Sunsets

Image
Who doesn't love sunsets? It is hard to resist snapping photos of free artwork in the sky. I have taken hundreds of sunsets pictures over the years. Here are some of my favourites. Most were taken on a phone.

Schleich Toys

Image
I've recently discovered the Schleich brand of toys and now I am obsessed.  For plastic animal figures, they are very well detailed and pretty close to 1:12 inch scale. The company was founded in Germany in 1935 and is one of the largest manufacturers of toy figurines.  I'm sooo bummed that it took me this long to discover them. The main reason I collect figures is for photography.  I photograph the miniatures I make myself on a daily basis (for selling online ) but taking photos of toys is just for fun.  Schleich Cow photographed with a Google Pixel and edited in Snapseed - Redwood Retro I like to use other toy brands as well.  When I found this lovely creature in the garden, I couldn't resist posing it on a Hot Wheels car  (yes, I collect those too lol).

Kodachrome of the day - Man selling slides in Europe

Image
I love this Kodachrome because this photo captures something that probably doesn't exist anymore. A street vendor selling slides.  These sets contained professionally photographed pictures of all the famous places you would be most likely to visit on your vacation. The picture below is a set that the vendor most likely had for sale. Some of the photos in this set included these gems. Check out these amateur kodachromes of Rome . I think these are better than the professional ones.
