Baker's Rival

By woolybill1
Fifth and last of the series from Beamish Museum's stores that began with Class Warriors . The little Co-Op girl is in the background.

Thanks to everyone for your support with this little tale.
I have long found such dolls to be rather sinister; it has been interesting to note how many agree with me.

Good mono work as well.

I imagine the precise clockwork movements, rather chilling, of an automaton. He examines carefully... but what?

I was going to give you my UA yesterday but Linda pipped you to the post. But take it today for the complete excellent series.

Fine control on the selective focus, choice of bw is spot on.

It's been a great series and I'm sorry that it has to end.

Another great addition to it, Bill.

Another excellent shot, I have added my UA for the series rather than this particular shot as I think some of the others just pip this in my opinion.
Probably looking at nothing just posing as so many courtesans did.
I might be able to sleep soundly now that this series has finished.
Been good though a bit scary.

This one is particularly sinister - inventively composed Bill.

A fine end to this series, Bill....I do agree the figures are rather sinister - especially that 'lady' yesterday! Wink They remind me of those old ventriloquist's dummies, I always found them rather frightening when I were a lad Wink

A wonderful finale' to this fascinating series Bill, and very well handled, making these characters even more sinister looking with your excellent pov's and processing.

Inspecting the minutiae, careful use of composition and DOF, accomplished image. At first glance I thought the figure was NelsonSmileSmile.

A very admirable admiral Bill, I didn't realise admiral car insurance had been going so long, or is it admiral sportswear, I'm sure they manufactured the England football teams kit back in the seventies and early eighties

Dolls and clowns are very sinister. For dolls, maybe it's the unreadable gazes. For clowns, the leer does it Smile

The co-op girl looks quite horrified that the guy's pulled the pin.
