AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Winter Sales

This sign in Main Street Mornington was erected by the Mornington Chamber of Commerce.
Often, the chamber helps the shopkeepers to advertise.
This particular sign intrigued me.
It represents a headless mannequin with scarf and coat, but there seems to be an "almost face" in the background.
Amazing what reflecting glass can do.

Advertising ploys
Gimmicks to push sales targets
Always so tempting

The photographer must be alert to see what is barely there.

It's hard to think of a winter sale. You're right though the reflections could fill in all kinds of weird things here.

Pat said...

Headless so a person can imagine their OWN head on the mannequin perhaps?

Scrappy Grams said...

you're right, I see it! I had to remind myself where you live when I saw the "winter sale" sign!

Lindy said...

Great capture! I can see the "almost face" too.

I still have to stop and think about seasons and where you are.
