I wanted to buy something, because I'd been taking pictures and it seemed like fair exchange. Also, I'd begun to suspect Larry wasn't really the sinister figure I'd imagined. In a shop full of chipped fantasy and old plastic glamour I'd mistaken him for one of his monster movie dolls. I wanted to make amends. But what would it be? A Jason mask? A dusty crystal ball? An angel made of bone-china? Then I found the hands. "Musical," and "wind-up," and marked down from $25 to eight-and-change. #photoessay 3/6 #prayerhands // #everydaypeople #nightshift #serial #picturesandwords #truestories #oralhistoryoftheworld
