Yeah, I know. ANOTHER flickr group. But weepin' Jesus on the cross, I am not really digging the fact that the weather in New Jersey, USA deserves its own ring of Hell in Dante's Inferno. The heat makes emotions run high and anxiety boil like a cracked egg on blacktop.
I thought to counteract the delirious effects of humidity stupidity, I'd do something that conjures up images of a cooler, more innocent time - replete with snow and icicles and sleigh rides and carols, and yes, sitting on some scary man's knees who's dressed in a fake beard and smelling of whisky.
So, if you ever had to suffer through the "Now come on and smile so we can use this as our Christmas card and send a copy to grandma" experience, with or without your siblings propped up on Ol' Saint Nick's lap with you, upload those scans and post them to my new group "Santa And Me".
Shots of you with your eyes closed or crying or trying to pull away in fear from Satan, uh, Santa score extra points (as does the big guy in red looking like he got a bottle of Jack in the sack for the holiday).
Join the festive fun...and Happy Holidays!
As a way of returning the extraordinary generosity and support you
have all shown me in this great community, whenever I upload a new
pic or series of shots this year, I'll provide a link to another flickr
photog whose work, personality, or spirit I feel you should discover.
Visit and introduce yourself. Make a friend. Share the love.
