Mannequins do not live by the rules of the people - they are in their own world. The appearance varies depending on the clothes - only the face remains the same. Of course we look at mannequins when they change clothes or be otherwise arranged. Here it goes haywire.
Anyway, I photographed the scene.

Another superb street capture! You always manage to find highly interesting pictures, just by walking around. This is a very fine collection of body parts, it is also well composed and perfectly balanced.

complimenti per questo ottima elaborazione in bianco e nero di una composizione estremamente raffinata ed impreziosita da una illuminazione eccellente.
Un soggetto che la mancanza di colore ha valorizzato ampiamente rendendo ben evidenti le infinite sfumature di luce e di ombra che accarezzano i manichini.
Un ottimo lavoro.
Ciao e buona domenica

Great capture of this group of mannequins in a state of disarray. Excellent use of black an white to heighten the impact. Fine technical presentation. Well seen.

namaste Wolfgang, another interesting capture... This time with these mannequins. Excellent clarity, razor sharp, great presentation in monochrome. Superb shot. Tfs.

It looks vaguely like a Dali painting, I think!
I like the tonality and slightly sepia treatment, plus excellent control of the highlights. One of the figures at least has a sense of decency. Well seen and beautifully presented.
A symbol of broken-down civilisation?

una vetrina molto curiosa, ottimamente fotografata con l'ottima scelta del b&w.
Sempre alla ricerca di particolari originali tratti dalla vita di tutti i giorni.

Really artistic outcome!

a superb picture, so rich in content and interest, excellently defined and clear but also full of mystery. The monochrome treatment has produced a mesmerizing result and I love the atmospheric effect and the role of the shadows and the reflections. The sleek textures are fascinating. The scene brings to mind Helmut Newton's work. A marvellous photo, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

Guten Tag Wolfgang,
I like this excellent monochrome photo, superb light and clarity, nice arrangement in vertical format, very good viewpoint. And the content is fabulous. Sehr gute Foto.

Yes, I like this slightly anarchic collection of plastic body parts! And the mask is an added bit of weirdness. As ever, the monochrome treatment is appropriate.

Hello Wolfgang, excellent photography of this interesting composition with mannequins, very well captured in this interesting image, (talk about the world of mannequins, but those who copy their dress are humans), with good sharpness, light and quality. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Hello dear friend Wolfgang
Exhibited a very beautiful view. Exposure and contrast are very good.

haha, funny note indeed :)
its strange how these mannequins appear in a photo, i guess we just don't notice them enough in real life as we ignore them.
has a strange feeling and mood to the scene, kinda spooky, but i like it
