Making Life Out Of Nothing At All

Forlorn and forsaken. An abandoned doll lying dejected in an abandoned house. This was a picture I took of a deserted squatter colony awaiting demolition to make way for a mall.

I was stunned by the posture and the position of the limbs. It was like a helpless human lying in bed, hoping that it was all a bad dream. Sometimes, urbex subjects encountered are perplexing. Was the doll left behind in a hurry? Was it a heartbreaking separation for some kid?

We may never know but I like it when inanimate objects convey mystery and stir emotions. It makes for a more powerful image.
