Photo Hunters~ Candy

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

When I first saw this week's theme, I started thinking up a fun way to take some cool macro shots of different kinds of CANDY, but suddenly I remembered a series of photographs I took directly after Christmas that hadn't been edited yet. This seemed like a good excuse finally get around to editing them, and to actually share them.



A friend of ours received this gigantic candy cane as a present. They couldn't see the use in it, so Hubby brought it home for Sugar Bear. She packed it around for quite sometime before I broke down and let her have a try.





First we needed some photos with it. Of course....you wouldn't think a moment like this would go undocumented now would you?



Then we took a hammer to it, and broke off a few chunks. Sugar Bear nibbled on it a bit, but truth be told.....she isn't a fan of CANDY cane.



In the end, Tiny the horse got some nibbles, then the rest when in the trash. The idea of it was much more exciting than the reality.

Thank you for stopping by my Blog this week. I really appreciate it. I look forward to viewing some really wonderful treats. Have a great weekend!

Oh I really loved that! :) What fun you had with it! Have a great weekend. ;)

Carver said...

That is great. I love the shots you got of your daughter with the humongeous candy cane. I can see how the idea of it is better than actually trying to eat it. It certainly would take a big hammer, ha.

Yen said...

WOW! amazing photography you have here! Love all the photos specially your adorable daughter;)

Little Peanut said...

She is so cute. I don't think mine would know what to do with a candy cane that big!

Sarge Charlie said...

napaboaniya said...

That's real CANDY!!! That could have probably fed the entire nursery school :P

jmb said...

That sure is a huge candy cane. Your lovely daughter looks intrigued. Have a great weekend Corey.

leslie said...

That's a great series of shots. Reminds me when my daughter won a giant chocolate Easter rabbit. You get sick of chocolate after a while, believe it or not! lol

Come and see my different approach to the theme this week. Have a great weekend. :D

Blur Mommy said...

Wow, that is a huge candy cane. It sure makes a good prop for photo-taking. :)

Huey said...

Whoa this is really a big one!

Kat said...

The look of that candy cane alone makes my teeth hurt. Have a wonderful weekend.

Irene said...

Great photos! And yes, you are so right, the idea is most often much more exciting and enticing that the reality! Especially with kids.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Hee hee it's nearly as big as Sugarbear. Perfect.

JC said...

Awesome shots and an awesome peppermint stick! Whenever we had extra peppermint candy I drop a small chunk in my hot coffee. That one would last a very long time ;-)

Sandy said...

Oh my gosh, those are the cutest pictures.

Sandy said...

Oh my gosh, those are the cutest pictures.

feefifoto said...

Wow, that's dreamy. Do you still have it? Chunks of peppermint are divine in chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.

mama meji said...

That was HUGE! I've never seen a cane of that size before. It must have been fun breaking it down. :-)

bingskee said...

sugar bear looks sweet! that photo with the hammer is hilarious. :-D

Jenty said...

Good grief, I've never seen such a huge piece of candy before!!

jams o donnell said...

Wow that is a monster piece of candy. Even I couldn't eat that in one sitting! Have a great weekend

Molly said...

What sweet shots! Thanks for sharing them. :o)

starnitesky said...

Wow that is huge - what fun!

ellen b said...

Now those are great shots for the candy theme! I'm glad you remembered them. happy weekend...

peppylady said...

Great take on this week theme. I bet it took your daughter a while to eat it.

My photo is up.

littlepolaris said...

So cute! Your daughter is so adorable! And that candy cane is huge... I want one too!!!!

girasoli said...

Wow, that certainly is the biggest candy cane I have ever seen. It would probably last months or even a year if you were serious about eating it. Great shots!! AND great choice for this week's theme.

Just Jinny said...

Did you notice that the chocolate was on the very bottom? My own way of trying to forget the chocolate is there..cover it up with hard candy. lol.

I don't think Sugar Bear needs any help being sweet.

holly said...

does she speak softly when she carries such a big stick?

sorry. it's bedtime.

Carolyn said...

That is just completely and totally insane. Who would actually eat that thing? Big foot?

Hilarious. Great photos too. And here's something spooky, just before clicking through to your blog, I went and grabbed myself a huge handful of candy to nibble while I was reading. Coincidence? I think not!

btw - thanks for your wonderful compliments about my photos. It means a lot coming from you!! And thanks for voting too. And LOL on your comment about sqeezing our kids so tight their heads might pop off. I think Csilla worries about that on a daily basis!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

caryn said...

whoa! that is a huge piece of candy! were you able to finish all of it off?

Heart of Rachel said...

Wow, that's a big candy cane. I love the photos. Precious and worth remembering.

Childlife said...

That is one HUGE candy cane! Looks like a ton of fun though -- almost literally :D
