Q: How do I buy more Spotlights? I'm new to the site, and I've actually already bought some, but I've forgotten how to do it!

A: Do you know?

The beagle sitting on the rug is 3/4" inch in height, which will give you the scale for the rest. This is the kitchen in "La Casa de Baja" (The Baja House), a miniature I built, designed and furnished using yard sale items, found treasures, toys, odds and ends of this and that, and other "stuff" I either hunted up or made. Some items, like the coffee pot and coca cola box, were bought. The photos on the wall are mine, drastically reduced. The little doll and the pottery, I found in Mexico and the mosaic on the floor is from another, larger piece of pottery I broke. The fried eggs, which you can barely see, I made from Sculpy and the arch is made with real (very tiny) bricks. The serapis on the window, I made from a fabric belt.

This is not a true rendition of the house we had in Baja, but is modeled after many houses which I saw down there, including ours.

Miniatures are difficult to photograph! It was this project which brought me back to photography after many years away, and into the age of digital, as well. I took the photos on my work table using goose-lamps aimed from various perspectives, in order to create a natural looking light.

This was not my first experiment in miniatures, but is my favorite of the group, so far.
