41/365 Holding hands during a 6D experience
That's Boy Three and I holding hands like fury during the 6D Experience motion thrill ride. It might have looked like we were strapped into large plastic chairs in the middle of a self-important shopping centre, but really we were chasing the bad guys through a game reserve.
Actually, it's easy to be sniffy about it but the XD Experience was really quite good fun. I did come away wondering exactly what all the Ds were.
Clearly there are the traditional along and up of ordinary film, then the D you get wearing weird glasses. As far as I can see the sensation of wearing slightly smudged, too big specs is the greater part of that, but what do I know?
Then there must be at least one D from having a chair that bumps around a bit, plus one from the wind that puffs in your face creating the sensation of whizzing through the air leaning out of a helicopter. Well almost anyway...
So what, then, is the other D for? I was hoping for a whiff of elephant fart or the smell of a buffalo's bottom, but nothing...
Anyhow, Boy Three and I had fun hurtling around after the baddies narrowly missing the wildlife. And it's ever so nice when someone simply needs to hold your hand.
