Garden Reshoot
"and we've got to get ourselves back to the garden."

      I was not satisfied with the images that I captured late in the day (on September 12, 2011) so I went back to the Toledo Botanical Gardens for a reshoot. I also took some other pictures while I was there.

This resting place is near the gazebo.

These pictures came out better.

I still did some minor editing to improve colors.

Wave hello to everyone!

The Hosta Garden.

Sycamore Allee. It was spelled this way on the map.

Someone actually cut this out of a solid steel plate!

Feodora shows the scale of this cutout. The "tree" is about ten feet behind her.

"Crosby Lake" on the map. It is a nice pond.

The other side of this border is one of the parking lots.

"You should stop and smell the roses!" Even if they are not roses.

      We were here earlier today, and the light was much better. At this time of year there are not many flowers in bloom. Some of the leaves are falling, but not many are changing colors. We did see a few people gawking at us, but no one came up to ask a question.

      This will be our last visit until the leaves turn colors for the fall season. Promise!

Feodora's other photo shoots can be accessed from this index.

      Feodora Verochka Tychovich is a life-sized platinum-cured silicone rubber doll. She was produced by Oleg Bratkov (a gifted sculptor) and his beautiful wife Irina (excellent makeup artist), at Anatomical Doll in Vladivostok, Russia. Feodora has Face 3 and Body 3 of their product line. She has a fully articulated skeleton and can pose in most natural ways that a human can pose. There are 'stops' on the skeleton that prevent her from posing in unnatural ways. This also helps to prevent damage to the silicone.

      Feodora is wearing the "no boundaries" printed top (tan), the Comfort Waist White Pant, the Lace Drop earrings, the Lace Pendant Necklace, the Lace Motif Stretch bracelet, the Sparkling Flowers Cuff watch in pink, the Heart of the Crusade pin, the Silvertone Marquise Ring, and the Plum Gorgeous lipstick all from Avon. Her tennis shoes are from Wal Mart.

      Her wig (from Forever Young) was given to her by Irina at Anatomical Doll.
