Itching Image: Lost Expectation

One  way to create an Itching Image is to substitute one object for another. Or one subject for an object. A human being for a thing.

In this picture you substitute a man with a musical instrument, but you keep them standing in love position (whatever that might be). I am sure you know what I mean.

He only has one eye and is rather clumsily built. His hands pocketed as if he doesn’t really care.

It is a case of lost expectations. That is what we will call it. You expect something, but you get something else.

I am not sure that this picture works, actually. You tell me. It is sometimes difficult to see if pictures, that you have taken yourself, include the suggestions that you think they do. When you work on own material images get so familiar that they loose meaning and you must really strain yourself to grasp what a more spontaneous reading could be. If that is possible at all. So, you tell me.

Not that it is very important if this image works or not. I am sure that I will be able to make the point anyway. The point is substitution.

That’s all for lost expectation. Have a good day.
