The Beautiful Watchers

By Paree
The beautiful watchers have gathered to watch the latest attempt to rescue Maisie
they have been summoned from the (Womb watchers ) uploaded previously. to watch the latest attempt of rescue.
It seems she has crept through a tiny black hole in space deep amongst the coloured ether.

The ladies in the image are taken from a photograph with an interesting story.
I went to Milton Keynes shopping centre, and in the middle of the walk way was a stall unmanned, of these wonderful wigged heads, they were selling the wigs,
I ventured across seeking a photozene moment, and set my sights on a picture, snapped away happily, after just one picture, a lady appeared from nowhere, and glared at me asking me why I was taking photo's and did I want to buy a wig.
Now had this stall been selling drinks or something similar I would have bought something, but to try to pretend you wish to buy a wig is a bit difficult,
So I mumbled no and scuttled away,
I only got the one shot but have used it many times as it was a good one,
This begs the question, How do people take these wonderful candid pictures with out being spotted lol

Hi Maureen,a brilliant manipulation and the colours/tones and the way Maisie has appeared is brilliant,a new adventure begins.I'd have been like that too,but with hindsight i'd have said you were taking pictures to show your friend who was thinking about a wig to see if she didn't mind and she would probably have let you get a couple of're friends with yourself and we all want to see the heads in your photos lol.Marvellous work.Take care.AnnSmile

thanks Ann andGreg and Chris
the lady on the far left only managed to get half her face in the photo but I love the fact that she has lost a little bit of paint from her nose, beautiful, but quite dead I love mannequins they have such an errie quality

i dunno maureen, i was taking pics in local market one day and had a very irate bloke quizzing me as to why i was photographing his stall (i wasn't actually! lol) think he thought i was someone 'official' maybe, and it made me very nervous, after that i always ask first re stallholders anyway Smile

Great image Maureen, I agree with you about mannequins they are errie, I have just taken some photos of an old doll to use in a composite image, will let you know when it is finished.
Well done. Click, keep em coming.

Very interesting and surreal image Maureen and as to your question, I have no idea how people manage to take candids and get away with it. I was chased by a tramp in Manchester once and haranged by a stallholder in Greece just for snapping his spices!

Good job there are 4 heads to me it felt like a scene from Macbeth, only a lovely little kitten appears to soften the image.

I love it

what a strange cat, Maisie; anyway an image that summons up other images; like the bit mysterious quality in it. the image could be used for the cover of a book or something like that. alfred

Beautiful image, Maureen, and Maisie looks very well protected Smile

As for the wig lady, there was no need for her to be so vicious! She could have expressed interest instead of venom. Boooooo to her Smile
