~ Grin ~

The PhotoHunt for this week is 'Grin'
Since I am still in Italy. . .  I have been searching for the perfect grin

I rounded the corner from the Pantheon and found this ~
The famous Bernini sculpture in front of the church Santa Maria sopra Minervia was built in 1665. You can clearly see the grin on the elephant's face. The story is that the reason this elephant is grinning' is that his rear is facing the office of one of Bernini's antagonists.

That's enough to make you grin!
Happy Hunting y'all~

  27. The developers are saying that Defiance is a pixel perfect shooter,
    so if you aim at your target's head it WILL be a headshot instead of the invisible dice rolling a 5 and telling you that you somehow missed. The only downside of it in a lot of people's eyes is
    the fact that there is no multiplayer content. Preparing to apply to the dozens of other game
    development companies for video game jobs will enable you to expand
    and diversify your list of possible employers, and your
    chances of getting hired will increase tremendously.
