I wanted to do a new self portrait for this but have been laid low all week with a miserable head cold of epic proportions. I shot this at work this past week and, since it is me, it will have to do. I am still working. The reference to not working is made to my body. The Massive Hulk that it now is. Enjoy.

I like the iconic cartoony look of this, and nice title.

This is one of the best shadow images posted in quite a while. Title of "Unemployed" would also have worked, evoking worker leaving factory gates for the last time.

Nice photo, but I don't see how it matches up to the challenge 'Things that don't work anymore'.

HMMMM!!! ok A little too arty? If you are currently unemployed then that would meet the challenge, being charitable .

Reminds me of a 30's horror movie.
