Watching the shoppers in Kristiansand, Norway.


This Monochrome concept came from Aileni at The Monochrome Maniacs

That is a good catch.
The strong and silent types.

Bryan said...

They are the perfect watchers...never moving, never blinking.

Aileni said...

At present I am getting films commercially processed. I scan both negative and print.
Virtually all previous pics were all my own work back in the Seventies.

Tanvi said...

these are the only ones who give a strong competition to the gatekeepers in UK...hahaha...

Dina ... UK said...

I think they must have seen Madusa...very pale and white.

Abe Lincoln said...

Dressing dummies was one of the first real paying jobs I had. These guys look like cousins.

Anne-Berit said...

Har jo ikke rare mulighetene til å dra på smilebåndet de to der nei.Fint bilde som passet godt i s/hv.
Ha en fin dag!

Ida said...

Om de bare kunne underholdes, så hadde de oppdaget et stort mangfold av mennesker som gikk forbi.
Akkurat som i sangen av May Britt Andersen. "Sett deg ned på en benk en times tid, og se på alle rare folk som går forbi." ;)
Så, neste gang du fotograferer en benk også, så må du love meg å sette deg ned etterpå, for å underholdes.... ;)
Flott bilde!

Takk for gode ord og forståelse.
Setter pris på det!

Ønsker deg en riktig god søndag. :)

Ah, if they were the only ones watching us as we wander the markets.

Prospero said...

I am reluctantly reminded of Kraftwerk`s "Showroom Dummies" which occasionally, whimsically starts playing in my head. Great monochrome subject.

Scary... i grunn ser dem litt skumle ut når du viser det på denne måten. Men kult bilde!!!

Stilig portrettbilde av de stive karene fra det blide sørland :)

A very modern couple in a modern light.

Clueless in Boston said...

One with makeup, one without. Great capture.

Barbara Martin said...

Excellent dark and light effect, RuneE.

Robin said...

They almost mirror each other, the one with the heavy brow and lashes, the other ghostly white.

Nice capture.

Greyscale Territory said...

Love the yin and yang of these personalities in stone. Especially love the contrast of eyes and whitened out eyes. Fantastic shot in monochrome!

Daryl said...

Nice that they are keeping an eye on things, fun shot!

Marie Reed said...

What a neat shot! I like how the shadows dance on this mannequin!

Starnitesky said...

Very serious expressions.

Thanks for visiting my bench, I have not been blogging lately so I didn't know you were doing a theme on benches, I'm glad you liked my natural one, although it is not very comfortable to sit on.

napaboaniya said...

They're are the envy of some people, forever with great changes of clothes by other people :)

Kate said...

Your posts are always refreshingly original!

camerapatty said...

Very sharp and crisp details. However did you get your subject to pose so long for you to acquire this shot? :) LOL
Wishing you a scent-sational Monochrome Weekly!
