A Christmas Story-Creative Photography



During the day, in my neighborhood, ever since inflatable Christmas figures gained popularity, you will see Santa, Rudolf, or snowmen lying flat on the grass just like the one below.




But when evening comes all the Christmas lights are turned on and Santa rises, rises up (by means of a little electric fan inside), fat and cheery, for everyone to meet and greet in the night!



Hey Santa, Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday!



I added some noise (filter) to both my photographs for Creative Photography, Roger's well-known meme.

I do love them but they look so dead during the day. we always left ours running all the time. Just lik my tree it is lit all the time.

Jamie said...

Queen beat me to it. My first thought was that we needed to get a Sheriff or something to find out who shot Santa.

Have a wonderful week and a joyous celebration.

I think we had more of these at Halloween than now. I like seeing the day and night poses.

They look so sad when they're deflated, don't they?

LOVE this, Mary! I was going to do something similar because a neighbour has five or six flat creatures out on his snowy lawn today...but you beat me! ;-)

With a fan inside Santa, I hope he's not feeling too cold *lol*
A student of mine recently brought a Santa float to the pool :P

Merry Christmas to you and yours :)

Mary,
I'll have to get down there with my masking tape and do the lines around the bodies! Surreal and funny at the same time!

Roger said...

Aw what a sense of humor you have Mary thanks for sharing your awesome photos! And a Merry Christmas to you! :D

Gattina said...

Hahaha ! that's too funny ! We don't have a lot of garden decoration here. Only in the windows.

There was an injustice to the big man in the red suit!! find the culprit that is lurking in your 'hood!!!

Love this entry.

Sending you loads of holiday wishes and hoping for you and your loved ones to share in joy and happiness.
