Need a Hand ?

By chase
Another from my raid on the barn next door but one, a hand from a mannequin, not in perfect condition but I think it has been in the barn for some years.
Well, it's different, maybe I should have called it...'Basket Case' , could describe me quite well atm Wink

I was tempted to paint the nails but I think it's from a male model Wink

Lit by diffused daylight camera left.
An HDR image, 5 frames each 1 stop apart, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Take care everyone, stay safe and smile Smile

Definitely a male hand, but is he picking up the petals? Or throwing them out?
I think he must be throwing them out, one because he is a man and two because he must be short of room in there Wink

Really creepy.
I had that same basket at one time, but the woodpigeons were having difficulty in building a nest in my laburnum tree so I used the lid as a makeshift platform for them. They had 2 squabs but made heck of a mess of the lid. Smile

Well that's a different way to use the lid, well done though, helping the wildlife along.

Silently pleading for help, or luring unwitting victims...

Oh wow! ...
This is wonderfully enigmatic, and disturbing, the stuff of dreams and panic attacks. The petals seem to be scattering in fear.
