That's cheered me right up tonight Donna....



Must be a lost shoe though...
cybers

Amazing.. I go for lost shoe as the other option is too damn scary.
dmk

that's interesting the women i have shown this image to have thought abuction
i wonder why that is  
possibly because we somehow think our children are never far from danger
cybers

Probably cub protection mode ... but like i said my answer was only the more palatable
dmk

yea probably
if i hadn't asked the question i wonder if you boys would have responded differently
fastnet

I posted my answer because I didn't think you would post abduction pics.........

But it could be either with just that pic.....
cybers

I think it could work as either or ...
As an ad campaign on child safety i think its a striking image but from an artistic point of view lost shoe works better and makes people less uneasy with the concept. No one likes to consider missing children. Do the mothers automatically think blagged wean or is the question asked of them too ?

Just curious as to a pattern of thought.
dmk

yes it's all very innocent & shot in local woods
a pair of shoes bought from a charity shop & my man being my model for the day

A wee bit off topic but we saw a mother who had lost her child in East Kilbride yesterday.

Poor woman was in hysterics but thankfully the staff at new look took great care of the missing wean and they were reunited later.

I would hate to be in that poor womans position at the tme...
dmk

the women that saw this shot initially hadn't been asked the question
one of them said it caused her pain to look at it (maybe i'm just a bad togger lol) as she had a child of similar age & had automatically thought of the worst scenario

my youngest son when he saw just asked why i never take happy pictures ........oh dear lol

dreadful .....me too

last year i found a wee girl about 2/3 running around the beach in ayr in a total panic she had lost her mammy
as i approached the wee yin a man was nearby and he just looked at me helplessly
he wanted to help the wee girl but was obviously too frightened to approach her incase people thought the worse
i felt sorry for him
a sad sign of the times we live in

Totally agree donna.

If I was in the same postion without my wife being present i would probably be the same.

Love your sons comment       made me laugh out loud

Lost kids are a constant worry seen a few at the car boots with the wife and feel totally helpless like you say.
dmk

yep my man said the same thing but isn't that dreadful that you have been made to feel that way
what would have happened to that wee girl if i hadn't showed up at that moment =[

yea my son is always on at me
says i make sick pics only because one time he saw that i was pricking my thumb cos i needed blood for a shot lol

The helpless guy would have bundled her into his Transit with his clown mask on... he was helpless cos you got there first ....

See its too easy to caste aspersions to motive  
dmk

behave you ;p

Doog Doog

Rather 'dark' and emotive...
