Photo Stories then and now: Comparing Among the Flowers episodes over the years

At almost two years into learning to create photo stories, and reshooting the Among the Flowers storyline, I can start to see what I've learned over these years. It started with Camellia's episode, which launched the series. Although I left the first two shots largely unchanged, I fixed the very odd "exit stage right" shot... Continue Reading →

Among the Flowers 04: Daisy and the Secret

In our last episode with Daisy, she was starting to dimly recall memories of her early childhood - a day taking pictures at the lake and a dark shadow falling over her. We join her again a few weeks later. ******* For this episode, I've decided to be much more deliberate in laying out exactly... Continue Reading →

Moving into the dollhouse

I've spent the last few weeks redesigning my doll room (what used to be the dining room in my house), and the living room next to it (which is still, at the moment, just a living room.) I had a very clear picture in my head what I wanted for the doll room and, once... Continue Reading →

I wonder where everyone could have gone? Ah, *there* they are. Well, looks like they're all taking off. Let's hope that Rosie's map is... Continue Reading →

A sense of place, revisited

In one of my first posts, I wrote about trying to find a place for Camellia in the real world. Her location was difficult to find, since I needed a livable, sparsely-inhabited island which might house a panther. Since there's not going to be a real reveal on place for her (just far away shots... Continue Reading →

My Doll Adventure 29: The Stranger’s Story

We ended Rosie's last episode with Frank placing a story in the local paper seeking any info on the girls' (Rosie and Daisy)'s mother, Camellia. This week's episode starts with someone reading that article. Over coffee, someone reads the day's paper and spots an article which recalls a day 12 years ago She makes a... Continue Reading →
