Almost didn't enter this challenge, as I was having a hard time finding a good subject. I thought of doing something with fruit or vegetables, but I'm guessing there will be a number of those in this challenge so I wanted to stick out from the crowd.

I must admit, I did get this idea from one of the past challenges (I don't remember which once). There was a photo with a shirt and a tie, and I realized that I had a lavender shirt and green tie that would go well together. I had to iron both, as they had been sitting in my closet in a heap. Then I laid them out on the ground and made a mock knot in the tie. I messed them up a bit to make it look like they were just tossed on the ground.

Interesting title, since the shirt seems to be empty -- nobody home? :)

This tie looks vaguely familiar...

Bleh, sorry don't mean to offend but you need a stylist, those colours don't match, all the best.

I like this, it could have maybe been better if there was some volume under the shirt, but its still good. There is definitely something phallic about a tie.
