I look at this onraz and will I admit that I do not know what to think: dummies this or nation..., and maybe dummy and man...? Excellent framed.

COOL!!!! Love it!
22 Mar 2009 6:00am
une autre dimension !!
22 Mar 2009 6:21am
I love the framing and composition; the dummies being slightly out of focus really contributes to the mpood of this photo. Amazing work!

Etonnant et mystérieux! Belle ambiance pour ce N/B!!

Some plastic people look more real than human beings - please see above ;/ Love the textures & light blur through the glass*

@k@: Thank you K. Yes, I agree they most certainly do. There is just something about mannequins that I personally find fascinating.
I adore the legend for this one ! I don't anderstand how you made it, but it's fine !!!!
22 Mar 2009 9:21am
elle est sublime celle ci, l ambiance fantomatique est lyrique ^^
22 Mar 2009 9:36am
Interesting silhouettes with this B&w of yours... they somehow look alive !
22 Mar 2009 10:12am
Are you sure this is not a shop window in Amsterdam, no, it cant be, they are dressed. Nevertheless, these two almost look real and this is accentuated by the blur effect so you cannot tell if they are real or not. Super image
22 Mar 2009 10:25am
@P J W Miller: Thank you Peter. No blurred effect here just a conversion to greyscale and a slight vignetting. I really should go look at the exhibit inside the art gallery to see what it's all about though, as it does look rather interesting.
I think is a really strong image.
22 Mar 2009 10:28am
I hope so ! another excellent capture the blank background really makes them stand out :)
22 Mar 2009 10:47am
:-) i like plastic people :-)
22 Mar 2009 11:16am
Absolutely terrific, Sharon! One could reflect on this photograph and its title for a lifetime!
22 Mar 2009 1:39pm
Buena toma y mejor título.
22 Mar 2009 1:47pm
Beautifully composed. I love how you've faded from places. Very realistic.
22 Mar 2009 1:49pm
I could spend a LONG time looking at this image imagining all kinds of things! excelent compo and pp
22 Mar 2009 2:25pm
Powerful image and statement. Well seen and captured.
22 Mar 2009 2:41pm

Great shot and rises interest about the exhibit. I was just about to ask what`s inside but then read your response to PJ and realized you have not seen it yet. Lately there has been a lot of display in the art world about the mannequins. Mostly photography, but please go and see if this is any other and share. 'Plastic people' are very intriguing. I almost feel as when everyone goes to sleep at night they come to life and have some interesting action going on.
22 Mar 2009 3:58pm
I second the urge to go see . . there is a haunting, lost look to these two which is the response-opposite of what we would normally see 'displayed'. Really makes me wonder what it's all about. Fascinating and engaging shot.
22 Mar 2009 4:05pm
A very interesting duet.
22 Mar 2009 4:32pm
They seem to be alive ! an intriguing and fascinating image at the same time ! nice captured !
22 Mar 2009 5:07pm
Well done. Almost don't look plastic with the b/w processing.
22 Mar 2009 5:49pm
Good textures work
22 Mar 2009 6:14pm
jolie composition !
22 Mar 2009 6:33pm
Sometimes I feel like that, stcuk in place on exhbition... great shot love the mood.
22 Mar 2009 6:55pm
Stunning ... just stunning. Excellent b/w. Congrats!
22 Mar 2009 8:04pm
Excellent, I love a lot, like a film strip, without movment, just silence...
(something makes me remind about D. Lynch)
22 Mar 2009 8:54pm
yes!nice shot ...good idea :)
I like the blur effect or the traitment. It's a nice photograph.

Invasion of the skinny aliens. best...jerry
23 Mar 2009 12:23am
An excellent composition with a hint of mystery.
23 Mar 2009 12:27am
Perfect quote - the processing enhances the playfulness and mystery of this image.
23 Mar 2009 12:38am
An old expression from my youth. You have made them look as alive as plastic people did then. Interesting shot.
23 Mar 2009 2:00am
i think you've almost brought them to life!
23 Mar 2009 3:07am
That these are in an art gallery makes them even more interesting. Cool shot!
23 Mar 2009 4:10am
this scares me but i can't stop looking! :) it's amazing.
23 Mar 2009 5:21am
Superb textures and social critique ...
23 Mar 2009 11:50am
Plastic people.. in their prision... Great compo and textures.
23 Mar 2009 12:13pm
This is perfect. Of course it's all make-believe, dah-ling.
23 Mar 2009 5:45pm
The blurry effect is great, i really like it.

Are they real? I like how the bw strikes a cord at the dire state of modern human affairs. I also think of all those people who have sadly founded their lives on consumption and having to maintain a happy high only to have the root of their contentment pulled out from unde their feet. Not only does the world need a new economic paradigm, it needs a solid new philosophy of living.
24 Mar 2009 10:55pm
@Luis A. De Jesus R.: Luis, thank you for you wonderful words and thoughts. No, they are not real, they are mannequins in a display at The Vancouver Art Gallery, on the outside of the building and way up high. I really don't know what the exhibit is, but I hope to check it out this upcoming weekend.
I can't agree with you more on the state of the world and the overall and general attitude of people these days. The world needs to step back and take pause, and get a grip on what is important. Values/respect have been thrown entirely out the window and I feel for the most part it's completely out of control.
I read your comment on mannequins and wanted to let you know that I stayed 2 min. without knowing if real or unreal, I share your fascination.
The previous comment is so clever... You are so right, value and respect ........
26 Mar 2009 9:23pm
@Phototherapy: I am glad I am not the only one that lingers for several minutes at a time studying mannequins. Not to sound odd, but they are very real to me, how they become part of whatever scene they are there to create. Thanks, Charles :)
Sad what the world did to her --Marilyn Monroe.
28 Mar 2009 10:03pm
wow -- so surreal!! and i just read your volley with Luis -- i am in 100% accordance!!! but you and i have connected over issues of the same philosophical degree several times in the last near 12 months!! all the best to you!! :) x

"Not only does the world need a new economic paradigm, it needs a solid new philosophy of living."
Luis is right of course. Unfortunately, the criminals running the show like things the way they are.
