  • Just getting a good start at this series of pictures; "Off The Wall", dollhouse deco.- Pictures taken, and processed by me, to appear as if they were on a wall in a dollhouse. (or for a wall in a dollhouse)

    I have two beautiful daughters plus four grand daughters, and I always wanted to make for them a Victorian dollhouse. My two girls are both grown now, and have children of their own. I never did even get a start on building them a dollhouse. I was always too busy with job, fishing, bicycling, house maintenance, fixing family cars, etc, etc... I just didn't make it a priority, and I should have. Far too much of their childhood I was uninvolved in, and with no honestly valid excuse.

    I embark on this project, with only two photographs in the folder so far, in the hopes that they may find enough of the little girls within themselves to enjoy them yet. I hope they haven't grown up too much to appreciate the effort, and my intent. I hope also that I exhibit more resolve to continue the project better than I did the dollhouse itself. I want to make it a substantial collection before I leave this world.

    This is the first of the series, and I will post more with something of a description as I produce them. The chapter of the folio that I'm producing first is the 'Victorian living room'.

    The pictures require specific exposures, and processing to get the effect I'm after, and as a result they won't print up any larger than eight by tens, but look much better as they shrink down to nearer actual dollhouse proportions. They require an exceptionally high ISO setting to begin with, and I have tried using severely cropped higher resolution photos to expand my options with many of my other photos, but they don't produce the right effect.

    I won't be selling any of these, as they are intended as a gift from the heart to my daughters, and any other children that may find pleasure in them. If anyone sees one they would like to have, contact me by email at >< and I will gladly return an email with the photograph attached.

    Please include the chapter description, and series # with your request. For example; for this one the description and number would be: 'Victorian living room #1'. The photo files are under 5 MB, which is why they won't print very large. There will be absolutely NO charge, as I said, they are a gift. They should print at home nicely to hang in an actual doll house.

    As much as a gift for my girls, these are a gift to cowbird too. For all the wonderful stories that I have enjoyed here. Thanks.

    There may, or may not be any actual story posted with subsequent entries of this series.
