Sidewalk Accident

You want to know what the strangest part about this photograph is? It is the part about how I felt while taking the picture. People were walking behind me on the sidewalk while I was looking for the best composition, and I was imagining that passersby were probably wondering WHY this guy would even be photographing the mannequin on the sidewalk. I felt much better when I was done taking the photo! The winds were quite strong this day, and apparently this had just blown over, and the shopkeeper most likely had not seen it yet. Why did I photograph this scene? I have no idea, except there was this brief two or three second flash when I first saw this, that a person had fallen. After I realized that it was not a person, I was still left with that moment of shock, and I guess wanted to record it.

The passers by were thinking... "Why would that guy knock down a poor defenseless mannequin?"

I had no idea what the passers by were thinking, but I was glad when I finally had this shot and could stop photographing. Hey, this is YOUR kind of photo, isn't it? :-)

In mine, the manequin would have implants ;-)

I am still laughing, but you should have picked her up when you were done with the photo shoot!
