Headless with ladder

A local department store is closing. I heard through the grapevine that all their mannequins were lined up on the second floor, so of course I had to explore. The male mannequins were spread along the edges of "greatly reduced" sale items. I snapped this and a few others. The female mannequins were in another section, behind some yellow and black "caution" tape. I headed over there and began snapping when a manager came out, and, while sympathetic to my interest in shooting, explained that photos in the store were against company policy. Bummer. I think I will share one more male, but did not manage to get any post-worthy female.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

We need females. The world cannot be managed by males alone. The head is often useless.

The one looks pretty well built! A great image! Like who would really care if you took pictures of mannequins in a store that was closing!

@Elaine Hancock: Well, when a petty official or manager has little power, the power to say "NO" can be irresistible.
