All alone!


I'm not sure what this is - some kind of child's toy. It was sitting all alone on a low beat-up wood rail between two old buildings in downtown Ocala. Why it was there and who put it there, I have no idea.

There's something a little eerie about those wild-eyed Disney creatures. Have you checked to make sure it didn't follow you home?

Well now you've kicked my imagination into high gear...and I was just getting ready to go to sleep. Now I'll be thinking about this all night.

It's serendipity for you; someone knows about you and horses (even unicorns!).

has an aura of poignancy

Sherry Stewart said...

Its an attention getter tho..lol!!

Bibi said...

I always want to imagine who left it there and why...will someone come back, if it has been lost?

tapirgal said...

Maybe they'll come back for it. If they read your blog, at least they'll know where to find it :)

Lovely photo, especially the burgundy background.

A child left this by mistake, don't you think?

I like that RR tie poking out right next to it, showing its out of place.

I like the contrast of the garish colors of the toy, with the sober reddish brown background,

Hmmm. I'm thinking there's actually a camera and listening device inside and Mickey is wondering who you are and why you are so curious.

Awww, it rolled there by itself and got lost. I wouldn't mess with it though---it's best left alone. MB

I love the background, but also how the colors of the toy "pop" out. Nice positioning, as well (off-center).

It makes a better photo than a toy, in my opinion.

Lois said...

It appears to be in good shape! I like the composition of this photo.

Maybe it's a psychological experiment. There might have been a hidden camera somewhere to catch people's reactions!

I wonder if some little child is missing this toy right about now.
But it makes an interesting picture.

JM said...

Great find and photo! was the carousel music that caught your attention? :-)))

Daryl said...

The Borrowers likely left it til they could get help moving it .. its a nightlight .. it plays music as it turns ...

Nice eye on this lovely capture of textures and color.

I love this whole. scene. A lone toy in a back drop of wood, brick, and mortar.

It speaks.... but I am not sure yet what it is saying..... maybe "I'm lost.... come find me".

I like it.

I was out of the blog world for quite some time and I must say I'm glad to be here seeing you posts again!

Nice contrast of colors. The misplaced toy now has a wonderful place to fit in: your creative blog. Keep it up!^^

It can cuddle up to that rebar!

Somebody must have cried when he could not find it again...
