PHOTO HUNTER - HEAVY

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Here are four heavy items I have seen lately :



A carved stone with a scarab on the top. The legend says if you turn once around this rock it brings you luck and long life.



a heavy elephant in the Zoo of Antwerp (Belgium)



this statue in an Exposition




and a "heavy" diver at the beach !
(I don't know him, I took the picture because I thought he was really big and he walked like a boat !)

Gattina, I like your heavy collection! You never disappoint.

My Heavy Hunt is up here.

And here too.

Oops! My photo is about vegetables. I guess if you have enough of them, they are heavy.

Excellent photos for this theme Gattina. Sorry you are ill, I hope you are better soon.

Mar said...

Great choices (except for the heavy diver, lol)
Get well soon!

I really really like those photos, especially the Egyptian rock. Fascinating. But what in the WORLD was that man thinking about when he put on that thong? Come on!

Now you get better: bronchitis is icky, but I know you'll be fine in the end. Lots and lots of sleep and vitamin C!

Sanni said...

Excellent collection as usual, Gattina. Please place a warning sign before you ever post a heavy diver again *LOL*

Gute Besserung! ♥

I love you photos but especially the one of the diver. He has brightened up my day :)

I hope you feel brighter too - get well soon!

Omigod re that heavy diver and his tiny swimtrunks! Apologies if anyone gets offended but have to admit that the sight of him made me crack up! ;D

That heavy diver should put on some heavier clothing.
Nice pictures for the theme, though.
I had to laugh about Kari and the gold bars...
Hope you are feeling better soon!

I LOVE that last picture! VERY heavy! Mine is up at http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/prodoceo/473432/

Excellent choices! So, hm, who is my favorite? Well, it depends, they all have something... The scarab is wonderful, I love elephants and I do love the last photo for the humor :-P

I hope the bronskitis (I call it that because skit in Swedish is shit) is on the way AWAY now. I suspect that the rainy and wet weather doesn't help much... phew. Poor you.

The sad part is that he's probably wearing boxers, it only looks like a speedo on a boat. Feel Better!♥

Karen said...

LOL! The heavy diver is too funny! It's a good thing those swim trunks (speedos?) are not any smaller!

That is a great collection of heavy pictures. I especially like the first one. One must be sure to participate in such local cuatoms.

These are terrific choices for our "heavy" theme. That last one made me chuckle. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Siani said...

Great pics - the guy in the last one looks like he's half way through having a sex change (top half, LOL)! Have a good weekend.

If only I could run around the heavy stone!

Dragonstar said...

Lovely collection - though the diver's a bit much! I love your "narrow" collection from last week, too.

Janet said...

oh my eyes, my eyes!

Hi Gattina. I wasn't able to join the hunt this week but thought of coming by.

Great choices for the theme. That's an interesting stone but it must be really heavy to turn.

I hope you are feeling much better now.

If you have time, I'd like to share photos of our weekend trip during the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.
