My youngest is doing a 4H photograph project so I got her out and about this Saturday to take some pictures. No idea where she gets the idea that photography is fun…
First stop was the Museum of Miniatures in Carmel. As always, we just stumbled across this place not knowing that it had previously existed. I always say that the best trips are those whose plans are simple blank slates. Sometimes you end up in a cornfield and sometimes you end up seeing tiny suits of armour…
or playing a tiny game of chess
or sitting in a really uncomfortable chair. I have to admit that I wasn’t very well equipped to look at tiny objects in a poorly lit environment behind glass but some of these vaguely suffice.
Tiny loo, anyone?
You have to admit, the level of detail on these guys is amazing. I’m tempted to go back with a tripod and take some much more solid shots if they’ll have me.
You can never have too much armour.
After the small stuff, we hit the streets and saw some real characters in the Arts and Design district.
Catching up on some old news…
And there’s always a friendly policeman to show the way.
Spring is in the air. It’s time to water the flowers…
I’ve tried to teach Izzy that the best photographs you take are those in which you’re least comfortable. Here she is getting the low shot.
We always stop to listen to the music. Such as it isn’t.
And we close with this dude who is…. well, have to admit, rather sinister.
And that’s the day that was on March 21st in Carmel.
