weird as the war on iraq? or weird as bob hope? smile

i like the pic very much. there are several little subjects here, all of them well focused and sharp. their sharpness contrasts with the degraded situation they are "experiencing": a box full of desarticulated old stuff, that no-one needs, wants or waits to find.

and your text, like in gary larson's "far side", helps with a lot of humor to understand what is happening and why you took or showed us the pic.

the world will be soon saturated of images. sometimes text is what we need to make sense. we might otherwise end up in the flea market chest of a distracted deity, ready to agree to anythig.

thanks so much for sharing this one.

just wanted to let you know that i additionally like this pic for the research you've done in order to present it. i found the website (http://www.niada.org/robert.html)... this is what some people call intertextuality!

so I cant talk about the rules of photography but i can say how the images speak to your average joe. this is oddly sad and like strong..i dont know how to explain it but its an emotional one. Mom would dig it..cause it's dollies. maybe thats why its sad. discarded dollies..and mom once said they have souls and here they seem like children abandoned..but so pretty and theres something in all thier little dollie eyes that seems ok with thier current state. you should make postcards
