Quarterback

Fuzzball.

A quarterback (commonly abbreviated “QB”) is a position in American and Canadian football. A sport not to be compared with that other kind of football that is currently ongoing in the 2018 (FIFA) World Cup of Football . The name quarterback comes from the line up on the football field, where you used to have a fullback and a half back. The “halfback” was halfway between the fullback and the line of scrimmage, and the “quarterback” was halfway between the halfback and the line of scrimmage. Hence, he was called a “quarter-back” by Walter Camp, a famous halfback, and football coach in the late nineteenth century.
Interesting, no?

A quarter.

The half of the half.
One fourth.
And a period in a year.
A period of three months, that divide the year nicely into four pieces or quarters.

And we are on the last day of the second quarter.
Time to be that quarterback.
Look at the last quarter, and kickstart the second half of the game this year.

It has been a jam-packed quarter. Continue reading “Quarterback”

Out Walking

This weekend we have been hanging out in Paris with some awesome toy photographers and just did not find the time to post here on the blog. We have been very actively posting on IG, though … and here is a little teaser of all that awesomeness.

More to come soon …

Meet Beverly

Feature Friday

Today is Friday and we want to feature another creative who takes part in #SiPgoes52. This time, we interviewed Beverly aka @bevvypix from the UK.

Bev’s photography beginnings

My name is Beverley but most people call me Bev. I live and work as a pro photog with a history going back over 25+ years. Growing up in the 70s, my first camera was a 126 film camera. I loved the fact that I could record a moment in time and eventually look back on it. In the 80s I later progressed to a 110 format camera and then owned my very first film SLR. This interest in photos then enabled me to then work in a photographic lab where I learned how to process films and use chemicals in order to make an image.

Week 6 – Emotion

My passion was growing every day in the photographic industry. I became more and more captivated, and as the saying goes “I didn’t choose photography, photography chose me”. In the mid-90s, I was fortunate to use what I learned so far and travel onboard luxury cruise liners doing what I loved: photography. After two contracts I returned home and met my soulmate. This made me want to stay home here in the UK, so I decided to attend art college using photography as my direction. Continue reading “Meet Beverly”

Meet Sacha

Back To The Future

If we had a DeLorean parked outside (the one with a Flux Capacitor, of course), we would take you all on a little physical time traveling. Unfortunately, there’s no time machine in our garden, so we can just offer the link to the original series of 2015. The series was called Feature Friday. The main idea was looking at the (toy)photographers behind their lenses. Continue reading “Meet Sacha”

SiP goes BrickHeadz

BrickHeadz at the RLFM 2017 days

Last year during the RLFM days, we had the pleasure of meeting and discussing with the ones and only BrickHeadz designers, Marcos Bessa and Austin Carlson.
(We even gave them a challenge we still have to blog about.
We are slow cooking here.)
When we met at the little elevator room somewhere in an undisclosed location in Billund these two awesome dudes told us about the past, the present and the future.

Curious what Marcos and Austin are both playing with?

They told us that the BrickHeadz started with a cute little elephant they made for a colleague. Continue reading “SiP goes BrickHeadz”

Week 5: Security

The word ‘secure’ entered the English language in the 16th century. It is derived from Latin Securus, meaning freedom from anxiety and so it has been with us as a concept since the early days. The combination of the two Latin words, se (without) and cura (care, anxiety), resulted in the modern word security.

But security has a wide range of other senses. Continue reading “Week 5: Security”
