Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, extra

There were big two extras in this photo: the size of the cinnamon roll and Aunt Betty’s delighted expression at seeing the giant pastry (and the gentle teasing from everyone else at the table.)

Giant cinnamon roll.
That’s a cinnamon roll? What you get when you order one at Jensen’s in Burnsville, Minnesota.

And an earlier extra. Was trying to photo the ducks and found the accidental bald eagle in the image. The white tail feathers and head are backlight to the left side of the image in the trees.

A cast of extras with starring roles:



Peabody duck

The Peabody Hotels in Memphis, Tenn., and Little Rock, both have resident ducks as something of a trademark. This mallard lives at the Little Rock hotel.

This lady was resting on one of the platforms in their lobby pool. While I detest cheesy digital filters, the flatness of the lighting lent itself to Photoshop’s watercolor filter.
