Cape Henlopen

This passed weekend we got the heck out of dodge and went to the beach! Me and the real doll nerd packed up the car, the dog and a few dolls and headed down to the Delaware coast. My favorite beach is Cape Henlopen State Park. You can take your dog there. What would a Supercool getaway be without a few doll photos? -enjoy

World War Two era gun tower at Cape Henlopen.

At the base of the tower was an old rusted out door, perfect for a little shoot.
This is TRDN's Momoko.

I've decided that these two are my new travel dolls. Susie and Coe.
I wish I had taken a few more shots, but hey! I was on vacation : )

For more pics, visit my Flickr photostream! You'll see my doggie.

... if one does not publish on the date one enters a post... the publish date will still be the day it is entered... not last edited... good to know... see below... I entered the text 9 days before, but did not publish with photos until later... is there a way to get around this?

Oh... the drama of it all....

I’m not a big fan of the theater but I’m a great fan of THEATER.

I love the concept of going to a darkened auditorium, and letting the actors transport me to another place… but the reality is, the whole thing bores me silly. Perhaps I’ve been and still am too poor to afford good theater, or maybe I’m a gen-x slacker who needs special effects and million dollar budgets in order to buy into the story presented. Possibly, somewhere out there, exist actors just waiting to impress me.

On the other hand there is THEATER, of life that is. You know the kind when you’re just minding your own business and you get a glimpse of someone's life... and you're all up in their cool aid? You can see the emotion between people, but you can just hear a bit and you can't read lips and you're like... What's that all about? No? just nosey ole me? … YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT… THEATER!

Anyway… I’ve been inspired. I’d been looking for a sky background for my scenes. I’ve been using plexi with the blue protective film still attached. It’s worked, but they’re in small sections and the blue is starting to peel. So, I ordered blue window film and adhered it to a large piece of clear plexiglass. When I had it all set up, it reminded me of my high school’s auditorium and stage, a clean crisp canvas where students would dance, or sing or put on a play. Well here’s a nice little place for some doll Theater I thought. And here it is. - Enjoy

At the beach. First date? Proposal? Break up?

At the store. Frenemies? Sisters?

At a restaurant two tables away. Why's he nervous? Is she crying or laughing?

At the airport. Brother in-laws? Modern family?

On a city street. What?!
