The Santa Effect

I’ve been doing a lot volunteering in recent months at the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre. This weekend I was volunteering as a photographer for their Christmas event. Approximately 300 kids came through the doors to visit Santa who happened to be in town. It was such a pleasure to see the excitement and smiles on the kids’ faces. But for me, the best photos were the ones where old man Santa had an adverse effect on the little ones:

    Poor Santa looks more distressed than the children. Well-done for the volunteering, Christine. We must give in order to receive! Happy Christmas!
