While strolling down the sidewalk with a few friends on some busy street in Victoria, we came across this amazing scene.
Naturally, we took a photo with my high tech mobile media device. In this photo, we have a whitish splatter of what appears to be barf accompanied by a bright pink child’s doll. The two clash with one another to the highest degree. I really enjoy looking at this photo. The doll is so bright, innocent and angelic, yet it is abandoned in the street next to a putrid mess, face down with a few locks of platinum blond hair flowing out the side. The barf on the other hand, is absolutely vile. Looking at it for prolonged periods of time turns my face to a grimace and induces a nauseated feeling, but I also can’t help but appreciate it’s elegance. The radius of the splatter is huge, indicating that the vomit hit with a considerable force. I would suspect that the barfer incurred a fair bit of splash back. I also can’t help but notice that the barf kind of looks like a puffy cloud, like one of those ones you could make shapes out of. I see a great warrior emerging from a cloud of smoke with sunlight glistening off his armor. What do you see?
I sometimes wonder what came first, the barf or the doll. I like to think neither, and that they are directly related to one another. Maybe a child violently vomited and in the process dropped the doll next to the pile. The mother of the child, overly concerned with germs, insisted that the child leave the doll. The child breaks out in tears and screams while the evil caregiver drags her away. The possibilities are endless.
