Dangerous topic Andy - could have some controversial entries. Not to mention it might make my head ache a lot.

I was thinking more of religion and politics, but your point is well made :tup:

In mixed company, the topics sex, religion and politics used to be avoided.
A golden rule, that still stands, as far as I'm concerned.

But, I'm not sure, you should ask me for 'strange ideas'!
I have a very creative, and vivid imagination at times.

My dark dolls spring from other people's imagination Andy.

When I showed a 'nostalgic/vintage' type shot of my own, now vintage, doll, I had no intention of making a 'scary picture.' And it wasn't. Not to me anyway.

It was only when people started to comment how scary it was, that I actually tried to make some really scary stuff.
And still they are not scary to me. it's something about dolls that freaks some people out.

Now you started something Andy! I'll have nothing but strange ideas from now on. Triggered by almost anything.

What about this Virgin with a need for Speed?

 :2funny:  Well spotted Reinardina :2funny:

I wonder what sort of speed? Go faster or funny stuff associated with weed - Advertising boffins need to be very careful how they word things, or have Virgin invented / launched a new product called Speed?  :-\ 

In my humble opinion, the static font and graphics used do not suggest the Internet going faster. And not a mention  ;) upon RAM

It would make a brilliant shot if the van was being pushed by pedestrians  :2funny:

My first thought was the amphetamine type of speed, but, being a virgin, she may want to speed towards something else. And as this is a family friendly site, I'll leave it at that.

I 'dug out' a recent shot, that some of you have already seen, but that would fit the theme perfectly. I think.

I apologise to you Andy, for accusing you of triggering off my 'mad' side, as it was obviously already in working order, before you set the theme.

When hunting for 'Industry' shots in the dock area of Southampton, I came across this damsel in distress; tied up and unable to get away, and thus helplessly waiting for those nasty yellow monsters to devour her.
