streets, or in the late springtime in the eastern Rockies, fly-fishing in a stream swollen with snowmelt, you're going to think Rockefeller Center at Christmastime, because face it: How else can you imagine it? What other season is so distinct in midtown Manhattan?

This is an old scan of an even older picture. The image is from December of 1986, and was shot on Agfa slide film, 1000 ISO. This was a fairly grainy slide film that I used on my first trip to London. The scan was done in late 2000 on a Crosfield drum scanner, the same machines I made color separations with back in the 1980's.
