Gumballs

 
Posted by Picasa


Don't even think about trying to steal any of these gumballs at the Tallahassee Mall. As you can see from the sign, they are protected by a security camera!

Those colours make a good photo - that's one way to 'steal' them legally!

Great gumballs!

SRQ said...

Love the old fashioned gumball machines. Nice colors.

Criminals will stoop to any level.

A shame! I'd love some of the green apple ones!

I bet those apple gum balls are cheek puckering.

What a great shot Lois. Those green apple ones are making my mouth water. Not to mention my dentist's eyes light up :) Kat

A security camera for gumballs??

I could never chew gumballs, even as a kid. Too huge. Love their colors though.

Halcyon said...

I wouldn't dream of stealing one. Might purchase a couple though. :)

Ms. Moon said...

I would like to have those in my house. Not to chew but just to look at.

Well, I guess if someone will steal a gumball, they are apt to take most anything! Better get 'em on camera now before they progress to bigger things!

My mouth puckered just reading the Green Apple sign. Wonderful colors. Thank goodness they're safe from any Gumball Bandits!

Cool composition, Lois! And that green is really eye-catching.

I wouldn't think of it!! MB

Love the way you composed this! Only a dumbell would try to steal gumballs when watched by a security camera. Big Brother is everywhere - watching even dumbells and gumballs! Sheesh!

Love the vibrant colors of these yummy looking gumballs! I had my share as a kid ... but alas, no longer.

But a security camera??? Hmmmmm apparently kids will think of anything!

What has the world come to? We even need security cameras for gumballs!?
;-D

Kaori said...

There's so many of them! Great shot :D

Beth Niquette said...

Oh my goodness! What a WONDERFUL photo! The colors just fill my eyes--such a beautiful combination--I want to look and keep on looking!

Tricia said...

WoW! They take gumball thieves very seriously, huh?! I haven't had a gumball in YEARS!

VP said...

I used to love that, I still love them and the colors are so beautiful!

Marie said...

Funny, there are cameras everywhere now :-)

this too will pass said...

where's the nearest dentist?

biebkriebels said...

The gumball thieves must be very desparate to do such a thing..

Pam said...

I wouldn't even consider it but I would buy one of each ;)

There's a lot of money in gumballs. Most of those machines probably have $100+ in them before they are empty. Less than $10 of gumballs = more than $100 gross sales = a pretty good business opportunity.

mhmmm yummy!

That's funny! Gumballs always make for a cool photo.
