Dollface

Dollface
A really disturbing dolls-head, found in the stamp sand at an old copper mill. June 1994.

I've always been both drawn to and repelled by the weirdness of this picture, and I remember being a bit spooked even while taking it. This version is pretty much as-is, only gamma-shifted to enhance the B-W contrast a bit. Time and exposure to UV and the stamp sand had turned the doll head's hair pink and its vinyl skin a ruddy grey.

If you click on the map link, you can actually see the stamp sand on the satellite view, stretching a half-mile out from the mill and several miles south along the Lake Superior shoreline. Couldn't get away with creating a moonscape like that nowadays.
