Dear Santa

By Mynett
Gosh it has been -19 in Shropshire and even with the heat on it is cold indoors...... Sad

so I have had a play on elements and this montage is from some images taken at the Black Country Museum of one of the Gents acting on the day we were there (Lesley and Tony) (Cassiecat and Bromley - Smith)- The actors tell some great stories in the deep black country accent - this gentleman had so many stories and some great facial expressions....

this little montage seems to tell a story

'Dear Santa .... well maybe

This is just excellent, Linda: what a character he must have been and you have captured his mannerisms and expressions so well. But then to be able to carry on and composed this montage in such an artistic and clever admiration knows no bounds. A superb bit of work in every way.

Initially, superb piece of work. I like the editing. Reminded me of OnOne photoframe plugin. And indeed, the facial expressions are great. -19, God that is freezing cold for sure. I wonder when we will have +19 here in Dubai. Let -19 for now... I always dreamed of walking in +9 outdoor. That for me is like 1 Kelvin... May God help you and may your family's warmth help you to get along through this long winter.

Just a thought Linda have you got Santa's address as I've been a good boy and there are one or two things that i thought I might ask him for?

What a wonderful creation, Linda, and really made me chuckle, just what we need in this cold weather, it's -12C here at the moment, quite warm compared to your -19C!
Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and thanks for your continued support throughout the year, it really is appreciated Smile
