Shooting Challenge: 7 Humorous Shots

I love the abstract nature of this week’s shooting challenge theme. It invites a much wider range of responses than we’d get otherwise, and ‘humour’ is a perfect example. From childlike happiness to geeky sarcasm, these seven reader submissions are sure to get you at least smiling.

My inspiration for this weeks challenge was a single cell cartoon I saw many years ago. Like my photo, it depicted a painter who really didn’t plan out his paint job to well. For no particular reason it has stuck in my mind so I decided to try and recreate it.

All those credits Sam and Dave spent on the Photoshop course were starting to pay off!

I am due to move out of a crumbly old rental next week, which features a large crack in one of the walls. My friend suggested on the weekend that I draw a man walking down the cracks. Instead I decided to cut out a man from paper & stick it on briefly for a photo so I can get my bond back.

Barkers Eggs
Everybody knows the joy of finding “barkers eggs” be they on the lawn or the indoor laid ones or even the sand covered one in disguise heres an unusual variety laid by my chihuahua glad they’re unbroken :)
I had to be quick with this shot after dropping the eggs the dog just sat down and looked at me wondering what the matter was , it took her only a minute or two to realise she wasn’t in trouble and start chewing one but there was only laughter as it was too big to get her teeth into so she sat down again making for more laughter ……
