What a challenging subject we were prompted to photograph this week: mischief. I kept thinking back to photos that conveyed mischief to me, and it seemed they all happened naturally (a devilish look captured on a child’s face, or a puppy getting into something it shouldn’t). Before I knew it, the week was almost up and I needed something to photograph. Having no immediate access to a puppy or child, I turned to something childish – my old toy box that my niece and nephew bring out everytime they visit. As I poured through the box of old favorites, I began to see a trend. And so my inspiration was born.
There’s one in every group.
In the Rescue Rangers, it was Dale:
For the McDonald’s Fry Guys, this blue dude:
Waldo was always disguised and hiding IN a group:
These McDonald’s Transformer Fries are no doubt up to something:
And from what I can remember, Red was the wild and crazy Fraggle:
Yes, there’s one in every group. I chose a shallow depth of field in most of the pictures to pull your attention to the mischievous one in the group. I like the choice, since the photos are taken in character “families” you can deduce who/what the others in the background are .. if you are familiar with 80’s nostalgia that is.
