Just Put Your Lips Together and Pull

An anonymous photograph from who knows where--one of two I have featuring these inquisitive girl-tots.

Have to say I'm a little bit tired of the general idea: over the past 10 years lots of photographers have used miniature figures like these in set-up tableaus. David Levinthal's Hitler Moves to the East 1941-43 was one of the earliest and most successful of these projects, but he's been much copied.

For some reason I keep wondering if the (I think much older) photo posted here comes from somewhere in Eastern Europe. Has a 'Czech' quality to it. Or possibly Hungarian.
