The theme of this week’s WordPress photo challenge is unfocused.
I’m not always terribly focused so I thought this one was a fun one to play..
One day I was trying to take a decent photo of Dummy (my drawing dummy for those who haven’t met him). Now Dummy is addicted to UFO and alien stories. He’s always making me watch UFO Hunters on the history channel and I’ve seen every episode of Star Trek and the Next Generation and the X-Files among many other space or alien shows. I swear, I don’t like them, but he gets snarky if I don’t let him have the remote.
But Dummy he lives in eternal hope that one day he may be abducted by aliens. I’ve tried to explain to him that since he is made out of wood and is only a foot tall, they’d have nowhere to microchip him. But alas and alack, he continues to dream.
I didn’t intentionally set out to make him like an alien creature. But he had no intention of letting me get away with just a nice portrait for the family gallery.
Drawing dummies can be very trying to deal with.
