In December folks at www.stuckinplastic.com started to propose some challenges to make us go outside of our comfort zone. I haven’t participated to the first challenge because I lacked time and actually also because I didn’t know how to proceed. The second challenge was about making an exact copy of someone’s else photo. It came at the right time to force me to do something I have wanted to do for a few months: try to remake photos which left a deep trace in my mind from the first people I started to follow on Flickr, and which inspired me to the point of making me want to take myself photos of toys.
This photo (https://www.flickr.com/photos/kappel79/16103970291) from Peter von Kappel is part of a hilarious series where Obi-Wan is drunk at the Mos Eisley Cantina, and also my favorite photo from the first toy photographer I stumbled across on Flickr. It’s because of his photos I started to look for more photography with LEGO, and by transitivity I started to take such photos myself.
