And he shall snatch on the right hand and be hungry..
Isaiah: 9:10

The skeleton scares
And he also dares
To snatch a Kodak
Moment behind my back.

Today it is raining and I decided to use a SP that I did two days ago. I am reading, "The Land Remembers" by Ben Logan...enjoying the beautiful day sitting on a log when who should sneak up on me but the mean skeleton who not only stole my Kodak Easy Share DX7590 camera on the tripod, but shot my picture besides...How dare he!!! Luckily he had poor eye sight as he didn't see my better camera, the Nikon 40 DX doing a self timer of this entire event and catching the crime in the act:) Notice how hungry this sneaky thief looks..he's nothing but skin and bones!:) Maybe he needs a little Meta (meat) to fatten him up:) I should explain how I put this together. A mannequin head with a skeleton mask is resting on a dress form and I wrapped a scarf around its neck to hold it together. The skeletal gloves are tied on to the jacket with yarn. Luckily the whole thing didn't tip over and fall apart...:) I originally bought the mask to put on my face for a photo shoot but I couldn't stand the latex smell of it..and felt suffocated when I put it on so had to improvise.

    Thank you everyone..Michael .I think he could turn into anything his heart desires (if he has one that is:)) I think first all he would need to go to the Orthodontist to get his fangs straightened before playing Santa. LOL

    Andrea, you have outdone yourself. This is so creative...and funny too. You should have this on a wall as a conversation piece. Excellent work. I love it.
