Discarded Ken

Spotted this poor Ken among the leaves on my way to the market on Sunday.

Today marks one month since I joined shutterchance, and I've already learned so much - thanks for your comments and tips!

Ohhhh, poor Ken. Doesn't look like he can be salvaged and sold on eBay! Hmmmm. I wonder what the story is behind that....
Lesley Trites: Hmm, yes, I bet there is quite an interesting story behind this. Might be a bit twisted... not sure how Ken got damaged like that.

This is a good shot Lesley, nice composition and good use of dof (I like it that the leg is blurred) concentrating on those forlorn eyes. Into my likeys ;o)
Lesley Trites: Thanks Mike! I was trying for a shallower dof, glad you think it worked.
Poor Ken: I feel like this sometimes
Lesley Trites: Hmm, yes, know what you mean... Thanks for stopping by, Chris.
Like this a lot - it's quite disturbing, which is good. His eyes are really quite unnerving. Glad his modesty is preserved by the leaves!

Lesley Trites: Thanks Ingrid. Yes, I found this a bit disturbing when I saw it; glad it came through in the shot.

Cool shot. The strategically placed leaf to protect his dignity.
