THE MUFFED TARGET - A new meme
This is the very first "The muffed target" post. There are no special rules. Just post pictures which are not at all like you had wanted and describe how it happened. Then leave a link here on my blog for other participants.
When two weeks ago the reconstitution of the Waterloo Battle took place, I hurried to the battle field to shoot pictures of the big event.
I thought I start my reportage with a view on the Lion, standing proudly on his hill with his face towards the UK and his bottom to France, because Napoleon lost the battle. The poor thing had never been behind barriers, it was the first time in 35 years I saw him locked in.
and here is my lion ! I had taken a picture of a tent, couldn't see anything on the screen of my camera.
it should have been like that.
As BBC, CNN, and other reporters weren't there yet, I took the opportunity to take pictures of the battle field and the tribunes they had built all around for the spectators of the battle
here is the battle field and the tribunes.
at least I took a picture of the harvest before the battle. Don't ask me how it looks now !
