So it’s Halloween and a time when stranger things somehow seem just a little more normal.
On the other hand there are some normal things which being somewhere they are not supposed to be seem downright strange, even disturbing.
We came across this discarded doll on the road recently while walking into Neiafu and as innocent as a lost toy might be I felt a strange chill as I lay in the middle of the road to capture this image.
The lack of clothes, the grubby grimy appearance, those purple eyebrows and other pen marks all made for a creepy scene I wondered if I should even be photographing.
I was so relieved to walk away and leave stranger things lie.
Halloween or not, give me pumpkins, black cats, ghosts, skeletons or witches any day!
