I got up really early this morning because I wanted to photograph one of my dolls before going to work. I had been playing with my D.I.M. Belita the night before, trying out various wigs and hairstyles on her. I decided to pack a bag with my doll and a couple of props for a 15-minute bike ride down to the the southeast portion of City Park because there just wasn't enough interesting spots in my little garden at home. The front garden is blooming and full of big things that just didn't seem appropriate--think Edward Gorey and The Evil Garden! So, in the still cool of the morning, I quietly crept away as my downstairs neighbors slept.
Despite the comic beginnings, I found the perfect spot and shot about 105 frames. After an hour, I was ready to ride back home to take a shower and change for work. To my utter horror, I discovered that I had a very flat back tire. I was about a mile and a half from home and felt my stamina deflate more than that rotten tire did at the mere thought of pushing that bike home on foot! But walk I did! When I got home, I only had 20 minutes before my bus came, but all in all I think the photos were worth it! I'm tired and and very much ready for a short nap, but I hope you enjoy these new images of Belita.
