Dance Macabre by doriano Dance Macabre by doriano
I took this photo before the war in Gaza started, at a place belonging to the painter Mohamed Abla in Downtown Cairo. The mannequins were left by a previous owner and I did not arrange them.

For the children of Gaza. :rose:

I don't know it is the color or the oddness of the doll's pose or what... but this disturbs me! It is a truly good image, but it does creep me out. LOL

And for that; well done!!!

Fine and bizarre shot, Dorian. Curiously moving for an image that doesn't actually include anyone or anything living :)

Perfect title for the subject matter. Nicely lit and shot. Dolls creep me out big time, and this is no exception. But I think we should feel disturbed when such disturbing things are going on in the world.

A nice sentiment and very effective presentation. :nod:

Amazing shot. Dolls in films - particularly horror always freak me out. The fact that the previous owners left the dolls in those positions is unnerving.

Great work.

It is, isn't it. With the all the atrocities I started to think of my photo, and yesterday a friend said she wants it printed, so today I've been editing the full version and am off soon to a eri shop to have it printed.

I have a whole series, quite spooky, and will upload them eventually.
