Goes Together Like...

I know what love is! Somebody out there has got to be getting these references...Anyway, yep, I was inspired to make that crazy rope partition from some stairs I tweeted about last week. I expect to revisit this rope business in the future. This was a quick threading along a frame to work out some creative frustrations. I'm imagining that this whole setup is a small apartment where the tenant wanted to designate a space for the dining area without installing a permanent fixture or blocking any of the light. Shrug.

    Given that the houses in Blighty are getting smaller, this is a great way to partition a room. Who da thought this would translate so elegantly into miniature. Kudos mini-magic-maker!

    How comes you get such fantastic light into your scenes? Do you use a lamp or is the weather so darn wonderful over there that it just oozes in? Me likey =0)

    1. Ha ha! And, of course, Pepper totally gets it! You're my JenNay--ha! Thanks lady friend. I have to give the lighting credit to California. First shots are from the sun rising and the second set are from when the sun is over the house. If I could ship some of this lighting to you, I would, but they would tax the hell out of you...

    1. Ha! I really like that!! I want to try something like that--going floor to ceiling. Hmm... Call Small, this is great! I'm over here just experimenting like a mad woman. I'll be using this link as reference. Awesome!

    1. Thanks Mandy! I just get lucky. I have no idea what I'm doing. I just like how some stuff looks in the viewfinder and then push the button. I always say I'll take a class but...it never happens--kind of like me crafting anything. You know, I've been toying with the idea of showing how unorganized and chaotic it looks outside the placed setting. Like many of us who dig this realm, it can get "straight-up bananas" in the hobby room...

    1. Hello Finland Friend!
      Very nice to have you visiting! Thank you for your kind compliments. I always like seeing who else is out there in the miniatures world. Cool to have you in the realm!

    2. Also...I like the artistic miniature settings that you create. You are much more crafty than I am. I really like the way you modified the Villa Charlotte stairs--the railing and bannister is great!

    1. Hey Kyle Lefort!
      Thanks! I definitely want to experiment more with that concept. Right now, I am trying to figure out how to attach the rope without making any permanent marks on the house structure. We'll see what happens...

  7. Love the look. It's a clever way to define space without losing light. Your photos are superb, by the way.

    1. Thank you, Roville!
      I'm just getting lucky with the photos. The camera is doing all of the work. I want to buy a new one, but can't seem to part with this one since it hasn't let me down. Ha!

  9. Have you seen the Vitra Mini collection? Just like Reac but Vitra has just a bit more, cost more too. DWR is having a sale, if you want to call it that.
