I haven’t posted any of my own pics here for sometime. I’m not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing. No matter, I noticed this shop a few weeks ago, not far from my home, and I’ve been wanting to photograph it ever since. I don’t know about you, but I find these mannequins really sad. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it’s got something to do with the late afternoon light on a Sunday, or perhaps it’s knowing that no matter how long they wait, Mr. Right ain’t comin’ along and there’ll be no rescue. These pics bring to my mind the Kris Kristofferson song, Sunday Morning Coming Down. I’m quite fascinated by store mannequins. Not in a creepy way (this is no obsession). It’s just when I find some I think are interesting, or out of context, or whatever, I enjoy photographing them. I do not make a thing of hunting them down at all costs.
