Are we not mannequins?
I've recently purchased a 1970's era Yashica 35mm camera with the intention of using it for Black & White street photography. There really is something about black and white film that really can't be reproduced otherwise. And it just seems right to use a camera from that era for street photography. It just makes you feel like you have a least a little old school cred.
While I was messing around with the camera, trying to get used to it and learn its quirks I went to the Sweet Union Flea Market on Hwy 74. It is kind of like taking a quick trip to Tijuana, save the worry of landing in a Mexican prison. While strolling around, I started taking some shots of mannequins. I'll admit, I've always had a bit of a mannequin and mannequin parts fetish. No apologies. But mix the lure of fake bodies, black and white film, and a need to create stories...well, take a look.
(This one was actually taken at Cline's Antique's with a Nikon N80)
