[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My friend, Reenie, who I have posted before, visited me recently. This photo was originally taken for her grandchildren as something to make them laugh. I added the text to include a bit more humor for the little ones.
Last night I remembered the Poster category of the Scavenger Hunt and decided to enter it (with Reenie's permission...Thanks, Hon!) in the Scavenger Hunt.
Isn't it something how things can begin as one thing and be somthing else, too?
Ain't life grand? I am so thankful to be a small part of it....
1. Reenie straddles the concrete crocodile and wrestles him down while I snap the action....
2. Erased a LOT of stuff that was in the background.
3. Painted a "sky" and added text.
4. Stamped the butterfly for whimsy.
5. Added small frame.

Thanks for the visit today. Always a pleasure to be here in Treklens Land. Wishing you butterfly kisses and lots of hugs .......:O)

Very cute Kat! Nicely done, fun shot.

God's best,


Oh! This is a fun shot of your friend. The fearless grandmother with a smile on her face encountering that big beast of a crocodile. It's funny. A nice entry for the hunt Kat. I like the R rating, it's cute.

Great, you did it. I just sent you a mail mentioning this and then you come a long with a blockbuster of a movieposter that promises a hilarious sequel to the Crocodile Dundee series. This will be serious competition for George Lucas and his latest Star Wars endeavours.

Great Poster Kat - the happy lady looks like she can tackle anything! Keep in her good books! Very colourful and amusing shot. I am sure her grandchildren will love it. Great entry for the Scavenger hunt poster section.

Is it the grandmother of that guy in Africa who follw crocodiles and different style of dangerous animal?

Funny one! it give the impression the movie will be mostly comic then full of blood ;o)

Reenie, quelle force! Kathleen vos amies sont de vraies gardes du corps vraiment marrantes!
