Couldn't resist this Real Toads challenge

Yes, we got home  Friday, and yes, today is Sunday. I'm still exhausted, but did want to take a quick peek at what's happening with the online writers' group Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, my favorite garden.
The Sunday Challenge this week features photos by Real Toads member Laurie Kolp, and I just couldn't resist.
Laurie's photo of a family holiday, not your average stand-in-front-and-smile photo, reminded me of something I wrote years ago. It's probably somewhere in the early part of my blog, and I forget where, but this is the updated version, inspired by Laurie's characteristically "different" holiday shot.
First, here's Laurie's photo:

And here's my little ditty about travel souvenirs from the not-so-good old days, photographically speaking:

This is us in front of the bus in Paris
This is us in front of the bus in Rome
This is us in front of the bus
Smiling inanely, not looking like us
Standing together front of the bus in London
And this is us in front of the bus at home.

Proof that just a few words can sometimes be worth a thousand pictures!

So funny, and so typical of family shots. I cant get over how people go somewhere like Hawaii and then all their photos are about them smiling in restaurants. I like my travel photos with scenery, even if I'm just traveling down the street, hee hee. People just clutter up the landscape :-)

Scary how many pictures are taken of people stiffly standing in front of a bus looking horribly pained.
