Sideshow – A Photograph

“I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”
– Ray Bradbury

Doll Face - Jennifer Allison
Sideshow – Jennifer Allison














I spent the last weekend in Friday Harbor, in the San Juan Islands.  As always I brought my little camera and snapped a ton of photos.  We traveled by boat and moored up right inside of the Harbor.  Anyone who’s from the Northwest knows that the San Juan Islands can be cloudy and brisk, even in the summertime.  We, however, were greeted with the most amazing sunshine, warm breeze and calm seas.

Friday Harbor is a quaint little town full of fish houses, trinket shops and expensive clothing boutiques.  The ferry-boats come right into town and bring lots of income for the town with them.  I must’ve taken twenty photos just of the ferries.

And yet…I found this Doll Face photo one of the more interesting.  For someone who gets the willies from old dolls, I sure do take a ton of photos of them.  While I should be posting some serene photo of the Harbor or a passing ferry-boat, here I go again with the sideshow creepers.

    Thanks a lot. We have dolls in the house and I had to move some of them because your photo is exactly what I see. But, I laughed after reading this…combined with the Ray Bradbury quote.
