"Fiesta de los Maniquies" / "Party of the Mannequins"


“Rígidos los cuerpos
los maniquíes bailan.
Con el rojo de sus labios
y el brillar de su cabello.
Miradas de cristal
bajo el saxo envueltas.
Perfecciones en los rizos
sus gargantas secas.
Fiesta de los maniquíes,
no los toques, por favor…”
(“Fiesta de los maniquies”-Golpes Bajos)

“Rigid bodies
mannequins dance.
With the red of her lips
and the shine of your hair.
Glass eyes
wrapped under the sax.
Perfections in the curl
their parched throats.
Party of the mannequins
leave them alone, please …”
(Party of the mannequins“-Golpes Bajos, one of the best bands of the ”scene“ (”movida") of the 80 in Spain)

      Wow - unusual faces, but wonderful portraits of them! I like #3 with the smiling face and the "kissable" face! (I wonder how that will translate!!)

      a fiesta of colors; party of the mannequins, i like that! but another story this photo says is that to be too focused on the superficial looks, one could end up looking stiff like a mannequin! :D

      They have a smile almost menacing, like those terror movies of clowns and so on. Great finding and ravishing colours.

      un trabajo muy bueno. Mu gusta mucho la #4 tiene una expresión terrible... a mi los payasos y los maniquies siempre me dan miedo.
