Contemplation

By mrswoolybill
My favourite local mannequin (well to be honest the town's only mannequin) has been moved. Instead of looking onto the street he now gazes fixedly inward, at a bottle of hand sanitiser.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Gazing fixedly inwards because someone has squirted hand sanitiser on the back of their neck? Mannequins can take umbrage at this 🙂 What an unusual find, Moira.

Great link, Leo. If I run out of brandy, I could use hand sanitiser to flame the Christmas pudding...

Probably wondering if somebody has been sneaky and substituted sanitiser for polish.

Many of us feel the same way.

I did hear of some elderly ladies who were carrying small bottles of vodka in their handbags to use as hand sanitiser when supplies were short at the start of the first lockdown. At least that's what they wanted me to believe.

So this is where The Blue Man experimental rock group ended up? Obviously the image was blue before B/W!

Love it.

That really is a wonderfully poignant image Moira.
Somehow it sums up just how a lot of people feel right now !!

In his dreams he has real flesh and blood hands.

Excellent view point, Moira.
The mannequin portrays a man who has been a hundred percent sanitised.
He's now looking at the bottle and wondering if it was such a good idea?

Hair removal as a side effect? It does give a beautiful smooth skin though! Well found and framed, Moira.

He's wondering if it's drinkable - the vodka ran out yesterday.

But has he got hands to sanitise?! 😬 If not, it's about as much use as he'd have with a bottle of shampoo... 😁

I had a feeling this was yours before I even opened it! Good to see I was right, and delighted by the image itself. Such a statement for today's world Grin

Someone needs to tell her the sanitizer goes on hands not on heads. Whoever makes sanitizers have made fortunes this last year.

Now that's a problem that I hadn't considered!
Cheers folks. We have been checking out the cemetery where our friend Marcus will be buried on Monday, and photographing a dead pigeon...
