    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:

  2. Great work, the creepier the better as far as I am concerned.

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

    They have that "Drank the Kool Aid" look.

    and Harvey here is the resident creepy doll head expert! :laugh1: Harvey, I've really liked your recent monochrome work - you should go back and try some black and white creepy doll photo edits.

    Nice shots, Melissa!

    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.

  8. 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.

    Yes, I believe it is the creepiest of the three. ;-)
