The challenge lends itself to a revisit with the Umbrella Man.
Very difficult setup. Very deep snow out in field. Wife Sandy not impressed when I made her carry the ladder( not really). Thankfully we were in a pretty desolate area so not many gawkers :D Why is that crazy fellow wiring that burnt toast in the tree.

Ok DPcers ... this gets as deep as the snow we trapsed across

The 3 items floating above the Umbrella Man represent the Trinity.
God, the son and the Holy Spirit.

The telescope represents God a masculine item all seeing omnipotent
The toast and toaster represents Jesus, the nourisher,the bread of life.
The Irish dance dress represents the Holy Spirt, an ethereal entity relating to the Arts and feminine mystic, or the Spiritual side of life.

The photo is a subtle way of relating the idea that the Trinity is always there.
The Umbrella man is kind of a magical soul so it is natural that he would encounter this event

Hopefully this does well, though I expect some backlash ... But backlash is always fun :D

Thanks for looking
Cole

Those are three weird items to use to represent the trinity, but hey it works.

I knew it. It has your signature all over it. This was one of the ones that although I couldn't see any of the face, it gave the person's essence. Congrats.

I loved this shot and gave it a 10. I love it even more now finding out that there was symbolism behind the bizarreness. Great job, I was hoping this would ribbon. So close!

Ah, just superb. I'm stunned it did not ribbon, expected this to finish right behind Doc's wildly transluminant little masterpiece :-)

The jumping toasts are the icing on this delicious cake.

Very well accomplished, I'm curious how you managed to to this. If it's done with strings, it's quite an impressing work!

This is awesome. I just love this and it is my top pick for this challenge. This is just 100% perfectly executed.
The toast coming out of the oven is the best touch. 10

While I tend to enjoy this series, I don't think this one has enough that is new. I'm not going to vote it low, but not high either. I'll give you a neutral 6. :)

It is always such a treat to see your work, Coley. I am especially intrigued by the popping toast.
