Santa incognito

By TrevBatWCC    
Directly opposite Verona's Duomo, shown in my previous upload, and behind where I shot the lead image of it, was this café with Santa out of his Christmas costume stood outside! In fact, you can see the Duomo reflected in the café’s door. He seemed quite happy to pose for me… 🎅

Many thanks to Colleen for her User Award on my previous upload Cattedrale di Santa Maria Matricolare , most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 👍

Two very cheering images! Both are superb but I think I'll go for the lead simply because it places the old boy in such an appealing context! SmileSmileSmile

How wonderful Trev, though Santa looks to need stronger bracers.

Yep, my first thought on seeing this, before I saw your title, was Santa goes undercover...

His red nose and face suggest that it would be wise for him to stay at home at present.!!!!!!
