Day 77 (September 19th, 2010)
I know there's been a bit of a delay with these last few photos, I've been feeling a bit... I believe the medical term is "bleach". But, starting to feel better now, so time to get back to the photo goodness! And trust me when I say, its for the best that I have not been taking any pictures of anything these last few days. Unless I was doing some sort of "Exorcist" retrospective, it wouldn't have been a good thing.
This is another photo from Chinatown (in San Francisco). I love frogs (almost as much as chickens and ducks!), and when I see them I just have to photo them. These guys were sitting on a giant table with all many other plastic, neon-colored, animals that would generally give any child nightmares until their mid-30s. The plastic butterflies from the underworld were too spooky to shoot ("HI! I'm a HAPPY butterfly! LOOK AT ME BEING HAPPY! Else I EAT YOUR SOUL!!!") These frogs were a god-awful neon green, so I thought I'd do them some justice and make them black and white.
I love the look they have on their faces. I'm not exactly sure what the look is trying to say, perhaps: Please, just hit me with a brick so the pain will stop. Or perhaps: We are all praying to be resurrected as Tupperware someday, then we shall be truly loved. But, its more likely they were thinking: HEY! I'm a frickin' plastic frog that looks like a green highlighter exploded all over it! I cost $2.00, so what the heck do you expect!?!"
And always remember to have your plastic pets spayed and neutered.
