Stock Photo Review #1

Welcome to my master’s degree class in Crisis & Trauma Counseling! I’ve lost my ability to listen any longer, so let’s pick a random stock photo and review it. Quick, before class ends. What shall we type? Hmmmm… how about “playtime.” I’ll drop that in the stock photo search and take the first thing that comes up. Shall we?

Okay, here we go. This is the first picture for “playtime.” Am I the only one who thinks this is a weird example of playtime? What is this evil girl doing to her second-tier Disney princesses? It appears she’s used her iron grip to crush them permanently in colored cement. She’s making them concrete “dresses.” Once it dries, she will put them in her clay-royal menagerie and cherish them forever. That one on the left looks like she’s had her arm forced into an unnatural position. That seems mean.

Look there, in the background… You can see her next victim being prepared.

So yeah. That’s “playtime.” I rate this stock photo…. 3 out of 4 captured innocents.

Class is over.

  1. Oh! My! Stars! You are so blasted clever. You just made my day. Now, how much do I owe you for this session of comic relief? LOL!šŸ¤£


  2. šŸ˜‚ Is this going to be a regular review? I personally think the middle dress is charming! It looks like she was going for the choke collar look.
