dirty lips – terra cotta


dirty lips, originally uploaded by Big DumpTruck.

My sister has terra cotta planters shaped like heads. So she’s got a head with chives growing out of it. (They make lovely hair). I took a picture of one, but when I went to process it in Lightroom, I realized that the lips were the most interesting part of the photo, because of the dirt on them. The longer I looked at the photo, the more “real” the lips looked to me.

Anyhoo, thought I’d share this one from my flickr pool with you.

    When I first glanced at the picture I thought you were documenting leprosy! Kind of a freaky looking planter, but a great picture.

    That is a little bit creepy. I thought it was Jr. buried in the sand on first glance. Then I thought it was a wax head on the ground.

    Sorry I find the head planter’s a bit gross… esp with the decapitated look of it. Take Care Jerry
