For December I upload images to do with the festive season. This is going to be many different things as you can see...
I had to dig deep for that one, in every sense, it was a very special, moving and private moment.
We had a photo gallery and it was shortly before Christmas.
I was doing the window dressing, and had decided, since Christmas is greatly connected with children to use that as a theme.
I bought one of the electrical Santas holding a candle, moving his head, with a very kind and jolly face, totally new then, a huge success, kids kept dragging their parents to see it.
It was in the morning, cold and drift-snow flying, nobody in the streets yet, although the angels were already singing the carols over the tannoys.
Santa was doing his thing, I was giving the framed images a last wipe, when I heard a gentle thump and I looked up to see this sweet tender moment.
This elderly gent stood there, looking with the joy of a child in his eyes.
I grabbed my camera from the chair, I saw I had one shot on a grainy 400 iso film left to take this one off image, no time to check anything as I did not know how long he was going to brave the elements, turned out he gazed for quite some time. Then he nodded at me, a smile and he was gone, a very emotional moment!
Always keep the child in a small corner of your heart, never let go of that wonderful feeling...
