The inflatable duckling we bought for Iggy for his birthday is deflating. Slowly losing its helium-based life force it now hangs eerily upside-down from our ceiling.

When we first bought it, I kept going on about how it reminded me of one of my favourite photographic works by Harry Crosby - Apparition.

I like that it's funny, weird, atmospheric and a little spooky. Excuse the text bleeding through the image, that was the best scan I could manage. The scan is taken from 'In Transition - A Paris Anthology' [Amazon].

This morning I photographed the duckling in all of its upside down glory, flipped it and gave it a slight Apparition-ation.
