    Sinterwho? Sinterklaas. Thats a guy who is somewhat similar to Santa Claus. He comes from Spain on a boat, instead of the northpole on a sled. And he does give away presents, which are also put down the chimney. And he got helpers. But instead of elves, he got guys who are black from climbing down the chimney. He rides 1 horse, a white one called Americo. So he doesnt have a buttload of deers. And so on, and so on.
    Anyways, he was coming to town last week and the family and me went there to see him. Is always a nice day, when Sinterklaas comes to town. All the kids are happy and smiling. And here are some pics.

    Nice set of pictures doenoe!
    We have the "Kleesschen" here, but I think it's the same guy as your Sinterklaas ;-) I think he a route that went through different countries (Saint Nicolas really existed in fact)
    Anyway, we will be celebrating the 6. of december with the kids of our family :)

    Yes, this is digital. I converted the pics in PS using the action Wally made. You can find it HERE I think there is some sort of manual in the zipfile too. It works great. You can use it for B&W and sepia. Hope this helps
