Every kind of Santa was at Santacon.
These Santas were keen to be looked at.
Besides a splendid time being had by all, the Santas helped the Fire Department collect a truck full of toys for needy kids.

On Saturday, thousands of people dressed in Santa costumes jammed into Union Square.
All kinds of people participated.
These fellows were singing a carol from the Simpsons: ‘Jingle Bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg, Batmobile lost a wheel, Joker got away’…
A splendid time was had by all.

People make the most interesting photographs. However, it’s impolite, and maybe even unethical, to photograph people without their permission.
Famous photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson and Walker Evans have no qualms about this sort of photography. Nor do serious photojournalists.
Legally speaking, people in public places have no reasonable expectation of privacy- it’s legal to photograph them.
Lots of local photographers, like Troy Holden and the folks at the All City photoblog, take pictures like this. I guess their blogs would be a lot less interesting without them.
So I have put them here. But still, in the back of my mind, there is just a little bit of uneasiness.
