PhotoHunt: colorful

Happy hunting and a great weekend to everyone!

The expression on his face is too funny! He wasn't having a good day, was he? Even though he looks so nice in that uniform!

And the dessert looks amazing. Have a great weekend!

The facial expression is quite colorful, too! I wonder how they feel, dressing up like court jesters? Boy, the times certainly have changed!

I also did Photo Hunt. Come share your link! :) http://newyorktraveler.net/photo-hunters-colorful/


So, what's the guard pouting about?

I love how the uniform goes all the way to the feet. Great choice.

Oh I remember that uniform! Makes me want to take Alessandro to Rome! :)

..maybe he got up at the wrong side of the bed =)

I wonder if he really wanted to wear that today. He is very colorful. The dessert looks really yummy!

Perfect choice! I think I have a photo of this same guy with a grouchy look :)

And...I hope we are getting the recipe to the delicious looking cake.


Maria, that's a classic shot. What a puss on his face, sorry but the first one is definitely my favorite.

Hi Maria, very cool theme photos! That's funny how you caught that pouting expression from this guard. And wow that cake is very colorful. I love all the fruit loaded on the top. Looks very delicious!

Have a great day!

I think I'd be grouchy too if I was wearing that outfit and a bunch of tourists were taking my picture. :grin:


He looks like he's seen one too many tourists!

That is an unfortunate uniform. Poor guy, I'd be pouting too!

Maria - that is the same guy! How odd is that? Talk about spooky.

I guess the Swiss Papal Guard is a very small army. Girasoli commented that she has a photo of the same guy.
