Several months behind or...a new start?

Let's just say I blew last fall's 30-day photography challenge.  So I'm going to start my own.  I  love, and I've been looking for a similarly small (2" or so) figure online, but this morning I realized I've had the perfect one all along:  a short Wallace figure residing in my apt for at least five, maybe 10 years.

Wallace is standing next to a bag of walnuts on the little kitchen wotsit table, which needs work.  It could hardly get more cluttered.  And one thing I learned when I shared an apartment in Chelsea owned by a moviemaker is that DETAIL is all.  There was never anything out of place in the moviemaker's home (not in the apartment, obviously, since she did not live there).  There was nothing in her rooms to mar the background if she wanted to film something spontaneously.  

Here Wallace is standing on a glass popcorn container looking at an MSF map of the world.  He's a bit out of focus, but maybe that's ok.

I have a lot of work to do to get everything, each layer, in proper focus, but that'll be the fun.  This will be my practice page for a while.  I need to give Wallace a bath, too.  He's been collecting dust for years.


  1. I just said to Jay today that I wanted to see you do more photography. I loved Moon Man and I really like the 365 photo projects that I've been seeing on FB and blogs.

    Looking forward to Wallace!!

  2. Thanks, Sally....I was soooo happy to find Wallace today! You've seen Emilie Johnson's blog, haven't you? It's almost all photographs. You would LOVE yesterday's and today's. The guy who does moonmancom is her brother!

  3. I love Wallace! You've inspired me ;)
