This image may require some explanation. While "hiking" (actually a nature walk), I came across this old doll laying in the woods. Creepy? Yes! However, there is an abandoned house not far from where the doll was found. Still Creepy? Yes! Anyway, the "pure" photo was too realistic and disturbing to me (b/c I'm such a deep artist! ha). By using several filters and colors I wanted to retain some of the mood of the scene yet create a more artistic feel with the lines, swirls and colors chosen.
Without the explanation would you have recognized what it is that you are looking at? Pretend it wasn't my photo b/c you all know me (I'm not going to use a live model). I know my photography lately isn't what pleases everyone but I've been purposely pushing the limits a bit to create conversation.
