The idea here is to photograph very small inanimate objects - not details and close ups of larger things, but self-contained little items we see and take for granted. It should be interesting to take the expertise some Robins have with tiny critters, and apply it to objects that can't fly away. And the rest of us have the photographic challenge of learning to focus on the miniature world.
Having been caught out of my home environment I have availed myself of some of the objects that were on hand at Fosters Farm, my original intention was to photograph some of Vicki’s bells, she has dozens of miniatures, these were packed in readiness for a move, so I have used some of Rex’s “toys” instead.
The farm here in SA could be used for a John Deere commercial so enamored are they with the brand, well founded loyalty to an excellent range of quality products.
I started out by collecting all the JD bits and pieces I could find this photo
shows them all, There is a sign that adorns the farm office wall, 4 JD caps,
3 place mats, 1 mouse pad, a pair of thongs (flip flops) 3 small JD models and
a pair of night lights in the shape of tractors.
reducing this to a more usable array we have a much more attractive
This photo features one of the night lights which Rex has to convert
from the American electrical fittings to our Aussie ones before they
go to his two grandsons.
Next there are 2 models, a 4 wheel bike and a ride on mower.
A model of an old JD tractor completes the set.
Just slipping into the real world for a quick look at the real toys hard
at work during harvest.
