Son was home... but was leaving in "just a minute".

"I only NEED a minute, maybe less...", said I.

Six shots. Almost exactly a minute.


Even if it bombs on the score, I won. :D

So... I gave him all of the cash in my purse for gas money. $4.00

Win again! :D

I love this image in the thumbnail version. It's "cartoony". Reminds me of a video game shot. But, I know that doesn't sell here in DPCland.

Still, I like it.

I hope it gets me a 6. That's worth $4.00 to me.


Oh! The "safari" part? That's to do with our dog in the breezeway. See him? He's a sweetheart.

I like this image, it works really well as a square crop - and I like the added interest of the views in the glass.

Works very well for the square crop. The reflections take this up a step and adds to the curiosity. I would lose the border - better to let the mind wander.

Funny how you can see the reflection of the photographer in one reflection, but not the other. Overall I like this capture and the gritty feel of it.
