Details



There are so many possibilities for a theme like "details."  I chose a detail from an exhibition of costumes at the Hartford Public Library.

Hartford Stage Company is celebrating its 50th anniversary, so they had an exhibition of costumes from plays presented over the last five decades.  This dress appeared in a play in the 1978-1979 season and again in a different play in the 1994-1995 season.

Unique choice. The theater company must have an excellent archivist.

I'm glad you got all dressed up for this post. I would never have guessed that was an arm in the first shot!

I love the detail of the elbow joint! Good one, Jack.

Kay said...

Aha! The wooden arm and it's unusual joint threw me. Very cool. A costume - what fun! Nice choice.

A creative play on the details theme. BTW, I am an average 5'7", but standing next to my Dad, who is 6'2", I am sure I seem even shorter!

JM said...

The close-up shot is amazing! Glad you posted a wider view, I would have never guessed what it looked like if you haven't.

VP said...

Sorry I skipped this theme day, my compliments for you nice and on the spot pictures!

The Hartford Stage Company must have an extensive wardrobe after all those years. How interesting the dress in your photo was used in two different plays.

Surprising detail Jack. I don't think I've seen wooden arms on a mannequin before.
