A vignette to celebrate camping. I do love the great outdoors, a lot different from what I see everyday. This is also my first vignette. Hope you enjoy!
About this creation
Here is my sigfig, having a pleasant time roasting marshmallows. He is using his newly patented collapsible marshmallow stick. Remember the times that the marshmallow slides down or off the stick? Well, this marshmallow stick has anti slip technology which guarantees that your marshmallow will not go anywere. Get yours now for no not $5.99, not $4.99, but $10.99! =P
He is also holding a marshmallow that he is about to put on the stick. I don't really like the way the campfire turned out, but I'm not the expert on fires. Notice how my sigfig was smart enough to build a fire pit and clear the area of dry brush and flammable objects.
Another view of the campfire scene. He has his hunting rifle leaned up against a twisted old stump, for easy access. The axe is also on the chopping block for chopping wood.
A rear view of the scene. You can also see the backpack lying on the ground. It sorta looks like the backpack I took to Joshua Tree.
Another rear view.
He looks content. I would be too, knowing I was going to be eating a stick, ooey, gooey, with a light shell on the outside marshmallow. Mmm, mmm.
Closeup of the backpack and some of the detailing. It looked nice at the time, but now I'm not too sure about it.
And here is the view without my sigfig and the marshmallows.
The campfire. Reminds us of the classic song, (que music) Lets gather 'round the campfire, and sing our campfire song, our C-A-M-P-F-I-R-E S-O-N-G song, and if you don't think that we can sing it any faster than your wrong, but it'll help if, you just sing along!!(bum, bum, bum!) etc.
My sigfig with his hiking pack and hunting rifle. Mighty impressive.
A better view of the backpack, it contains a flashlight, binoculars, and an axe.
(Quoting good old Elmer Fudd)
Well that is the end of my camping vignette. Hope you enjoyed this adventure. Hopefully there will be many more to come.
Please comment! Constructive criticism is welcome.
@Andrew Somers: I don't believe that that has ever happened to me, but in the morning when it is freezing I have to go. And bad. So I have to bundle up in less than a minute, otherwise I would probably explode. My bro did once...@Commander Fox: Actually, I have never been hunting. I would like to go sometime though...@Commander Trek: Yes, elmer fudd is cool. Although the person who is even better is...COOKIE MONSTER!!!
@000: He is the one who keeps the rusty machete in the compost pile...@Leda Cat: I love toasted marshmallows too, but I also like fire. Fire is really fun. But its only fun when you are camping.@Griffin Matthews: No, I do not own a hunting rifle, or even an airsoft gun. And I am not part of the BSA either. I do like the outdoors though.
I myself am quite fond of camping. I backpack, camp, and canoe to campsites. I never want to go, but I end up enjoying it when I'm there. Do you really bring a hunting rifle when you camp, or was that just ot enhance the scene. I do most all of my camping with the Boy Scouts. Are you part of the BSA?
Yum!!! I LOVE toasted marshmellows! And camping is great fun! Excellent vig! You're producing some top notch stuff lately Waff! I wish my sig was so well behaved as yours... I blame myself... btw I love the flashlight!
