X marks the Spot

What is said upon finding your target has been marked out. Derived from an X on pirate treasure maps. The phrase was put into common usage by the British army, who performed executions by marking a piece of paper with a black x and positioning it on the heart of someone sentenced to death.

The acting officer would say "X marks the spot" and the firing squad would shoot the x.

First Title I had in mind for this pic was 'Girls just Wanne Have Fun'

'Girls just wanne have fun', vereist wat minder uitleg Erik, beide zijn leuk, beiden ook trouwens!

:) Frank.

Great capture Erik. And a creative title too :)

Kind regards. Finn.

Soms is de makkelijkste weg gewoon niet de leukste Frank.


Hello Finn got pretty lucky with this shot. The action makes it hard to have the focus right

Greetings Erik

Great shot Erik she really is having fun isn't she! Is this the same little girl that is in the other shot on the farm?

Erik van den Ham on December 12, 2008

Hello Rafael, oronbb and Samantha, these girls are different from the one in the farm. They are not even related, and a bit older too.
