Does My Bum Look Big In This

This was a shot that initially I was seriously unhappy with, but had an inkling that it might work in black and white… So after messing with a fair number of conversions I settled on this version, but still wasn’t truly happy, as the background (although required to balance the shot) was kinda distracting…. Hence the minor zoom blur….. Hopefully it worked…

Funny story though… After trudging around in the harbour for a while, and avoiding the muddiest parts…. we left the boats alone and ventured back along the sea wall for a coffee or two…. but were distracted by a childs screams…. When we looked back down in to the harbour (just behind this boat) there was a little kid laying face first in the stodgy mud…. covered head to toe in it…. with his mum there slowly peeling him out of the goo…. It was funny…. but we didn’t laugh…. much…. Well ok, maybe a tiny bit… but at least we didn’t point and laugh…. ;)

I’d NOT have wanted to be in that car during that journey home…. lol…

    HAHA, you were TOTALLY laughing. Soooo mean you are! You probably even tripped him and then darted away so no one saw. Oh wait, you’re a slug. Slug’s can’t dart. hmmmm…. hehe…Well, I’m loving this big bummed boat and the BW is sweet. I think you settled on a mighty fine conversion :)

    • Trip wires can come in very handy at times… and the ability to slime straight across the top of the mud laying them is also quite advantageous… NOT that I’d ever condone such an act…. ;)

    • If my memory serves me right, weren’t you the one that set the trap in the first place by throwing his favourite action figure out in the mud, so he had to go and retrieve it…. ;)
