You know, disturbing though many of the items are that I encounter at antique shops, I definitely enjoy seeking them out.
Sometimes, though — sometimes I get more than I bargained for.
Sometimes I get a more creepy surprise in my photo than I anticipate…
This is one of those times.
In this instance, I was attempting to get a good shot of just how creepy the girl doll’s teeth are. (There’s just something that bothers me about dolls’ teeth… I think it relates back to a film I saw as a child which was about dolls that bit people, which in turn transformed those people into more biting dolls…) While I was not particularly successful in the tooth photography department, I did get an interesting shot of the old man doll peering over the girl’s shoulder. I wonder who he is supposed to be? He surely looks to be of bad temper!
