Weekly photo challenge ~ inside ~ serious and dribbly!

This is what we have for this week….

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

So much of life happens inside something. A house, a car, a sleeping bag, a UFO.

Finding images of a thing inside something else can be a very powerful compositional tool. (Or an excuse to photograph your baby in long-term storage. Or both.)


So I wondered about this post and two things, one accidental and one manipulated came to mind and I thought I might share both, we shall start with what I call the more ‘serious’ INSIDE element.

There are some things in life that don’t meet much of the outside world and spend their life INSIDE.  They go from one INSIDE element to another INSIDE element.  The reason in this instance they stay INSIDE is first of all they would be dangerous if gotten in to the wrong hands, secondly the carrier of such item has almost become like an additional limb for me, for without it I would probably be in bed unable to have the mobility that I do.  So here is my other limb, my pill carrier, in which you see an assortment of mobility, pain relieving colourful pills.

My new limb

My new limb

Next  I would like to share a manipulated situation, for I was thinking “alright lets make a fun INSIDE shot, let’s put something INSIDE something that should not be there.”  Now my youngest son was not at home, who I call “Mr Bendy” who fits in to all kinds of weird and wonderful things, purely through his choice I might add.  So my eldest would have to do, so here is my next thought “alright I have a laundry basket, let’s see if he will fit in it”…..here goes….

Shot No 1 in the journey of INSIDE….

Oh no he most certainly did NOT fit INSIDE

Oh no he most certainly did NOT fit INSIDE

He really did NOT fit INSIDE, but he tried, it was not helped by the dogs who decided this was a great game and leaped on him…

Shot No 2 ~ mauled by dogs!

Oh yah, lets have some fun!

Oh yah, lets have some fun!

So I thought in my wisdom, OK the dogs want some fun, let’s put them in the basket….it gets messy now!  I started with the eldest who is smaller and slower, aka more chance to get him in…however I had to get him out of his sleeping basket.  He sits INSIDE his sleeping basket all day unless it is food time…

Shot No 3~ get the dog OUT of his basket…

Awww, weally you want me out of here, but it's so warm INSIDE

Awww, weally you want me out of here, but it’s so warm INSIDE

Yup I was cruel, it was a joint effort, we pretended something was INSIDE the basket and he fell for it….

Shot No 4 ~ The old woofy is tricked, I feel some small semblance of guilt that there was in fact nothing INSIDE  the basket…

But there's nothing in here and now I can't get OUT!

But there’s nothing in here and now I can’t get OUT!

Plan No B if there ever was a plan A, let’s trick or entice the younger dog, he will go for it, let’s go and get a treat, see how keen he is to play…

Shot No 5 ~ Oh yah I am keen to play, see me licking my lips as I see that treat in your hand?

Yuuuuuumy  am excited, play play play

Yuuuuuumy am excited, play play play

Let’s dangle the treat above the basket, he will get the idea surely, it will work?

Shot No 6 ~ dangling the treat!

dog treat

He loves this yummy bone to chew

dog and dog chew

Yay he has spotted it, he is getting the idea I am sure!

So finally I drop the treat INSIDE the basket…..

Shot No 7 ~ a doggie goes a searching!

Oh boy where did it go mummy?

Oh boy where did it go mummy?

Finally he has a lightbulb moment, after nearly wrecking the basket with enthusiasm he goes INSIDE, yay woopdedoo!

Shot No 8 ~ “yah I have the treat and backing out now, getta out of the way!”

dog in basket

“I’m backing out, clear the gangway”

Now this doggy firmly has his treat OUT of the basket and nobody is going to take it away from him, I don’t blame him after all that effort do you?

Shot No 9 ~ “this is mine, all mine”



But mummy, what about me, though I know my tongue always hangs OUTSIDE when it should be INSIDE (seriously his tongue is like this allllll the time, and the older he gets the longer it seems to get, it never ever goes INSIDE.

Shot No 10 ~ I guess he deserves a treat yes?


Don’t I get something?

So what do you think a good effort all around by my four legged friends and son?

A little fun for the day….

        hello my dear – yes you do have a doggy theme going on, they are funny aren’t they, my cat isn’t as funny, all he does is sit on my head early in the morning (which tells me it’s around 5am) to get me out of bed. Being occupied is good. PS – yes I am 🙂

            Doctor of Humour 🙂 I like that, but no – a regular run of the mill type medical doctor, Just googled him – it was a him of course – he is quoted as having said “I have avoided, and shall continue to avoid the treatment of women by percussion, simply because I do not wish to be hoodwinked, and help to mislead others, by the vagaries of the hysterical state …”http://www.nndb.com/people/143/000167639/ – ah yes hysterics – which coming from the Greek for uterus of course only occur in women :). More later -….
