Before I got a tail (recently) I did this...

It began with seeing other model horse collectors taking their models out into nature and photographing them. Tried it, ,loved it.

Then, on a trip to the National Aquarium in Baltimore MD, a mermaid demanded I take her home. I was cruising the gift shop and really didn't need an 18" mermaid doll...

Yeah...yeah yeah I did..

She acquired some friends (often found in the bottom of the thrift shop plushie bin). Any time I go to a beach, or out in the kayak, the mermaids come along. Photographing them makes you see a familiar place from a new perspective (literally... much closer to the ground). It's a fun activity for kids at a beach, or on a hike.

So don't let your toy...eh...collectibles sit on a shelf... let them have some adventures...
