  3. What a dilema - do I ask grany or the police? Must get the police - I see double - why do I see two granys - must be the mushroom one of them gave me. Where is my brother who is suposed to watch over me - with that girl again - Police will take me to jail because I talk to strangers - shouldn't have done this - I'll stick with grany - she'll give me two times the love - and may be double cookies :) :)

  4. Ellie... I think it was more like he was thinking about asking the Police for help, because the Grannies intimidated him :::))) Have you ever read "Witches" by Roald Dahl???

    I dont know why but I immediately thought of that book when I took this picture :)

  5. It is interesting to see the different view points though... since it could be interpreted that either the child or the grannies made the approach.... still sticking with the the Roald Dahl version... :) It is more sinister!!!

  6. Hey, Marie! Is this some kind of extraterrestrial? What the hell has he got on his pointy little head?

  7. Jacob, I think you are right there... she is about to prod him with her finger on the head, and that is why he is looking over at the policeman for a little assistance... should have hung around and waited for the next shot. My guess is that it would have been an action shot... a long snaking finger, missing by millimeteres the blur of a young kid, racing toward an unsuspecting cop...

  11. Trust me - the kid is bothering the ladies - they are nice to spare a moment of their attention. Most likely the kid is saying - Policeman! Policemen! Look over there! The lady asks - Do you want to be a police officer when you grow up? And the lady is thinking : Where is your mother to stop all that screaming :)
