I was getting ready to ask where you were as well! Glad to see you again, Petra.

Doesn't this look like a sweet, little Dutch Boy!
Petra: Yep i have been away to long Ginnie...i was expecting to get a message from you to tell me to get my lazy bum over here and start blogging again...lol
Petra

You have done it again - I think I will have to but your entire archive into my likey's box! No surprise I guess that the vacant stare of the mannikin really appeals to me. It is as though he is gazing out on the world with a cold scruitiny that is very unsettling. Terrific Image
Petra: Thank you for your lovely comment Mike! Makes me blush...smile
Petra
Wow, very strange, gohsty, even scary picture !
Bravo !!!!
Petra: Merci Z. smile

Great use of the reflections again. If it wasn't for the plastic hair - I would have started thinking of a real boy with an intense look in the eyes.
Petra: Looking for reflections makes me view the world a very different way Louis.....I have been looked at very strange many times by people passing me by when i tried to photograph interesting ones..lol
Petra
Strange, your back and my brother Mal is back at the same time uummmm ? This is a very stricking image that demands to be looked at.

J smile
Petra: You think he is stalking me Johnny? lol

Today is the world-children-day (Unesco). This boy looks so serious and thoughtful, not like a child I wish should be! More like a ghost than a very human being, full of life and action! I think the pic intends to critisize the joyless life of so many, many children in the world, in the rich Europe too!
Petra: I did not know that today is world-children-day Philine....your comment made me think
Thanks for pointing this out!
Petra
Great unheimlich feel to this.

Reminds me of the film A.I. Artificial Inteligence and all that that signified.
