Odd Shots

     I generally plan photo shoots with an intended purpose, but now and then I take a picture or two as the Muse directs. Here are a few odd shots that I have taken recently.

At the Westmoor Yard Sale

(We actually used the first three rows of the parking lot.)

Feodora's other pictures can be seen in her galleries.

Fall In Ohio

     This is the first time that Feodora has experienced the autumn season in Ohio, so I took her out to see some of the colors.

We look like we are going to a harvest festival!

I set my camera's auto exposure a litle darker.

(http://www.arimecibo.com/coppermine/albums/userpics/10001/normal__MG_1904b_sm.JPG)
I still had to tweak the gamma on a couple of these pictures.

     There were 23 pictures in this set. I put only put four in Feodora's gallery (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=420).

Avon Representative

     I did this set for the November 2011 Photo Challenge. The theme for this challenge is "Cornucopia" -  a lot of what your doll has.

     The residents at the Westmoor apartments decorated a Christmas tree in the lobby. Since I will not be decorating the apartment, I took Feodora out for a few pictures. Here are a few from that set.

     Incred chose to do a theme of "Captions" for the December 2011 photo challenge. I took a few pictures for that, but I have not yet decided whether or not I will use them.

     The "pie" pictures might be an easy mistake (not taking them out of the box), but the using percolator coffee in a cup in the microwave might be a bit too dumb. I might be able to use those pictures for some "do not do this at home" set later.

     I could edit out the doll stand, but I am just too lazy. Besides, everyone here knows that she is a doll. If I wantedf to put these pictures up for sale, (which I might), then I would do the editing. Almost all of my pictures are straight from the camera. I doresize them for the internet, but that is all. Enjoy!

You can find more of these pictures in Feodora's second album Feodora Set 2 (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=420&page=37).

Winter Fun

     I got the idea for this from Ceej's  Winter Activities (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=3705.0) photo challenge theme.

     I had intended this for the photo challenge, but I was not satisfied with the results. There is a well-established mole colony in the back yard, and the ground is unstable. During the shoot, Feodora tipped over and fell into the rose bush. Still, it is my fault that I placed the doll stand on shaky ground.

(http://www.arimecibo.com/coppermine/albums/userpics/10001/normal__MG_4267b_sm.JPG)

     Feodora did her part just fine. I could have taken other shots, but I was disappointed that I let her fall. Her right arm and hand got quite a few thorns and scratches. The Sil-Poxy had partially cured in the tube, and I had to cut it open to get enough agent for the repairs. Luckily there was enough left to finish.

A Taste of Home

     Feodora is watching a video of Russian Folk Song and Dance. I picked up this video at the library, and I thought she might like to see these pictures from the old country.

     I recently became a fan of Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files (http://www.jim-butcher.com/store) book series. Feodora picked one up, and now she wants the whole set!

The main character, Harry Dresden, is a big fan of Burger King.

     So not only does she have my lunch, but she is also reading a book that I have not finished, in my favorite chair! Egad!

     I put Feodora back in the Sea Foam green set for a few days, but we did not go anywhere.

     She bought herself a new summer dress, and wanted to show that off, too.

Feodora with Bob and Fup

     "Bob the Skull" is a character in The Dresden Files series of novels and short stories. He is a 'spirit of intellect' that was trapped in a skull. He helps Harry Dresden, a wizard and Private Investigator. Although he has no body, he is a bit of a sex fiend. "Fup Duck" was inspired by comments on the forum for that series.

     I found an inexpensive skull ($3.97) amongst the Halloween goodies at Wal Mart. The 'spirit eyes' were made with a felt-tipped marker on scrap paper. I attached them with double-stick tape.

     Bob the Skull and Fup Duck get a little personal attention from Feodora. Click on images for larger pictures.

Bob: "Noq! Who's the babe! You been holdin' out on me, man!"

Feodora: "There, there little spirit! No need to drool!"
Bob: "Yeah, baby! OW! Keep on doing that!"

     This top is a few years old, but it works well for an Autumn shoot.

     The hat and badges came with an outfit that I bought for Dollstock 2012. The Western sytle black shirt was purchased separately.

Dish Duty

     These are the glasses that we use for our annual toast at Dollstock (2010 (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=1385.0) 2011 (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=3393.0).) We thought it would be best to wash them just before we packed them for the trip.

(http://www.arimecibo.com/coppermine/albums/userpics/10001/normal__MG_6518b_sm.JPG)

     Feodora: "Tell me again why I have to wash the glasses for my birthday party!"
     noquiexis: "Your birthday is in November, dear. We celebrate your birthday now because this is when all of your doll sisters can get together. Besides, it is our vacation, and I am doing all the packing."

(http://www.arimecibo.com/coppermine/albums/userpics/10001/normal__MG_6522b_sm.JPG)

     Feodora: "It is my vacation, too! Did you forget about that?"
     noquiexis: "Of course not, dear, but who went on a cruise (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=3844.0) with Camp while I stayed here minding the store?"
     Feodora: "Oh! That is right! You helped me pack my clothes then, too. I guess I should help out a little!"

November Sunset

     I took a few odd shots of Feodora in the rapidly changing light of an early November sunset. Here are a couple of those pictures.

     One of the things that make this a fun place to be is that we get so many good ideas from other people. This picture was inspired by a creation of our very own Ceej!

     Feodora's fedora (Avon (http://www.avon.com/)) was a gift from KA and MrsC. The three tunics, the pink and the blue 'jeggings' (leggings that look like jeans), sunglasses, and jewelry are from Avon (http://www.avon.com/). The black pants are by Sag Harbor (purchased locally). The black and red Carlotta wigs were purchased through Incred, who got them at a really good price! I got the hair decorations at Wal Mart.

     The Oak Grove School (http://www.metroparkstoledo.com/metro/parksandplaces/index.asp?page_id=531), an 1893 one-room brick schoolhouse was moved to the Wildwood Preserve Metropark (http://www.metroparkstoledo.com/metro/parksandplaces/index.asp?page_id=513) in 1998. The "Trio la Arimecibo" thought this would be a good place for their rehearsal. Unfortunately, park officials thought otherwise, and asked them to leave. Such is life!

     Get outta town! The "Trio la Arimecibo" perform on planet Mars! I always wanted to do a "Sands of Mars" shot. b-man's way cool Star Trek (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=4901.0) shot convinced me to go for it!

     The girls are in a pressurized biodome with an invisible force field. That is why you cannot see it in the picture.  ;)

     On September 22, 2015, coach Matt Campbell and the University of Toledo (http://www.utoledo.edu/) Rockets were clues on the Jeopardy! quiz show. The day before that I took a few pictures of Feodora dressed as a UT Rockets fan. Here are a couple of them. The boa was a gift from Mrs_Ceej. She knows of my support for Breast Cancer Awareness (http://komennwohio.org/). Think pink!
