Photo Challenge #33 / Texture

20180805ma_4042“Dorothy” / Theme: Texture

A little about this photo…

This is my grandmother’s doll, Dorothy. She got her when she was 6 years old, after having her appendix out. Dorothy was a gift from the ladies in her father’s office, which I think was pretty generous considering that this would have been during the Great Depression.

I’ve always been fascinated by the lines on Dorothy’s face. Of course, these weren’t there back in the 1930s. It’s almost like Dorothy’s aged, along with my grandma. Those lines on her face are as beautiful as the wrinkles on my own grandma’s face. (Yes, I do think wrinkles can be beautiful!)


THIS WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE is posted every Saturday. Please join us in posting your own photos with #2018picoftheweek

  1. Great photo and I like how you connect the lines on the doll to the wrinkles on your grandmother’s face to show that the toy too has aged.
    However, on another note, seeing old dolls (in pics or otherwise) tend to creep me out a little. I watched too many horror movies as a kid about haunted dolls.
