Default Take... Take Me Home!

A quick shot during our day at Sea World.

Originally I ran past this games booth and shot the ducks on an angle. As I was chasing after the girls, I glanced down at the preview and thought . . . I should have tried that straight on. Later on in the day we happened to pass by the booth again so I snapped a couple of shots before chasing the girls again. LOL.

One of the few times I get a 2nd chance at trying something.

No, no, we have many of those stuff things around the house now. Nice shot, makes you think of all the game booths at traveling shows.

LOL . . . tell me about it. My youngest's bed is filled and she just came home with two more on the weekend. [It was not my money that got them for her! <grin>]

But then again . . . she was clutching them as she went to bed tonight. Put a smile on my face. Kinda the same smile I had on my face while I was taking this pict . . . LOL.

[I actually think I was shaking my head as I was taking it too! LOL.]

Actually . . . just thinking about it now . . . this might be a cool / challenging puzzle because all the ducks are the same colour. I might actually send this out to be printed as a puzzle and give it to the girls LOL.

What a completely evil idea! I love it. I have a friend who really likes challenging jigsaw puzzles, but I think I would prefer an icepick in my ear.

If your friend likes challenging jigsaw puzzles . . . there is those 1000+ piece puzzles that are all white (no picture). Now that is pure frustration in a box! <grin>

Then there is always the Wasjig puzzles too! But those are actually pretty fun!

Take care, happy shooting!

My dad manages an Apt. building, and the elderly women in the building do jigsaw puzzles all winter long. Last year they did a 50,000 piece 3D of the Eiffle Tower, complete with little lights that lit up. Took them from Nov to March to complete it.

Now that's cool. I didn't know they made 50,000 piece puzzles! Now that would be challenging! LOL.
