Archery Practice

 

Though I’m a fan of archery and kicked ass at it back when I was in high school, I’m not talking about my own archery practice here.

 

I’m talking about Link.  He’s known to be proficient in many weapons (those of you that enjoy the Legend of Zelda games know this well); the bow being one of them.

 
Link's Archery Practice

 

As my Link figure only came with his sword and shield (and interchangeable hands), I had to make his bow.  Go me!  Now Link can reach those pesky enemies from a distance!

 

 

 

Until next time…

What’s In There?

 

Link knows well that being a hero means being not only brave, but curious.  Curiosity helps heroes find the clues they need (and hidden treasure chests!) to complete their quests.

 

Here we see Link’s curiosity at work, wondering what could possibly be down in a hole in a stump.  Hopefully it’s a treasure chest and not a monster.

 

What's in there?

 

 

Until next time…

Labor Day

 

 

So, today is Labor Day.  I hope everyone has a nice holiday, whatever your plans may be.  And I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating, please, if you’re going to partake of any alcohol at whatever event you plan to attend, please drink responsibly and have a designated driver.  Better yet, BE the designated driver!

 

 

I went camping this past weekend completely forgetting that it was Labor Day weekend.  The entire campground was packed to the brim but I was lucky enough to get a decent site.  While sitting in front of the fire in the evening, I decided to take a few artsy shots of the dancing flames and glowing embers.  I like photographing campfires because due to the unpredictable nature of fire, you never know how the shot will turn out each time you press the shutter button.

Link also got in on the action for a brooding silhouette shot.

Even Heroes Need A Break

 

Questing, battling monsters, rescuing princesses, and saving kingdoms… It’s hard work. It should come as no surprise that even heroes need a break now and then.

Link is notorious for sleeping for long periods of time. He was even considered “lazy” by the Great Deku Tree and the Kokiri. But once he’s refreshed from his nap, watch out!

This concludes this month’s blog posts. As I mentioned on the first, I won’t be posting next week (the 22nd) or the following week (the 29th). I’ll be back with a new post on Monday, September 5th.

Link’s Greatest Find

 

 

Everyone who is familiar with and is a fan (like me) of the Legend of Zelda games knows that Link never starts out in the game with the best equipment. In Ocarina of Time he starts out as a child who has to find the small Kokiri sword and buy the wooden Deku shield. In Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword he has to find and/or buy and continuously upgrade to better equipment.

 
When it comes to his shield, the best of the best happens to be the Hylian shield. He usually has to go in search of it (or purchase it, or even have it gifted to him after completing some task, like in Ocarina of Time).

 
Here we see our Hero of Hyrule when he discovered his greatest find…
The Hylian shield!

 

 

Behold! Link discovers the Hylian Shield!

I’m a total nerd, I know… And proud of it!

 

 

 

Until next time…
