Post your outtakes from the For Sale challenge here.

Yes, I know, the white balance was off and there was no price tag on my For Sale entry - I actually did correct the white balance some, but liked the yellow glow, as that was indeed the lighting at the time. But that's neither here nor there! What's more important is there's a whole story behind the entry. And therefore, outtakes!!

You see, at Christmas time in Germany, cities everywhere have Christmas markets, where vendors, like this one, set up booths and sell all sorts of stuff.

People come from far and wide and wander the city streets, visiting booths and stores, and are entertained by street performers:

It's a lovely time, and the villages are all lit up and peaceful...

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30982/thumb/440318.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30982/thumb/440318.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

But... there's this guy, who may or may not be related to Art/Ken, who weilds an ax...

But Miss Emma, giant guardian cat from above ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30982/thumb/437343.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30982/thumb/437343.jpg', '/') + 1) . ', tells him to behave "or else", and besides, beer is good! And all is well, the villages are safe, the choir sings, and the merriment continues...

Happy holidays!!

It was in the name "wheel line wheel"' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/598/thumb/437979.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/598/thumb/437979.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I've always wondered what that meant... and oddly enough, it seems to fit quite nicely!

I thought all my pictures were boring and I was dissapointed in them
(see "For Sale" - How to approach people? ). It scored higher than I thought it would, but maybe the following would have scored better?
