I shot this in Washington Square Park in NYC. The marionette is a replica of the woman feeding the squirrel (Doris). I tried several full shots to show the remarkable resemblance which is stunning but there was too much information to absorb and opted for this tight crop.

Thanks to Steve Hill who encouraged me to lie down on the pigeon poop ....
just get the shot! This was published on 1x but if I hit 6 on DP I will be flabbergasted and really happy.

When I first saw this entry, I completely dismissed it. In my second pass through I realized how ridiculously good it is. The only problem, there's another image that I think is vastly superior to every other entry in this challenge, so I awarded this with an eight (gave no nines this challenge).

It's weird, this isn't anything I'd ever hang on my wall, or even get printed, but it awesomeness level is up there.

Now that's an interesting shot.

Irresistibly odd.
