Into the 2nd week of January my local Shopping Mall had their Santa Display dismantled. This is one of the shots I got of a crew woman attending to one of the Reindeer.

It would've been a lot better if I was able to focus only on the woman and her reindeer but my camera has limited aperature ability.

Hope this provides some humour. Sad we're now into February, Christmas holidays well and truly over (we have long ones in the southern hemisphere). May all your New Year wishes and actions make true ...

Very Funny , very well seen and I love the look on the poor Deer and you wonder what the girl is doing to it. Just need to get rid of or tone out the white screen top right corner and you will have a great Humour shot may be the white cable on the floor.

You could name it 'Ohhhh her hands are cold!' and so many other funny titles.
Get shot.

yes, love the look too, but sure that look was about to melt ...

thanks for your comments you two.
Having led a sheltered life it took me a while to understand this one Nicola, only joking. Was thinking about all sorts of photographic composition permutations like should we see the legs of the front reindeer, should the background reindeer be cropped. Then realised its legs are crossed because it can see what is happening to the other one.
Well seen and taken.
