Death
A Displaced Tea Party.






















It was sadly very cold, windy, and very, very grey. I didn't get to do much with them before my hands refused to work and it was clearly time to return to someplace warm. Like the car. We actually had to drive to the beach (which is two blocks away) because of flooding.


By the way, I would really like that Dollheart Alice Fantasy outfit. If anyone's selling it, well, I want it.

Fantastic! The juxtaposition of the table and chairs ready for tea at the beach is brilliant! And Martel! Reading!
12.30.09 (UTC)
I wish I had had the time to go out and buy another chair before I left for the ocean.

And I'm not sure why, but Martel reading does seem a little funny, doesn't it? XD

Love this shoot, dear! Thanks so much for sharing.
12.30.09 (UTC)
Thank you! I enjoyed creating it, even if it is freezing outside. O_o
12.30.09 (UTC)
These shots are the coolest thing I've seen in awhile
12.30.09 (UTC)
Thanks! I'm... addicted to Alice.

*thunk*

Best work of yours ever, K!!!! These are stupendous and just "paid" for the price of the camera. YOUR VISION is insane!!! Perfection!

Going outside and making these pictures (durrr... I apparently put two the same in here... all fixed) totally make my holiday. I almost stayed home - Lindsey did, but I really wanted to get out to the water and make tea parties. And it was beyond depressing to get here and have to find long alternate routes to the house because the roads were flooded and I have a stupid rental that isn't the Jeep. Okay, I need to shut up, but it was beyond depressing and frustrating.

And you know this wouldn't have worked under the deck.
12.30.09 (UTC)
These are amazing. Total masterpieces. :o

Well, I certainly didn't expect that! LOL!

Thank you! *hugs*

I'm so honored my little book made it into such a lovely photoshoot.

I think the first shot is my favorite.
12.30.09 (UTC)
Thank you for making me the little books! They're absolutely lovely and perfect. ♥
12.30.09 (UTC)
OMG! do you realize just how fricken awesome this is????? wow, you just blew me away! the cold was well worth it!

Oh and that last shot, uh, I know you are tall but you must be standing on something O_O
12.30.09 (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm just pleased that they came out pretty much exactly how I wanted them to. I mean, how often does that happen? lol!

(and I wish you were here with that "secret" dolly you posted last night. mmm hmm. That would have been even more awesome.)


It's my lens. Becuase I'm not standing on anything, but I had to seriously photoshop that one because the bowing of the horizon line was not nice.
12.30.09 (UTC)
This is so much crazy awesome. X.x

That just blows me away! <3

Thank you~ ♥
12.30.09 (UTC)
...This may be the most amazing set of doll photography I have ever seen. BEAUTIFUL. Thank you so much for sharing.
12.31.09 (UTC)
I've been wanting to try this one for a long time, but it's hard to get to so much water when there's no one else around. Thank you! ♥
12.30.09 (UTC)
Eeee!!!

Fantastic. Although now I want a closer shot of the table so I can see everything else that's on it, too.
12.31.09 (UTC)
Oh, but I'm sure you can guess at what's on the table. Books, a key, a tea caddy... Hatter does have a "broken" pocket watch, but I didn't feel the photography was about details specifically.
12.30.09 (UTC)
These are beautiful an well worth the pain/cold. :) It usually is.
12.31.09 (UTC)
Yes, it was worth it. And now I have to de-sand everything! Ah well, that's the ocean for you. XD
12.30.09 (UTC)
Wow, I really, really love these. They are so dreamy and lovely. I think the first two are my favorites, they look otherworldly.
12.31.09 (UTC)
Thank you! I think they'd live in a world like this... if they were real.
12.31.09 (UTC)
*dies* GORGEOUS AND SO SO SO AWESOME!!!!! BEAUTIFUL SHOOT! Man, I want a cold beach to take photos on. *wibble*
12.31.09 (UTC)
I- Well, if I could give you a beach I would, but you're not really near an ocean. *sigh* :is defeated:

And thank you! It was fun even if it was cold and wet and I got sand in my pants. (I honestly have no idea how I accomplished that, either.)
12.31.09 (UTC)
I think you did a great job with these . . . the effort and the cold was worth the price of admission. I enjoyed the view!! Handsome bishies and great scenery. Lovely!! :D
12.31.09 (UTC)
The Atlantic in winter in one of my favorite places to be. I'm glad these were successful. :)
12.31.09 (UTC)
These photos are amazing. Seriously. The first one takes my breath away, and I adore this one very much. Now I want to go to the winter beach... maybe this weekend. (Though the beach I know is a longer ride then two blocks XD)
12.31.09 (UTC)
Yes go if you can, the ocean is amazing! I can never decide if I prefer the Atlantic or the Pacific though. Here, the Atlantic is always grey.

I'm glad you enjoyed them! I couldn't squander my one trip to the water; there was some pretty awful flooding and I hadn't been able to get to the ocean before today.
12.31.09 (UTC)
These are utterly beautiful and surreal. The love first shot especially.
12.31.09 (UTC)
Thank you. I was just glad these turned out the way I wanted them to. :)
12.31.09 (UTC)
These are probably the most incredible doll photos that I've seen all year. Wow!
12.31.09 (UTC)
Really?! Wow, thanks!! XD
(Deleted comment)
12.31.09 (UTC)
Oh thank you! Glad you enjoyed them!
12.31.09 (UTC)
That is love. The vista, the props, even the "stones" on the beach are obligingly in scale.
12.31.09 (UTC)
I know - the stones and shells! It was very kind of the beach to be so agreeable! XD
12.31.09 (UTC)
Yay more doll adventures! Long time no see .... *is happy*

Also, loves the beach, but the beach does not love me...
12.31.09 (UTC)
Well, I don't know that the beach truly loves anyone. There's something magnificent about the ocean. Something that reminds me how small and insignificant I really am.
12.31.09 (UTC)
These are amazingly beautiful photos!
12.31.09 (UTC)
Thank you!
12.31.09 (UTC)
That is so awesome. Such a creative place for a tea party.

Where did you find a doll sized tea caddy?
12.31.09 (UTC)
Thanks! The tea caddy came from the American Girl Collection back when it was Pleasant Company. It was one of Felicity's accessories. I actually think the tilt-top table is from Felicity's set too, but I bought that off of Stacy ages ago and she rescued it from an antique store....
12.31.09 (UTC)
Beautiful photos. Everything about them, down to the tiniest detail and props is perfect.
12.31.09 (UTC)
Thank you. I wondered if it might be a bit minimalist, but tea by the water shouldn't be excesive or complicated either.
12.31.09 (UTC)
Oooo this is wonderful! That last shot is spectacular!! What we go through and suffer for these little men, heehee..
12.31.09 (UTC)
Silly little men! Though I'm not sure they were entirely pleased about being there. I had to move from my first location because the tide was coming in and I'd started setting them up much too close to the water - well, close enough I didn't want to find out what salty ocean would do to doll props and shoes. :/
