Photographs are game bonuses. When you go to certain places somtimes at certain times, the photographer arrives and takes a picture of you. You can then see them again going to his Camera Shop. Photograph #1 is required to get the other ones.

To be done rather at the end of the game: Get in the Town Tool Shop, take any item, quickly walk behind the shopkeeper and get out without paying! Beware, next time you get in, you'll be struck down! (D10). Besides, you don't see the mouse taking the picture!

Photograph 1

Note from Maitre Incontesté de Ganondorf: One photograph is missing. The first one can actually be different. While talking to the mouse, just refuse to be photographed. The mouse will push you and repeat the question. Keep saying "no" until it pushes you in the middle of the carpet. Say "no" one last time and it will hit you. The result is... amusing.

Thanks to Damidame for this picture!

Note from Manoscrito: Instead of the third photograph, if BowWow isn't tied in front of Madame MeowMeow's, you will get the one below (left). On the right is the other picture of Marin and Link falling!
