Beauty Obsession Gone Bad (Weekend Reflections # 269)

Bristol, Pennsylvania

Is there a line that separates real and fake in the quest for beauty? That was what came to my mind when I saw this plastic narcissist. I guess that's a line that I don't need to worry about crossing. :-)

I'm going on vacation so Weekend Reflections will be on auto-pilot for a few weeks!

Same here - a line I won't ever worry about crossing! One of the many things I love about New England, is that natural seems to be the norm...even the women don't mind aging! Enjoy your vacation!!

Alexa said...

And the hair and nails are just too match-matchy! :~} Thanks for the laugh, James—amuses-toi bien en vacances!

LOL, I sure won't be getting anywhere near that line. Nice shot, I like that you kept a portion of the 'real' subject in the frame. Have a great vacation.

Dina said...

Haha, a strange one! Have a great vacation, James.

Hey, my hair looks like that every morning when I get up ... and no effort, intention or money went into it. Am I cool or what? But, my hair isn't blue nor are my nails ... disappointing :(
This is a great, laughable reflection, James. Narcissist or not,. it is fun!

I had the same problem-- was that some fashionista going over the edge? Then reality kicked in.

What a creative way to illustrate this plastic narcissist... Cool reflection shot...

Enjoy your vacation...

Il manque juste le téléphone pour prendre une photo de l'instant et l'envoyer à toutes ses amis par tous les réseaux sociaux auxquels elle est inscrite, cette poupée fashion victime... ^^

That is really a excellent picture, and not only on the technical side that you obviously mastered : the symbolic is really apealing.
