I went out a few weekends ago on a vintage/antique photowalk. Denver has a great stretch of road affectionately referred to as "Antique Row," where you can find antiques to quench any vintage thirst. I was hoping to find some film cameras, but alas, there were none to be found.

That's not to say that my outing was unsuccessful. I did come across a unique decor item crafted solely of antique, creepy doll heads. Which I photographed with great glee. As if they aren't creepy enough, I went for some post processing that really upped the nightmare factor.

Enjoy! :laugh1:

Each photo has a degree of creepiness, Melissa. However, I really like the last one, as the creep factor is especially high. Nice work!

There have been a good number of them in the Photo Association thread over the years. His doll heads tend to be damaged and mounted on spikes or posts or hanging on trees.
I used to have 3 heads to work with, it's now down to one. And every time it gets shot, there is less to work with. A visit to the thrift store might be needed.

Sometimes they have Jaspar in them as an added Bonus ... although to be fair Jaspar isn't damaged or hanging off a tree.

Maybe we could just turn this into the creepy doll head thread. I too have a love of finding and shooting these things.

I actually bought this bag of them, thinking I'll pose them for a later shoot:
