All Chucked Out

By woolybill1
Several people have commented on my recent uploads that they looked 'spooky'. Guess how I felt when I encountered this disembodied doll's head disinterred during the archaeological dig that we photographed in September?

It is photographed as I found it, though I admit to being responsible for the b&w processing.

Thanks for all the stimulating comments on this series, the votes and awards, most recently from Alfie. All very much appreciated.

I find dolls spooky whatever the situation. This one must be an omen of something. Sweet dreams. Smile

Definitely spooky! Enhanced by the gritty mono processing 👍

Spooky, yes.
It is that time of year though.
At least it wasn't a real head...

The gritty monochrome treatment really puts it across. If normal mono, it would not have the same impact.
