Travel theme: Short

This mildly disturbing photograph was taken at Giusti Giardino, Verona.  I was fortunate enough to snatch a few images from someone else’s photo shoot; catching the models off guard being potentially more interesting than the professionally posed versions.  I promise this owes nothing to Photoshop but there are more models in this photograph than at first seems apparent – four in costume and one small walk-on part by a short, naked, bit-part player. Continuing my recent ‘Do you see what I see theme, can you spot the uninvited guest appearance from the Addams Family member?  Click on the image to enlarge and get the full effect:

Meanwhile, in the centre of Verona, the ever-vigilant local policeman takes a short break prior to an imminent arrest, handcuffs at the ready:

    Very good, so Hand exists in the real world, should we be afraid??!!! 🙂

    ‘Dedos!’ The name we use in our house for ‘the hand’ we missed you!

    “Thing” on her shoulder!

    The Hand (of Death?) tapping her shoulder?

      Yup, the very same 🙂 I think it is time I gave the creepy stuff a rest.

    It all looks like good ‘armless fun!

    By the way, that’s a young Sacha Distel in the background (oh, dear – showing my age 😉 ).

      Enough to make you laugh your head off 🙂
      Trouble is, I remember good old Sacha only too well 😦

      • Meanderer · November 20, 2013

        Yes – I remember ‘im well – along with Charles Aznavour (sp?) and the chap from the Cointreau advert 🙂

    amicalement, Mélanie

    Short and invisible! I loved the image blown up – brilliant – and i too like the off-pose photos. I’m interested though – did you see the hand before you took the shot? I ask because sometimes I take a shot that pleases me and then find, serendipitously, that there is more to the picture than I had seen with the naked eye. 🙂

      Many thanks – I confess I didn’t notice the hand until I looked on a PC screen and then thought it spoiled the image so removed it with Photoshop. She was a pretty girl but that hand is not very attractive – easy to believe it is not hers :-).

    I love both photographs-but the top one is wonderfully eerie-nice work!

    • northumbrianlight · December 19, 2013

      Many thanks, that hand definitely does not belong to that person 🙂
