It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Temperatures are dropping (at least in the northern hemisphere), most city centres are illuminated opulently and Santa and his elves are busy preparing everything to be ready in time.
I know this is cheesy, but it seems to me the older I get, the faster time goes by. Right now it feels like it’s rushing by at the speed of light.
This morning Ian sent me some pictures from exactly one year ago and simply asked: Can you believe it? Honestly, I hardly can. One year ago we met in Edinburgh, Scotland for our annual toy photo safari. Looking back it was a short yet fantastic weekend meeting old and new friends, driving to the Highlands, playing amongst waterfalls and climbing hills and monuments. But that was only one year ago??

This month seems to be flashing by, in circles, colorful, great fun, and at a dizzying speed. No time to focus. Just like a Tardis. Or a good old merry-go-round. No head, no tail, an outer space portal-like experience. A blur of colors. A childhood passion. Yet before you know the ride is over and you find yourself at the ticket booth buying an extension of the fun or looking for the next ride.
With all the recent changes happening at the start of 2017, we for sure kicked twenty seventeen of with fireworks and a great start for toy photography in general. We wish Shelly and Brett all the best on their new creative adventures.
Before we take a deep dive and share with you where we want to take Stuck In Plastic in 2017 we need a little time off. A time of creative reflection. A moment of zen. Continue reading “BRB”
