Latest work: "Dancing"

Just because I could... Trying to shake things up a bit, so I rummaged through my photos and began putting together a photomontage without overthinking it. No real thought, just doing. And this is the result. It's completely different from anything I've ever made, and I'm still wondering about it.

I used pictures of a building in Portland, Oregon's industrial district (the brickwork), a mannequin that was standing on a loading platform (Portland again), a portion of a vintage postcard that depicted Long Beach, California (the "dancing" sign), graffiti arrows, a parking sign from Cambridge, England, and I don't remember now where the star thingy came from.

Interested in feedback, if you care to comment.
