Going Head-To-Head

Smile, You’re On (Very) Candid Camera

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON


I was on my way into Klondike Kate’s for lunch on my second day in Dawson City when I noticed this sight. I told my two companions to continue into the restaurant, and I would join them in a few seconds, as soon as I had taken this shot.

So let's test your powers of observation. Were you so intent on the painted figures that you missed seeing the pot of gold? Answer truthfully, please!

I guess most tourists stand here and only hit the shutter when their friends or family have put their heads into place in the wooden board - but I wanted to do it when there was no one else in the shot.

The last thing I want to do is to frame an innocent person!

My excuse is that I'm not wearing my glasses and it's been a long day! ;-)

I was too busy looking to see if there were any faces in the outlines.

I missed the gold.
But not wearing glasses!

That painting is very well done.

Is that gold? I missed it.

I didn't see the gold until you mentioned it -- but I like to think that just means that I haven't become greedy and depraved! :D

angie said...

Guilty as well.

Dan Mega said...

Wow David.

"frame an innocent person"...zing!

Nicely done sir, I laughed out loud.

BRUNO said...

OK, OK---I confess, I did have to take a second look for the gold!

Hell, I'm a man---what more can, or should, I say???

David: The holes are all I saw. what gold?

I did look back to see a pot
and all I saw was a sack
I looked around an awful lot
I guess my vision does lack.

I've got to stop looking at your rymes first.

I was trying to read the note off to the side and didn't see the gold! the first thing I noticed though was that there were NO faces in the cut out.
