Shotgun Wedding by scottjamesprebble Shotgun Wedding by scottjamesprebble
Shotgun Wedding By Scott James Prebble


In Autumn 1881, two in-experienced lovers had a scare
When they discovered the result of their lustful affair.
Her father condemned them to their marriage bed
By asking the question they both did dread.
As much as they could protest,
He assembled the gun, the groom, the dress.
Once all was prepared, they were wed
Under the threat of a bullet to the head.


My new book ‘2am’ is available now [link]

*.* I recently discovered that I wouldn't be here if it weren't for two generations of shutgun weddings.
Great photo, makes me imagine how horrified my grandmother was after what had happened. Although, it didn't start with an affair of end happily.
The photo is incredible! Amazing job and the poem only adds to the amazing shot.
I'm glad you enjoyed it.

virtual 3D without the glasses ...
... incredibly cool
Crazy eights....straight through the face.

Chopper: Look, you're not still angry at me about the leg, are you?
Neville Bartos: Nah, forget about it.
Chopper: Because I don't know if you remember, Neville, but I had that bloody shotgun pointed at your head. I reconsidered and dropped it down to your kneecap. Remember?
Neville Bartos: Forget about it. All right?
Chopper: I mean, what the bloody hell were you doing getting lippy at me with a bloody shotgun? I had a bloody loaded shotgun.
Neville Bartos: The leg is okay, all right?

I can't tell you how many times a year I pop in Chopper. I love that film...yur picture reminded me of it.
It's a great film.
