When I posted the two consecutive mannequin shots last week I did wonder whether there was any merit in posting similar images back to back – after all, one of the defining features of a lot of photoblogs is variety. But I do think that it’s worth doing, when possible, because it’s otherwise you rarely get your images compared with each other; i.e. comments are focussed on a single image rather than, for example, the specific technique employed and how successfully it was executed. Anyway, that’s my excuse ;-)

As for this shot: it was taken in the same metal surface as yesterday’s image and on the whole I think I prefer this one – mostly because I think the mood is a little darker and there’s a bit more human interest.
