i still get a buzz out of seeing these things.  every dummy is a step closer to me actually doing an exhibition of my dummy photos.

why did I ever doubt they’d be nothing to photo over this end of the planet ?

i had a day off work yesterday to go to Bath to watch some photos being assessed (not my own this time) which was really interested.  on the way i saw this dummy which i took to be a positive sign !

the security guard in the background asked me what i was doing.  so i told him.  this was possibly my most dangerous dummy photo so far as i nearly got squashed by a number of shoppers who were driving their trolleys at speed towards the just opened portcullis

of all the photos i take, i find people stare at me most when taking pictures of dummies

but that’s probably because they are so rare i spend longer than i usually do taking pictures to make sure the dummy is in focus

and to get a nice background (like this yellow t-shirt or the wall of legs on the top picture)

the fallen dummy

when i went to work this morning this dummy was on a pillar near the train station awaiting rediscovery.  12 hours later when i got back it was on the floor snout down.  i suspect it’s is less likely to be retrieved in this orientation

whilst out on a photoshoot with jen and leo (oooh, look at me!) i was delighted to find this dummy

Leo had asked me earlier what kinds of things i usually photograph.  And there waiting for us was one of my favourite subjects !
