By chase
Moving slightly on from my Child's Play images ( there will be more of those when the props that I need arrive),this is what happens when kids grow up & forget their childhood things.
Poor Teddies,abandoned by a cold radiator,never more to be loved Sad

Thanks to Nick ( and Heather) for the loan of the ball & cup Grin
Had a bash at B&W for this one Nick...thanks for the lesson....but it did lack the impact of the colour version for me,so ended up in the bin !
No vignette added,just textures on adjustment layers,blended in Photoshop.
Lit by window light from above & to the left.

This was inspired by an advert currently running on the Television.

Thanks for dropping by.

I love it Janet, I'm not sure mono would really suit this anyway, I don't think there be enough seperation between the Teds without a lot of work ( I might have a look later)
