How did Shelly do?

Shelly ask in her blogpost an open heart and an open mind: “How did I do, Kristina?” After some consideration I decided to reply with a blogpost :) Suddenly I don’t know where to start; maybe I should start in Sweden, late last August on the Baltic Toy Safari, or should I start in May with the Seattle Toy Safari? Never mind I’ll start by saying I’m impressed with Shelly’s mission to take the opportunity of the safari to have an open mind and an open heart towards whatever happened. I will have to borrow that mission for the next Safari I attend. Continue reading “How did Shelly do?”

Seattle, I will miss you …

Seattle is only a weekend away. Five days before some awesome toy photographers (and old friends) will meet for a weekend of shooting plastic together, sharing stories and toys alike. Photo bombing each other shots and sharing techniques while discovering the most beautiful spots of Seattle and surrounding. Sure, I will miss you all and already feel a little bit jealous of the memories I will have to miss out while meeting old and new friends alike. Continue reading “Seattle, I will miss you …”

It Never Gets Old

I confess, I like taking photographs of T-Rex chasing little helpless mini figures; it never gets old.

Whenever I set up one of these shots I snicker and I’m happy. If I can’t make myself laugh, then how can I make you? If I can’t please myself with my photography, why should I expect you to like them? So here we are, it’s Monday and I’ve posted yet another one of these silly photos and my day got a little better. Continue reading “It Never Gets Old”

Magnuson Park

Do you have a little secret spot that you like to go back to over and over again to shoot your Lego mini figures? You know, that one place you enjoy shooting no matter what the weather is like. We’re not all as lucky as Me2 and are able to travel with our little muses on a regular basis. Personally, I’m more home bound than I’d like to admit.  But that doesn’t stop me from taking my little subjects out on frequent excursions to my special place, Magnuson Park. No matter how many times I return, the park reveals new secrets to me. Continue reading “Magnuson Park”

You’re invited to Seattle!

You’re invited to Seattle to attend the next epic toy photography meet-up from May 20-23! My good friend Jon (Dinoczars) and I will be hosting our second US Stuck in Plastic meet-up because like my favorite philosopher said:

“Is life not a thousand times too short for us to bore ourselves?”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

When I posted last fall asking for input to help choose between Chicago and Seattle for our next meet-up, it seemed that Chicago would be the winner. But when I factored in those who had changed their mind or those who were flexible , there was no clear winner, so I have decided to go with what I know. I would be pleased if you would join me and my co-host Jon, in Seattle from May 20-23, for a weekend filled with toy photography and related silliness.  Continue reading “You’re invited to Seattle!”
