Vikipedia: Hollow Ween

A recent walk through the Atlantic Station has landed me a great opportunity. Funny, but the scenario was very similar to my last year's Halloween picture: a window with a dummy and a reflection of the building across the street.

And again, it was a matter of technique to find a proper angle to frame the skull into a reflected window.

You keep interesting company, VZ smile This is a very thoughtful Halloween shot!
vz-nostalgia: Let us see what next year's scary thing will join my interesting company, Martin. Hope it's not Sarah Palin. smile

Saw your 'scary' count from Transylvania......wink
Halloween seems to be a lot of scary fun, it is getting 'here' too, I doubt if we will ever get the 'spirit' with it too?
I have something with sculls, for some strange reason I always wanted one on my desk???
Happy Halloween....hope you saved the Dracula teeth from last year..gringrin
ooohhh, almost forgot, great picture....
vz-nostalgia: you always wanted to have a skull on your desk? Damn. I need to flip through my old copy of Sigmund Freud's volume to see a hidden meaning of that. I bet he'll tie it to something that happened to you in your childhood. smile
Your picture sums it all up very nicely Viktor
vz-nostalgia: It sums it up to what, Chris?
Very good Viktor. Much as I don't like Halloween, this is a good picture.
vz-nostalgia: there is nothing wrong to say "booo" once a year, Bill. The plus is you'll have all the leftover chocolate all to yourself. smile

vz-nostalgia: I bet, if Eugene Atget got a choice: to be resurrected to photograph the Atlantic Station or to stay in his grave, he'd say: "Thanks, but no thanks" and stayed six feet under. smile
excellent shot Victor, have a goodnight fellasmile
vz-nostalgia: you must be kidding, Tim. Wishing me a good night with a picture like this. smile
vz-nostalgia: Well, there are a lot of things, good and bad, that were imported from the US by many countries around the world throughout the years, Bill, from rock'n'roll to Hollywood movies. Life is a dynamic thing, some cultures and languages disappear, others get diluted. For years I've been watching how French government legislatively guards French language from the influence of the English language to no avail. People will still use the words that define their thoughts/feelings better, and if it happens to be an English word, so be it.
Regarding being an American. I like chocolate, but I don't want to be one either. smile Seriously, that is such a broad brush to paint the whole nation. Americans come in all "shapes and colors", not much different from other countries, I suppose. Despite all its flaws, this country still attracts hundreds of thousands of immigrants from around the world and I think this fact alone speaks volumes. smile

Sarah Maverick has a fine set of teeth, but the diet might have been a little overdone.

Just a few more days, VZ, and you can get off the political theme. [grin]
vz-nostalgia: Sarah "The Maverick"...Damn, I'm so charged up, it will take me some time to cool off, Ray. smile

You really have to concentrate on this one, Viktor! WOW! You did good!

That's one of the things I most remember about our walk around your office awhile back...all the mirrored windows everywhere. A photographer's paradise!
vz-nostalgia: a paradise indeed, for those who can see it, Ms. Ginnie. smile

For me, your angle does more than just frame the skull - it really adds to the drama. Great technique and conversion.

Not sure what's happened to the poor chaps left hand though (although, admittedly, my knowledge of anatomy isn't great, but I don't see any recognisable bones of the hand or arm there...)
vz-nostalgia: I'll forward your concerns about a screwed up anatomy of the poor chap to the store window design department, Harv. smile
