Trouble at the Salon

Beryl was horrified to see that Sandra had maybe slightly overdone her first session at the new Tanning Salon in town…

  1. Oh dear…and here I was just worried about sun damage!! Lol

    Cute concept B. Great execution…err…umm…not that you meant to raisin your grape or…yeah…something like that. Snack anyone? :D

    • No thanks… I’ve just eaten… Mind you, extracting the arms and legs from ones teeth can be quite problematic… not that you’d have that problem… lol… ;)

  2. HA! That’s hilarious! And a good reminder to always apply generous amounts of sunblock to your grapes (or… something like that).
    I always LOVED Legos… hands down my all-time favorite toy! :)

    • Thanks SIG… Yup, you can never be too careful with your grapes… ummm… or maybe I should rephrase that… lol… I loved Lego too as a kid, and still get to play with it now.. :)

    • HAHA.. Well that doesn’t happen too often I bet… ;) You’re not tempted to hit the local tanning salons then… lol…

  4. Ha! I keep telling my daughter this is going to happen! Totally creative and great for a chuckle, Brian! Thank you. :)

    • Well let’s hope it’s not quite this bad… lol… You’d not want someone mistakenly mixing her with your breakfast cereal… ;)

  5. LOL LOL LOL! Perhaps Sandra could go on to have a career with these guys:

    May 30, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    • Hahaha… Well unfortunately her budding career was cut horrifyingly short when…. well… let’s just say the sunbed did wonders for her consumability… and Beryl didn’t fare to well either… ;)

  6. bahahahaha! Very Far Side-esque :)

    May 30, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    • Haha.. You could be right there… Thanks Eden…

  7. LOL Love this! I do hope this will somehow turn into a Lego series.
    Poor Sandra, though ;-)

    May 30, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    • Well maybe not a Lego series, but I suspect there might be a series of sorts in this.. Thanks Michaela.. :)

  8. Hilarious! I should show this picture to my boyfriend is a fan of tanning salon. Yeah! He likes to keep his tan … I love the concept!

    Is this the beginning of a series? I can’t wait to see more. ;)

    May 31, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    • Haha… Yes maybe you should… or just buy him a bottle or two of fake tan instead… You’ll be pleased to know that I do intend making a little series of these… Thanks Anne… :)

  9. I’m embarrassed to admit this, but it took me a few seconds (more like 20 seconds) to get this photo. But…once i did, i laughed out loud! love it!! By the way, you may want to check out my blog today…you are the featured artist for today’s Flickr Pick (May 31, 2011). I had to give a shout out to my HDR idol. :)

    May 31, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    • Lol.. Well I’m glad you got it eventually… Thank you SO much for your feature today too… That’s quite the compliment, and wholly undeserved I’m sure… but thanks… :)

      May 31, 2011 at 5:49 pm

  10. I love it!! :D

    May 31, 2011 at 2:19 pm

    Love it! I’ve seen a few like Sandra walking around town here in the summer months. :)

    May 31, 2011 at 2:41 pm

    • Well that’s it… I’m moving.. lol… as there’s no way it’s warm enough in this part of the UK to produce such results… Mind you, I’m not too sure I want to end up looking like a dried up and wrinkled old grape just yet… ;)

      May 31, 2011 at 5:51 pm

  12. LOL! Hilarious Brian!!!

  14. hey Brian. I think this is an interesting idea. Very creative! You put a lot though on your photos. I do not like tanning and tanning salons in general, but this one really made me to go to some sunny place and get tanned naturally :D

    June 1, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    • Thanks so much Irina.. I’m so pleased you appreciate the time I put in to each shot… :D
      As for the tanning, if I end up looking like a raisin, then I’d rather avoid it completely.. lol..

      June 1, 2011 at 11:24 pm

  15. That’s so funny…I love it. Really made me smile, thank you :)

    Oh Brian, I hadn’t spotted this til just now…. clever guy putting a link to it as a ‘hidden’ post… hmmm… I love this! Hee! :D

    June 17, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    • Lol… It wasn’t actually hidden, I just moved it further down the front page, as it didn’t look right at the top… Thanks Val… :)
