Smile, please!


While waiting to be seated at The Big Bowl restaurant at Rosedale Shopping Center, I wandered around, looking for interesting photo ops.  On the floor below me, I noticed these two beautifully dressed girls with the man of the hour, Santa Claus.  I laughed as I listened to and watched all the antics of the photographer who was trying to coax smiles from these girls.  No dice; they weren't having any part of it.  Lovely to look at, but decidedly stoic throughout the session.

The January theme for City Daily Photo bloggers is "Photo of the Year."

  1. It certainly is a mixed bag of reactions when kids meet Santa.

  2. They have reached the age of scepticism. "Cut that crap and bring the presents!"
    Have a very Merry Christmas!

  3. I think they look great, years from now they will be able to have a laugh with their own children about the picture.

  4. They look very pretty with their Scottish skirts and I think they look perfect without laughing, why should they?
