Mannequin Monday #101

Today’s addition to the planet’s largest collection of blighted mannequins, spotted near Akdeniz Caddesi in Istanbul’s Fatih neighborhood, illustrates that no matter how protected we think we are, misfortune will nonetheless find our vulnerable spots.

Or something like that. Here he is in more fuller glory.

If you missed it, the landmark Mannequin Monday #100 is here, along with a brief consideration of the project and a look at a handful of Mannequin Monday legends. Don’t miss it!


New to this weekly series?

Then I strongly encourage you to invest just a few minutes and catch up here. And here, too, with a special video presentation (rounded out by a killer soundtrack!) I put together to celebrate the Mannequin Monday project’s first year — an entirely unexpected one year anniversary. It’ll all conspire to make your Monday just a little bit better than it already is and to serve as a blunt reminder that your week will only get better from here. Again, you’re very welcome. And don’t forget to tell your friends.

By the way, this image, snapped in Istanbul, Turkey, on 25 April 2016 also serves as today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 864th (!!) straight. When you’ve got a few minutes to spare, you can check out some of those here. Enjoy!
