Photo Details

  • Title: Merry Christmas
  • State/Province/Region (required): Ohio
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Town: Toledo
  • Description: Santa greeting children at a Boys & Girls Club party.
  • Brief Directions: Standard 28-135mm lens with flash.
  • Notes: I attended a Christmas party for the Boys & Girls Clubs. Of course Santa was there. I kept my eye on one particular girl who seemed cautiously excited when she spotted Santa walking toward her and her friends. I readied my lens for her expressions, but Santa kept getting in the way as he approached the group. Then he bent down. This particular girl rushed at him with her tiny arms barely making it over his broad, satin shoulders. It was the dichotomy on many levels that makes me admire this photo over and over again. Her tiny hands on his big back. White beard against black skin. The promise of the season embracing the reality of her life. And the ghostly glance of the young girl in the shadows taking it all in.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Gear: Cannon EOS 40D
