52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

35. On The River

57 Comments

Rain in Florida is not unusual. What does feel unusual for me is rain lasting for days upon days. The rains we have been getting in the last couple weeks feel more like the rainy seasons we used to experience when we lived in Panama. The morning news has been full of flood advisories and warnings not to drive through flooded streets.
I decided to take another tiny Playmobil man out to the street/river in front of my house for a little creative photo shoot. The gutter must seem like a river when you are 2 1/2 inches tall!
All my clothes are now in the dryer….

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!

  4. I love this! Ansley commented on the way home yesterday every time we saw a decent puddle…. =)

  5. Love it! … Of course I wish I’d been there to take a photo of you in the gutter TAKING the photo.

    • That would have been a funny shot P. My rain coat hat kept falling in my face and blocking my view. I probably looked like I was punching myself in the face. I ended up nearly flat on the ground and soaking wet. I tried not to make eye contact with the 1 car that drove past! Lol

  6. Hmmm – I wonder what the neighbors think of you – hahaha! So cute. I love the creativity and the colors.

  7. This is too cute. I love the little people perspective. And I can imagine you taking this.

  8. This is so funny. Mindy. I am so looking forward to seeing what your little people will get up to.

  9. How many of those things did you buy???? Too funny!

  10. I love this and the image of you taking it in the rain!

  11. looks like you and the little guy caught a good one.

    • It was almost the one that got away. I got all the way out there and realized I lost the fish on the way to the curb. I had to retrace my steps all the way back to the front door to find it!

  12. I think you should send your pics to the company– this was fantastic

  15. I love the picture, and the idea of the 52 weeks photo challenges. Does one normally start in January, or can they start in the middle (August for example)?

  20. This is very creative and so cute. I love close up and macro type photography but I never really thought about using little people. I noticed your tag Canon 5D Mark ll I use the same camera most of the time. My 50D is my crop sensor camera and right now I need to send it into Canon the shutter button went out..

    • Thank you? Using the little people has been a fun way for me to change thing up a bit and bring some more fun into my project. I love my 5d. It’s been a real work horse for me.
