  1. I look at both sides of the story says:

    A photograph of someone else’s artwork (in the case, the mannequins in the display window) isn’t a good photograph.

    If I took a photo of the Mona Lisa, does that mean I took a great photo?

    • El_Fez says:

      Potentially, yes. Here’s a shot from a friend of mine – the cute couple in front of the Mona Lisa makes the shot.

      Are you saying he shouldn’t have submitted the photo, thus denying me with the joy of it?

    • ktorster says:

      Are store displays art in that sense?

    • Rebecca K-S says:

      Except there’s more to that photo than just “two mannequins in a window.” I mean, I still agree it isn’t amazing, but the reflections and colors make it at least interesting to me.

      The line of mannequin butts, though. That is high art. (Really, though, I admire whoever got jeans that tight on that many mannequins. I’ve dressed them before and they are a bitch to dress.)

      • KyBash says:

        The trick is to put cheap pantyhose on them first. The jeans slide right on. Then you cut the pantyhose just above the hem of the pants.

    I want that pile of toys. Also the kid with the car is hilarious.
