I don't like summer. I loathe the sun and warm weather makes me cranky and depressed. So for me summer is just no fun. I think that is why all of my summer photos are a little off and dark. Here is a pretty good example of how my mind views summer.
I can't wait for the fall...

Well, I went digging around in the garage and was able to rescue Battle Cat (Adam/He-Man's Tiger) as well as Skeletor.
These are only the initial images as I wanted to photograph them right away but I am not 100% happy with the final outcome (the lighting was strange today and I felt rushed when I was shooting...)
Either way here are more additions to 'The Toy Project'
I am really excited to continue this project- it have given me a new view and a renewed sense of inspiration! I hope everyone else is as inspired as I am right now.

Yes- That's right!
Since my move I have been finding amazing treasures that I NEVER would have expected to find ever again. I am currently working on a book consisting of TTV Photographs of childhood toys. I think these are the perfect starting point for this project and these are just the two ponies that I brought into the house so far...
I still have the unicorns, flutter ponies and the male ponies to go through. I am really excited and can't wait! Not to mention I have TONS and TONS of vintage Star Wars, He-Man and She-Ra toys to go through. I can really feel the creativity and inspiration coming. If there are any suggestions on other childhood toys form the 1980's please let me know.
UPDATE: After my mom saw these images she exclaimed how she was glad that I went to art school for my degree just go later go on and photograph My Little Ponies....gee- thanks Mom!

I finally made the transition between living on my own to moving back in with my parents (at least m brother still lives here too!) and it has been quite tough to feel inspired or get creative without the entire space at my disposal.
Either way I am trying to force myself out of this rut. These are the images I am working on...if nothing they make me smile and are really gorgeous and simple.
