Some Photos from SantaCon San Francisco 2015

San Francisco was awash with the red and white colors of another SantaCon last weekend.   A temptation to an amateur photographer like myself knowing this event attracts crowds of exuberant San Fran characters.   So I made a quick trip to Union Square and snapped a few pics.   I apologize for the glare of reds and whites, bright greens and glittery stuff…. but, after all, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.   Santa Con is San Francisco’s weird little Christmas thing the last few years, but when there’s so many Santa’s running about, even the reindeer are confused!

More info on SantaCon’s History: wikipedia on SantaCon.

Anyway, here’s some of my SantaCon snaps:

That’s it! Those are the most family-friendly ones – but it’s amazing how San Francisco is also home to some of the most exhibitionistic Santa’s ever imagined. For instance, just because you own bright red undies doesn’t mean you look like Santa when that is all you are wearing… 😉
