"After the tea party." Dolls on roof, Portland, OR, 5 September 2011.

I’ve officially decided to start a series on abandoned dolls. I just can’t describe the emotion I feel when I find these things — nostalgia? sorrow? grief? curiosity? — but the emotions, like the dolls, fascinate me.

I didn’t realize until I got home and uploaded these to the computer that this roof actually held two dolls — the naked, sunbathing Barbie was hiding until I looked closely at the photos. Here are some close-ups.
