MocOlympics round 2, group 1F Luke Chapman vs Kevin Walter . . Category: Microscale
Here's my opponent Kevin's entry.
And here's a little piece of (badly written) prose I wrote to accompany the pictures. Feel free to skip it.
"All your water are belong to us."
"Weather's on the change." Michael looked up at the infinity of sky beyond the window of the SUV. His background as a world class meteorologist gave him an uncanny ability to sense when a new "low" or "high" weather front was developing.
"Really dear? Seems settled to me." Carol had a brief glance upwards, to see for herself.
"Seems." Michael beamed a knowing smile at his wife.
They sat in silence as Carol sporadically lifted her right foot off the clutch and, with her left foot, soflty pushed down upon the acceleration. Allowing them to roll forwards at a snail's pace to close the gap between themselves and the car in front.
Michael opened the glovebox and rummaged around inside it for the tin full of sweets he knew was hiding in there, somewhere. Whilst he was leaning forward he couldn't help but have his gaze be drawn up towards the cause of the large, mysterious shadow that had suddenly loomed over them.
He was compelled to get out of the car, Carol applied the handbrake and followed. Both stood there slack-jawed, neither had the presence of mind to do anything, except stare heavenwards.
"What in the heck is that?!" Carol eventually asked.
"Some - some kind of... U.F.O.?" Michael replied, not really having any more of an idea as to what it was than his wife.
They watched on as something opened in the centre of the underside of whatever it was. An almighty roar followed and then the reservoir beside them reached a gravity defying arm up towards the huge floating object.
"What in the heck is it doing?"
"It - it's taking the water!"
Oooh! Dramatic! Ha ha!
Same picture as main one, pre-GIMPified.
Important angle, showing the curvature of the dam. I'll have you know the 33 4x10 plates used to achieve this effect were only assembled, as such, fleetingly, to avoid long-term damage to them.
Close up of U.F.O.
Better idea of the reservoir, up top.
Thanks for looking and, once again, good luck to y'all.
