Given yesterday’s uplifting ‘No’ vote in Greece, I was a little saddened to find that this image comprises half of my Greek mannequin photo collection. Strictly speaking, it fits its mission, as the latest addition to the planet’s largest depository of blighted mannequins, quite well. Abandoned, bruised and forlorn, it’s a mess. I just hope it’s not symbolic of things to come.
This unfortunate thing was spotted during a drive around the island of Syros back in November 2008. If it’s at all feasible, I highly recommend the Cyclades in last fall –it’s definitely off-season, no crowds to speak of, but still warm enough to be thoroughly enjoyable.
New to this weekly series? Really? Then I cordially invite you take a few minutes to catch up here. And here too with a special video presentation of the project’s first year. It’ll make your Monday a whole lot better than the last one, and gleefully remind your week can only get better.
By the way, this image also serves as today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 539th (!!) straight. When you’ve got a few minutes to spare, you can browse some of those here. Enjoy!
