Holidays Closing In

Goeffrey the Giraffe, originally uploaded by Chambo25.

Does it count to say that it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas when you see Geoffrey strolling the street outside Toys'R'Us in his red polo? Perhaps not exactly the most direct sign of Christmas, and possibly not even related... maybe he just wanders outside this New York toystore every Sunday afternoon. But he definitely caught my eye, and then I began to notice how most of the people reacting to him were adults, not kids, which is fine. The guy in this photo had just taken a few pictures of the Giraffe himself, and a different toystore employee offered to take his picture with Geoffrey. He had just refused and started to walk away when I snapped this photo.

Funny description of how mainly adults took notice of the giant human/animal.

In a way, the title "Holidays Closing In" could sound a little ominous if you look at Geoffrey sort of "closing in" on that guy. Geoffrey seems harmless, but... if you look at his face for a little more....
