It Gets Worse!

By cattyal  
Would you trust these guys to work for you? I have absolutely no idea what he is doing in the mixer but suspect that either his sandwiches or hip-flask have been tossed in as a joke.

I've had something like this in mind for a while but no-one would fit into the mixer. It wasn't until I accidentally removed one arm of my chaps that I thought what the heck, removed the other arm and he now fits a treat Smile

So. . . you amputated someone's arms just to fit them into a cement mixer! You're weird you are!! Apart from that this photo is brilliant, makes me smile. (Does that make me weird?) Good shot.

You are one sick puppy, Alison! Join Karen and you could make a kennel! And it's down to the rest of society to try and pick up the pieces (well, them arms for a start!).

A great way to start a Sunday - smile and the world smiles with you! Smile

Thank you all you silly people - you must be at least half as daft as I am to open the thumbnail Smile

We're interesting and individual Karen, not weird Smile I have no problems with mad Carri Smile

Kate- good ideal - if anyone wants to suggest a caption go ahead - no prizes though! Wonder if I should upload it to the Caption Competition page?

Mark - no comment Smile

And to Bernard - the only apparently sane person amongst us - thank you!

I just love the sense of the absurd. Lovely composition in a bizarre sense. Nice website stuff too!

There is a scene in 'Fargo' that looks like this. 'American Psycho' tomorrow ?

Fun shot and very well done. I can just imagine you arranging the sand with a little shovel and then carefully placing the hats for the best composition.

Mad? Did I say that ....

Wooden Man considered that 'concrete boots' were so last century and was going for the 'concrete hat'

Thank you all you silly people - your comments made me smile as much as hopefully Woody made you smile.

A woodchipper is a neat idea - I do recall the film Fargo. Could I bring myself to be that cruel to the poor chap? - possibly Smile

Woody thanks you again Jane for your picture - he's rather chuffed with that!

I'm contemplating several ideas at the moment - I somehow doubt I'll be running out of pictures anytime soon!

A Superb Image...!

Out of all your thumbnails I was drawn to this one. Perhaps it's because I've used a mixer and have empathy for anyone (anything...?) falling into one... lol.

Scale, lighting and set all work for me.

Well Done.

Hi Tony - thanks for popping by - wow, you have been going through the pictures haven't you and that's really nice to know.

Woody and his pals have been very quiet of late - I must get them out again and see what else I can come up with. I'll get all their toys and accessories out one evening and see what ideas sprint to mind
