its a wild world out there, luckily we got our hard hat

A recent gift from nan and pop was just perfect for this incarnation of a tiny panet, planetoid or what ever ya want to call them. This was the wet warm up session to the for which we are now at #37 (Alison Wonderland – I Want U) damn i love the public broadcast system in this country 🙂 I reckon there would be a revolution if they cut funding to tripleJ 😉 not only of the young folk, but also the old fogeys who grew up with the jj’s.

This image is panorama of three images, manually stitched together, there was basically nothing for the programs to be able to stitch it together except the grass and given the lightning speeds tickles was belting down the slope with her shopping trolley ( rice cakes and sugar included) there was plenty of discontinuity between the frames 🙂

cheers to +Kitten KaboodleInc for the idea of the tiny planet – it did not quite work exactly how I wanted, but chasing two kids at the same time whilst trying to set it up was…lets say challenging 🙂

  1. Absolutely surprising! Never seen anything more original, great idea and work very creative, make me smile the expression, the attitude of tickles, she seems really ready to face the "wild world out there…." 😀 Thank you very much for sharing +Gerard Blacklock Have a great week.

  2. Ah hahaha! +Gerard Blacklock​!! 😀 that is AWESOME lolol!! Loving the mini hard hat and East Clintwood expression!! 🙂 Academy Award to the star of the show (Tickles) and 10 stars for Dad for giving me the giggles at the thought of you running down a slope chasing after the girls :)))

  3. Neat idea, Gerard. I've been shopping before where a hard hat was the very least you would need for protection! Don't get in the way of the extreme couponers!

    haha.. yeah that is her serious look, which now that you mentioned it, certainly has that clint eastwood look to it 🙂
    I am sure I got plenty of strange looks from people trying to set this up at the park – the biggest challenge is trying o get her to concentrate on the task at hand rather than pointing furiously at every dog that passes by and yelling 'daaawwg' 🙂
    oh and yes, it's a sight to see me chasing these two around 🙂 especially chaos, who is getting pretty damn fast 🙂
