Things in little.
« on: January 25, 2015, 23:19:12 »
This could be a fun thing that we do. Basically the idea is we take pictures of a PM thing on top of or near a real world thing that it is a copy of. I'll go first.

Here is the fireplace in my house, with A TINY FIREPLACE ON TOP OF IT. Note that I have got the bucket and fire tools there too. :D (Yes I missed a trick with the plant and candles, but those are recent additions.)

Greta idea it's a really good way of showing the scale of Playmobil items I've always liked taking photos of Action Men and Playmobil guys  with real life objects to show scale. I can already think of some tools my guys can pose with next to their real life equivalents wheelbarrows, secateurs and axes/hatchets spring to mind.

Three quarters of a million points to the first person to do a water buffalo!

Is there a Playmobil water buffalo? This challenge is impossible on both levels  ;D

 :lol: That I would like to see, seriously I think it would make a great photo opportunity.

Had an idea for another comparison I can do until I've taken some photos, old photos of my custom made Kelly Kettle (recently been told it's a Volcano Kettle, quite apt considering the way it bubbles and boils like a guiser at times  ;D)

This is a great idea! I will have to see what i can do. ;D


Btw, I just can't help myself... that is a cape buffalo, similar to a water buffalo but different. :-[ It's definitely awesome, though. :love:
