Mannequin Monday #53 (Happy Anniversary Edition)

How quickly they grow.

Mannequin Monday, an attempt to create the planet’s largest repository of blighted mannequins, turns one tomorrow. Not bad considering I didn’t think it would last more than a month or two. Stop by later for some cake and a shot of aguadiente.

Above, the anniversary couple, snapped last month in Quito, Ecuador, who encapsulate best what this project is all about. And below, an anniversary presentation of Year One, a chance to relive every exciting moment of each Monday morning of the year gone by with images from from 22 cities in 16 countries:

Puerto Lopez, Ecuador; Quito, Ecuador; La Paz, Bolivia; Potosi, Bolivia; Popayan, Colombia ; Istanbul, Turkey; Stockholm, Sweden; Menton, France; Zagreb, Croatia; Zurich, Switzerland; Lima, Peru; Shanghai, China; Marrakech, Morocco; Cusco, Peru; Cartagena, Colombia; Piran, Slovenia; Ljubljana, Slovenia; Puerto Varas, Chile; Doha, Qatar; Rijeka, Croatia; Otavalo, Ecuador; and Madrid, Spain.

It’s worth the effort just for the splendid soundtrack, Beautiful Things Happen by Oblivian Substanshall. I couldn’t think of a tune more appropriate.

Enjoy the show, thanks for checking in each week, and as always, feel free to share.
