Santa in NY/ SOOC

Santa being protected by two soldiers

Santa can never be too careful it appears. Here he is flanked by two well-dressed soldiers last Thursday on the southern shore of Lake Ontario in New York State. (My husband and I were visiting with U.S. family for a few days.) I think Santa was there for turkey as it was U.S. Thanksgiving. He does look a tad slim there so I imagine he also was hungry for all the fixings as well!

This is a sweet photo, but funny with the "Do not touch" sign. He is looking a little on the skinny side.

The "soldiers" looks like they have just arrived from Tivoli in Copenhagen, and are two guys from the Tivoli band....

Looks nice!:)

You're right, this Santa is unusually skinny.

They need to fatten that Santa up don't they?

A most unusual presentation of Santa! Instantly I thought of Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite" with Dance of the Toy Soldiers! Great photo!

After the Turkeys... it's Santa's time to take the center stage.

He must be an antique Santa or something...he is the skinnest Santa I have ever seen. Very interesting with the soldiers guarding him. Great shot!

Francisca said...

That's a little surreal, these nutcracker soldiers guarding Santa... sign of the fearful times?

You see, the world is becoming a more dangerous place...
God bless you!

HO HO HO!!!

Hope you had a great time with friends in US. I think that was one of Santa's helpers as HE is much too busy for traveling this time of year. . . Ü

George said...

Perhaps the soldiers need to protect Santa from the touchers referred to in the sign.

Jacob said...

That poor Santa...he's missed too many Thanksgivings...absolutely scrawny. But what is he doing in that gazebo on the lakeshore? And why does he need to be guarded?

So many questions, so little time. Soon it will be Christmas and too late!
