Portrait of a Miniature Snowman

This is a photo I took on Christmas Day. I was walking down Canyon Road, scene of the famous Christmas Eve Farolito Walk, and all those small farolito bags were still out and about. I came to one with the cutest little snowman next to it, and so I composed this photo with the bag beside him.

A photo like this just seems classic for the day after the Farolito Walk in Santa Fe. Way to go, little man. (:

Shot with my 105mm macro lens at f/3.0.

  1. He is cute!

  2. Cute photo, Katie. 🙂

  3. This is really cute!

  4. It seems to welcome the sun with both arms, though the warmth will soon rise to its little head. But then it will become part of nature again, nothing is lost 🙂
    Beautiful contrast with the brown of the bag and the dark chocolate of the ground/wall. I love the touch of green of the twig.

  5. looks like he is fighting the sun rays- that will soon melt him away…

    hang in there, little guy!

  28. I wish he could last longer …poor thing melting! You “caught” it right on time! Also looks like a bird proudly looking up!

  31. sweet image and kind of sad. we woke up to -20 Celsius this morning, nothing is melting here!

  32. He’s like a little snowy meerkat! 🙂 Nice capture!

  33. How lovely and beautiful… You are one of my amazing photographers… Thank you dear Katie, Happy New Year, with my love, nia

  34. Cute little guy. Did someone make him or he just happened to be there by itself?

  35. Looks like you got even less snow than we did. Our snowgirl was at least twice as big. I assume the farolitos are normal sized lunch bags?

    • Yep, the bag is lunch size bag. The snow melted a few days before, and of course, they cleaned the sidewalks. Here in Santa Fe, at 7,000 feet, it’s sunny, so the sun cleans things off to. That’s why it was so sweet to see this little man.

      • I guess all I’m saying is that before your photo, our snowgirl, who herself would fit comfortably inside the farolito bag, was the smallest snow person I had ever seen… 🙂

        It is a really nice photo — I forgot to mention that before…

      • Ah, I love the small snow people, Zorgor. 🙂 Glad you liked the photo too. 🙂

  36. A cute snowman indeed, hopefully he held onto life for as long as he could!

  37. Now that is fabulous! I love the layers and the lighting, the subjects….this photo is full of fantastic!

  38. Aww,cute!

  39. One of my favourites here … You give opportunity to see lots of great photographs, Katie. Thanks!
