#021-365 Bargains

Considering the currnt crisis, when I went to the Farm Funtastic Day up at Caboolture on Friday, I saw these and thought I should let you all know, that they are going cheap due to the pandemic, and I know you all want one (To remind you of me).

These are just two of a multitude of Fibreglass animals a guy had on sale, along with a whole truckload of signs that is going to force me to reissue my "signs signs" post, after I have had a chance to process the many shots I got, it is taking a bit of time cause I want to show a Whip Cracker (Not Sally) that I snapped but may need help with the processing. I guess I am weird as I have always found Wart Hogs to be charmingly beautiful.

I'll pass - this looks a little too scary...and weird. But, can't wait for the Whip Cracker.

Don't think this one is charmingly-beautiful!! Wonder what will be next?

The seller sure had a sense of humor! Great catch!

I dont find those animals charming at all... reminds me of some movie, but cant remember wich one...
However it is a nice shot :o)

Regarding the belly-dancer: You are right that would have been better keeping the colors, but I had to do something radical about all the red from the lightning, I couldnt get rid of it and still keep the other colors...

Pysen73 said...

Dont worry, I didnt take it as such, I totally agree with you that colors would have been better (just not red spotlights ;o)

Wonder what Sally would have said if you had returned home with that thing in tow! I'll bet she wouldn't have said "charmingly beautiful, dear" and put him on the front lawn! Fun shot though, Ron, and perfect for the theme.

Fun capture--I wonder if there were any takers.

Ah Ron...I've been away for a bit and it is great to see that your blog again. Of course, I can always count on your site for the most interesting photo subjects!! I think this guy might be scarry enough to ward away the flu all by himself. Fun shot!!

I'm back.....I know you are just happy as heck! :) Actually I find this guy kinda cute and quirky (I always love the weird - that must be why I enjoy you and your comments so much)! :) I've enjoyed the pics you posted in the past week - especially the sunset and bird!!

What possesses people to make such things! Even the gnome was looking askance! Fun shot

Iona said...

lol Love his face mask sign! Humor must be his best virtue. :D

Great shot. Does not look a bit scary for me.

shadowsandhighlights said...

Interesting! Are you having a 'lab created' swine flu problem there also or are they scaring everyone just like here? Love the shot though!
Ron, your posts aren't coming through on my Bloglines list. I tried re-entering your info but it says I'm already subscribed to that blog. I don't want you to think I'm avoiding your posts, just that I don't remember to check your blog from my blog page.

Glad to see you'll be protected there buddy! I was researching business continuity in the case of a pandemic at work today and AU and NZ seemed to be ahead of the curve.
