Santa Claus

Perhaps I should say, second in a series?  Here he is from last year.

A number of years ago we were in Germany and bought these hand painted pewter figures.  They are a favorite Christmas decoration of mine.

This was shot with my Canon DSLR, but with a lens adapted from my old Pentax Spotmatic that I bought when in high school.  It is a Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 50mm f1.4, a wonderful sharp lens.  Of course it is manual focus on the DSLR but still produces very nice photos even though it is over 40 years old.
