Reflecting Black Friday

Amoeba and I prefer not to go anywhere near a maul mall during the Christmas Shopping season.  Given our druthers, neither of us would have left the house today, but the Honolulu Community Concert band was playing for the kick-off of the official Kahala Mall season.

I figured as long as I had to be there, I might as well scope out a couple of reflections.

Please be sure to BIGGIE for best effect.
