Scavenger Hunt #37 – Monochrome

Two wooden manikins. One is sitting in a wooden bowl filled with elastic bands; the other is stirring the bowl with a wooden spoon.

For the Scavenger Hunt #37, I revisited the theme I had used in Scavenger Hunt #32 – the wooden manikins are back!

One of the words was “Monochrome”, with a specific “not black&white” constraint. Since I had a manikin theme, and my manikins are wooden, well, that gives me the palette for what I’m doing. So I started gathering everything that was vaguely wooden-colored in the apartment, and tried to assemble SOMETHING. My train of thoughts when building this image was “a manikin spa” – spas do have weird treatments going on, so why not an elastic-band based one for wooden manikins! I wanted to give the impression of relaxation for the one sitting, and of attending the other for the one standing. I’ve been told it could also look like the day after a student party – and I’m not disagreeing with that 🙂

Unedited version of the previous "manikin spa" image. It is very underexposed, and there's a lot to crop in the borders of the image.
