These are so fun, Linda! And your creativity with them makes them so much more so. Keep at it, it will be a great series.

I always shoot some mannequins when I'm in New Orleans. We don't really have shops with storefronts here, so I have to wait till I get a decent target. As you proved in the first one, including the reflections is sometimes tricky but can add to the fun and give you more options for creativity (Jim Hill taught me this about store windows) I may have to go retrieve one of my old ones.

Thank you Minnie! I'm so glad you found the series enjoyable, and that you're inspired to revisit some of your own favorites. I hope we'll get to see them. This is probably the only storefront in Yakima that is interesting enough to photograph, lol.

I don't know Steve, it could get a little too racy for kids - we'll have to see what the next chapter brings :D

You don't need no collaborator. Yer doin' fine. :D

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
