I dunno... I am sure it will get slaughtered. I just took this pic and happen to see ducky there and well... he looks safe, doesn't he? :D

Ok as for the title... my DPCOII Southwest Teammates made me do it hehehe

For the record, Steve aka ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' drydoc and I did not plan on putting in the same photo. I was standing next to him when he was taking this. He was the brave one who asked them if he could take the photo and I was just kind of a standing in the wings. I had no idea that he would look at this scenario the same way I did lol.

Turns out I stole his thunder - shame on me!

Edit 11/05/08: Apparently one of the people in the picture found this photo on flickr. These two women are Captain Faye Cutler and Captain Lucy along with... drum roll... Peking Duck! (hilarious!)

Oooh, great title. Just tickled that you and Steve seized the day and finished side by side, though the side by side could be a little higher.

Nothing wrong with the shot, just didn't play out, huh? As always, your sense of humor is great!

LOL @ yours and DryDoc's placing right next to each other! How funny!

I think they're both underrated. *sigh*

I'd have said that this one missed the correct challenge and should have gone into the Risk challenge......risk of too much joy for that little guy! *grin*

Actually, quite clever! Well shot and really outside of the box thinking! Too bad that others didn't see it the humor in this shot. Should have done really well! Keep on thinking the way that you do. Love it!

I think Im seeing double in this challenge. Double D's too.
A good portrait though even if it has nothing to do with safety. 5/10

There's a series of books I read to the kids I babysit. Every page has a ducky hidden on it somewhere. This picture reminds me of those books.

your title is better.

This is identical to another shot in the challenge, it's never a good idea to get your entry at the exact time and in the same spot as another contender. The idea is cute enough.
