Gorgeous little cars photos

Hello, friends,

This new post is dedicated to our good friend, Sandra Hudson Knapp, who is an amazing, very talented photographer from Vermont, USA.

Sandra takes a lot of photos with the little collectible cars she buys from our shop and lately asked me if I would like to take a look at them.Of course I would, I said.I was very interested to see what she was up too.I will have to say I was so very pleasantly surprised with Sandra’s sunny look on things.Here is the first example.

To begin with the little cars and bikes look so natural and really life size.Their retro looks give a very nostalgic look to the photos, as is the rich sunlight with some sepia undertones.These photos are so seventies, so cool and so contemporary.

 

 

 

I am so charmed by them!I cannot stop gazing at them.They seem to be a tribute to the season of summer and fall both.These lovely photos have the warmth of both seasons, without asking you to choose.They’ll take you to both places.

 

  • All of these retro, collectible miniature seem effortlessly placed in a natural environment.They are poised and posing for a very cool photographer with a keen, sensitive eye.Every little detail in the setting, the background, light and focus are so painstakingly perfect, yet laidback and very alluring.

 

 

  • I would like to thank Sandra for kindly giving me permission to post her beautiful photos here.This is Sandra’s link in flickr for those of you, who would like to see more:

Wall or desk/table clocks with wooden frames in a variety of colours.Usually, red, orange or natural wooden hues for the frame.The clock dial is an oxidised, brass disk and there is also a small, brass sculpture into each clock.

The themes are couples of man and woman or solitary figures in various pursuits.The sculptures in the clocks are all small scale and look adorable.There are riders on bikes, or people, popping out of suitcases, sitting into a flower, holding hands, etc.A terrific idea for unique decor schemes or gifts.

Streets of Fall

Hello, friends,

this is my mood today, grey and brooding, but really hungry for some autumn splendor.I found what I was looking for, browsing around the internet once more and stumbled upon these gorgeous beauties, these old streets of various, European cities and towns.    

This is our fisrt one, Sighisoara, Romania (by Stefa).I think it is trully stunning, it’s got such tremendous atmosphere and the houses are so unique, looking upon the cobbled street with their eye opening colours!

Armaugh, Northern Ireland.Austerity and gloomy weather, yet an elegant, old street with a lot of character.One of a thousand, or tens of thousands like it all over Europe.

 

St Emilion, France.A touristy, old town for sure, with magnificent architecture.A beautiful maze of cobbled alleys, into which I would love to get lost, although I am not one to go climbing up hill for very long, but would surely give these meandering roads a try.

 

Beautiful alley,  in Soller,  in Majorca, Spain.So romantic!Yes, most of today’s images are in the same pattern of old, lovely streets one would love to wander into in an October evening.

Ha!This is easy, Santorini, Greece, up our own alley! I thought it so lovely in the cloudy weather, so endearing. I’d give anything to have been there to shoot the photo myself and then roam the famous caldera for hours till the sun sets.
