Having Fun with Photos
The featured knitting projects are called Wanda's Four-For-One. Basically, a similar pattern can make a wash cloth, a baby blanket, a head scarf and a shawl. It's always a challenge to take an interesting photo. Well, except when I'm here and have my doll model.
I decided to have her wear the head scarf and to take the picture on the front porch. As you can see she is quite a large doll, you could say almost human sized. As I was dragging her outside and and moving her around, I had a thought of how it all might look someone in the building across the street. The all have front balcony's and it was a nice day and someone easily could have been sitting outside enjoying the breezy evening.
And then I began to imagine a Molly Pink moment. Someone would have seen what was going on and thought that Molly was either abusing someone or maybe trying to kill them. Either way there would have been cops involved. I imagined a sharp knock at the door and a deep voice announcing they were the police and I was to open up. And then I laughed thinking of the look on their faces as they looked around for the victim and saw the doll.
She has caused a few problems. I left her positioned looking out through the door to the front porch and after I went home, I got a frantic call from my neighbor saying that she thought someone was in my apartment.
The really funny part is that when my mother got her and showed her to me, I didn't like her and now she's become one of my favorites. I know that my mother would love that I was using her as a model.
Tomorrow I am going to set up a photo shoot of her using the wash cloth.
