A Gentle Bit of Amusement…

my Izannah newly made reproduction Izannah Walker doll inserted into an antique photograph

This is a photograph I first shared in February, 2012 ❤ It shows a reproduction Izannah Walker doll that I made, photographed, and then talked one of my sons into inserting in a copyright free antique photo. ❤ ❤ ❤ Every now and then this photo pops up in my Pinterest and facebook feeds. It always makes me smile when that happens… especially when people have added inaccurate captions because they think the doll in the photo is an original ~ not realizing that it is an altered photograph… It’s original caption having been lost when the photo was shared, then shared again… like playing a visual version of “telephone” 🙂

If you’d like to go back and see the post where this photo originally appeared here is the link https://izannahwalker.com/2012/02/11/meet-my-newest-izannah-walker-reproduction-doll/

It’s funny, the altered photo is no longer in it’s original post, having fallen victim to one of my infrequent photo storage deletion sprees… as storage space here on my blog is always an issue 🙂  However I did leave a couple of color photographs of the doll and a short video of her in the original post, which you might  enjoy seeing!

This is the unaltered copyright free Dover image we started with to create the final photo.

  1. Paula, I was sure that the doll in the photo is antique! ))))) I showed the photo to my husband and said that the doll probably made to order for a girl in a similar dress ….. Ha-ha … Yes, people take someone else’s photo and do not even understand what they are writing .. ..
    Unfortunately, many people are involved in plagiarism, they use other people’s knowledge, other people’s work. I ran into this also. And it is impossible to fight against this.

    • I was a little surprised that people couldn’t tell this is an altered photo, it looks obvious to me, but it is a huge compliment that both the doll and the photograph are good enough to fool other people. 🙂 I think that I’ll need to add a watermark if I ever decide to do another photo like this. ❤
