they are some cool pics but it upset me to see the duck on dirt
in some places dirt can stain different types of material including rubber, here in Perth the sand is very fine and when you walk through it you either get black feet or if your wearing white or light coloured shoes they get stained, same goes with rubber ducks.
when i was young i bought a rubber duck from toys'R'us, it was so awesome, i loved my little duck, i played with him in the bath and took him to the movies, one day i took him outside and droped him, when i picked him up he wasnt yellow anymore he was a dusty brown on some bits and black on the side he hit the ground. i raced him back inside and tried to clean him in every way i could but nothing worked
i still loved him. but my mother threw him away like she has done with so many of my ducks and other stuff, i have also made the mistake of leaving one of my ducks outside and it faded so now all the rubber duckes i have left are strikctly indoor ducks
