Journey (Gudny) recently received an award and I had gone in to see her photos.  She has so many great shots from her travels I had to smile and comment on several.  One caught my eye and I instinctively knew that I had to work on it.  You know how I am about symmetry.


So I got permission, downloaded the picture and began working on it.  The tourists were easily persuaded to leave the palace by offers of chocolate just one block away.  But the guards were unswayed by my generosity.  They stood their ground.  If fact the one guy there in the front wouldn’t even move over about four inches to his left to make the symmetry better. He just stood there with a poker face as if he didn’t even see me there.


Finally I came up with a marvelous solution.  I walked up close to his ear and whispered, "For you, I'll make it Dark Chocolate".  Slowly, and still with a poker face he began to slide over, just and inch at a time until he had moved to just the right spot.
