If you go down to the farm today. . .

It’s nice when a photograph receives an unexpectedly positive response, isn’t it? Although I quite like the madcap humour of the picture below, I was going to delete it. Until, that is, I saw Mrs Adams’ response.

A fun, madcap photo I took while visiting Godstone farm in Surrey. I was going to delete it but it reduced Mrs Adams to hysterics so thought it must be worth sharing!

When Mrs Adams saw the picture she burst into hysterics. At that point, I thought it might be worth sharing with the world.

I took the picture when Helen, Izzy and I visited Godstone Farm, a petting farm in Surrey. It was a special treat now that school is out.

You need not worry: nobody has been buried head first in the ground. I can assure you this is nothing more that a fun, eye-catching sculpture someone has put together!

I wasn’t sure if I should try to re-align the picture so that it appeared straight. When I tried doing this, however, it lost its character. Sometimes photographs are best left as they were taken: raw, rough and ready.

I hope you liked the image. I have added it to the #MySundayPhoto linky which is hosted by the splendid Photalife.com blog. To see photography produced by other bloggers, simply click on the badge below to visit the linky.

      It made me laugh when I first saw the sculpture, but I wasn’t sure about the photo. Mrs Adams did a great job of persuading me otherwise.

      I wish I could take credit for the actual sculpture, but that’s someone else’s doing!

    Love it, a fun photo. I could make a joke about you burying your head…but I won’t

    Thank you for linking up

      That would have been a great joke Darren. Great news that you like the shot. It’s certainly a fun image (or I think so anyway!).

    Oh this is brilliant, I can see myself recreating this – Sorry Farmer Nick!

      Hi Carol, thanks for commenting. I wouldn’t want it to make you do anything else.

      Yeah, fun is how I’d describe it. Certainly not high art but who cares?

      Thanks Susan. Delighted to hear you think it is genius! I simply had it down as a bit of fun.

    I actually thought the legs were real at first so surprisingly amusing. Brilliant πŸ˜‚

    I think the wonky angle works. Tilted screen just to check (didn’t everyone?) and it loses something. A photo that makes people laugh is no bad thing. #MySundayPhoto

    Someone has a brilliant fun sense of humour there John and thanks for deciding to include it for your Sunday Photo. I had quite a giggle looking at it. Enjoy your week πŸ˜€
