Happy Easter

Some of us already celebrated Easter Eve yesterday with chocolate and bonfires. Others are waking up to Easter eggs and continue to celebrate today.  And for some of us it may be just a normal Sunday.
Well, wait. Not just any Sunday.
It is April’s Fool Sunday.
And the Sunday that the brand new Collectible Minifigure Series Eighteen is being released around the globe. Not an elaborate April Fools Joke of TLG (we hope) but the 18th series celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Minifigure with one big party. Continue reading “Happy Easter”

SiP goes Floating Bricks

Hello again, Hamburg

While most everyone will probably be working on their idea of recognition or already be preparing their nostalgia I´ve got some great news for you: We, the StuckInPlastic crew, will be showing some of our artworks at this year´s edition of the Floating Bricks exhibition on the 17th and 18th of March!

Week 7: Spirituality

The traditional idea

I´m sure most everyone who participated in our little weekly challenge #SiPgoes52 asked themselves the same question: What is spirituality? So did I.

First I guessed the word was originally connected to a religious context. A look at Wikipedia’s ideas confirmed that:

Traditionally, spirituality refers to a religious process of re-formation which  aims to recover the original shape of man, oriented at the image of God as exemplified by the founders and sacred texts of the religions of the world.

Beginning(s)

To tell you the truth, it was difficult to write this blog post.
It was a struggle for me to select a word for the 12th month of the year.

Should it be 'conclusion', 'ending', 'finality'? Click To Tweet

I like order and for me, every story has a beginning, a middle/development and an ending.
I don’t like endings. It means that everything stops afterwards and I hate that.
When I read a book that I enjoy, I always take a break before reading the last chapter. I don’t like endings.
So, the more I was writing this blog post, the more depressing it was getting.

Then, it hit me during New Year’s Eve.
The end of the year is not about ending things. It’s about new beginning(s). Continue reading “Beginning(s)”

Humanity

Every photographer has these kinds of questions when looking into the viewfinder.
What about my aperture.
My focal length (or should I say glass).
Or my shutter speed.
Yet, I am sure some of us will have wondered along the lines of Gaugain.

Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? - Gaugain, Toy Photographer at heart Click To Tweet

These are eternal questions our species have asked itself since the olden times.
Not just Gaugain.
From folks like Anaximander (/æˌnæksɪˈmændər/; Greek: Ἀναξίμανδρος Anaximandros; c. 610 – c. 546 BC) to Dan Brown (born June 22, 1964) and his latest book, Origin.
A book I can warmly recommend.

Toy Photography, Please?

So what does this have to do with my toy photography? Continue reading “Humanity”

Be Batman

Pssst.
I have a little challenge for you.
Don’t tell anyone.
I am looking for a creative toy photographer that wants to review the brand new LEGO Batman Two series here on Stuck In Plastic. Yep, you read it right. The full series.
Not just one or two, but the whole twenty minifigures that comes out in January, including two awesome me.

Always Be Yourself, unless you can be Batman. Then always be Batman.Click To Tweet

The fantastic folks at TLG have given the great folks here at SiP a full box for review but the shipping elves at LEGO are super busy with this thing called Xmas and the box will only make it after the official release so we want to take a different approach this time. Continue reading “Be Batman”

Always be yourself. Unless you can be me. Then always be Batman.

The Little Prince

The Last Wagon.

I’m jumping in the last wagon of the year.
One of the final words is Books.
And what a book for me.  
The first time I read it, I didn’t like it a lot.

It was just another book that my mom asked me to read. I made her a favor and I read it.Click To Tweet
But after some years being a student I discovered this book anew and read it again.  Ever since that day, it’s one of my favorite stories.
I’m jumping in the last wagon and want to tell you about the kindest and most inspirational book of my childhood.  A book that I think most of you have already read. A book translated into 300 languages and dialects and is selling nearly two million copies annually.
It’s “The little prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Continue reading “The Little Prince”
