Well I did cut off the head...also everything else except part of one leg. That's my thigh & part of a restaurant table, shot accidentally with my iPhone, blurred by camera movement. I used PP to emphasize the shadows, shapes, & lines which attracted my eye to this shot right away.

I am amused to see so many shots in this challenge with just the head cut off & no apparent attempt to make the shot interesting.

YAY! I got last place with a good abstract! I'm very pleased. Thanks for the fantasy hang, 21.gif posthumous now I am double-dog happy.

Congrats on the fantasy bling, very appropriate for the ambiguity and innocence. Beats me why those myopic ones even bother to comment (not you Lydia!), but that's me exercising my biased democratic right.

provocative abstract that's not really abstract at all. it's quite alive.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery

I like this image, because of the simple good design and geometry. There is no head, but it doesn't seem to meet the challenge very well, because there's no body either, just a little glimpse of leg.

I could take this in a couple of ways. I'll keep my mind above the table, though. Makes for a wonderful abstract, particularly the plaid shorts (or at least what I see as plaid shorts...) And no one said how much of the head one had to cut off, just that there was to be a person, and to crop off their head. Check, and check.

Uhhh... not working for me. I'm sorry.

I want to see a person... so I can see that... there's not a head.
