Forgotten Playmate by slephoto Forgotten Playmate by slephoto
Never let the ADHD kids bury you alive, they might forget they left you there. :)
This one is dedicated to *Ptollemy, she inspired it.
Buried model is Jaden Starr ([link]). Kids in the photo are neighborhood boys shot with the permission of their parents, who were there & supervising.

More of Jaden can be found here.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-05-23
Not all horrific images and ideas have to include blood, and this take on a playground isn't exactly what you would consider 'safe, family fun'. Interestingly shot, you almost overlook the best part of the piece - absolutely not something I would expect from a park at all! Hauntingly brilliant and just the right amount of atmosphere.

Oh wow I really love this!!! The subject of playground bullying is pretty common, but you've definitely taken it into a new, twisted direction and I love it. The subtly is what really sets it off. Great job to both you and Jaden, and congrats on the DD! <3

Jaden's a girl. :) And yes, she is. She's gone cliff-climbing, horseback riding, paragliding, and more naked for photos before.
