This week’s Photo Challenge was Window. I have two very different takes on this. The first, is inside looking out.
As I travel often for work, I often spend a lot of time looking through windows. This was taken from the back of the tour bus (where the freak show is) on my last tour, while looking out of the emergency exit window located in the roof of the bus. We’d been driving for a while, I remember, and this was the first sign of some sort of civilization I had seen after hours of nothing but sky. To be perfectly honest, I can’t remember which civilization this was, which is sadly, often the case on the road. When you’re in a different country every day, you’re lucky to even remember what day of the week it is, let alone where you are. If anyone recognizes this building, feel free to put me in my place and I shall send cookies to you post-haste for being a know it all.
This next photo, is to be interpreted as if from the “creepiest window display of dolls that I’ve ever seen in my life”‘s perspective.
Seriously…how freaking creepy is this display???
I’m not kidding…go on and click on it, and hover over and zoom in.
This was taken in Helsinki, Finland across the street from my buddy’s apartment building, which you can see in the reflection of the window. All day long these dolls stare at the building…plotting their escape. Waiting for the day they are free from the shop window to massacre everyone in the apartment building that they are faced with every day. Limbs will be ripped off and eaten, eyeballs used as ping-pong balls, teeth pulled from your skull as you scream in terror!
Or possibly, they are planning on completely redoing the exterior brick of the building and replacing it with solar panels to save the planet.
Either way, it’s clear they are up to no good.
I mentioned two perspectives, however.
The view from the opposite side of these windows of passersby peering into the shop window or sneaking a glimpse through the tour bus windows. They’re perspective is one into the freak show.
And that concludes my submission to the Weekly Photo Challenge.
