Old Saint Nicolas...


My favorite Santa is my Paper and card board Saint Nicolas, that is about 18 years old. Each year I take pics of his face, but this year I used the mono pod and finally got his beautiful face in a clear shot.


..
What do you call Saint Nick after he comes down the chimney?
Cinder Clause

He lives on the breakfast bar for the season, but I sat him in front of the mirror to drape the lights to reflect on him.

Old Saint Nicolas has an amazing face. I can see a twinkle in his eyes. I really like the effect you got by placing him in front of the mirror.

He is a great looking St. Nicholas. He's got a great face. From looking at him you would never guess he was paper and cardboard.

He does have the most beautiful eyes. I can't believe that is 18 years old.
