Challenge: Stranger In A Strange Land II (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Location: Snoqualmie, Washington
Date: Aug 25, 2012
Aperture: 4.0
ISO: 100

I found this doll's head on the street in Santa Fe, New Mexico in July. Having just reread "A Canticle for Leibowitz", the great sci-fi classic, I named the doll's head Rachel who was a head growing out the tomato seller's neck. A bizarre thing as her second head was really her unborn daughter, Rachel. Strange enough? Anyway this was shot on top of some old train mechanism at the Railway Museum in Snoqualmie, Washington. I don't expect much from this in terms of scoring however. It's a bit weird and will only appeal to limited audience. So be it.

Doll head shots always seem so freaky to me. This one is spooktacular.

Textures are good, lighting give a sense of detachment (no pun intended) and I just like it for the ambiguity.
