Misadventures in Stock Photography: Part the 111th (Hand Holding Hands)

Congrats to Darcy, who won Lesson Learned by Lillian Francis!

Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today we’ll be meeting Hand Holding Hands (HHH). Remember that you can hover your mouse pointer over the cover to see how I used the title in the Misadventure.

  1. OK, the P-Shoppers have gone too far. We’ve put up with mis-shapened, smeared tatoos and hair that looks like a wig advert from a 1950s Little Lulu comic book. But that watch is the straw that broke the camel’s back. How dare they!

    Also, and less maniacally, it’s interesting that the models on His Brother’s Keeper and Three Of A Kind continue the hand-grasping theme.

    Oh yeah,does anyone know where the “Cloud In The Shape Of A Boy Nipple” Photoshop Filter is available? No? GOOD! It’s almost as disturbing as that watch.

    Thanks for these weekly laughs Chris. Hope all is well with you.

  2. Hmmm. A bit convoluted at the end perhaps. LOL I’ve never really noticed all those hands before, but now that I see them all out there it’s clear.

  3. Mayhem – you’re absolutely right of course… But they should also applaud your Mom for being so clever too!

  4. Wow. That’s a lot of hands.

    Also, in some of those pictures, it’s hard to say for sure that it’s a man-boob, and not a woman’s…

  5. *guffaw* That gave me another good morning laugh! (the kitty obviously suspects naughtiness, that face! So cute!)
