Entry Description: Miniature Moments in My Daily Life This series came to be in June 2011. It is my third body of work using my life long passion for collecting miniatures. I found my calling in photographing meaningful scenes with my miniatures a few years ago when I heard someone say “photograph what you love and where you are”. A light bulb went off. I love my miniatures, yet they had been stuffed away in my closet for years. Freeing them brought me tremendous joy. Working from home and priding my self with a great sense of humor, I combined these 2 things and created scenes of my daily routine with my precious miniatures; hence “Miniature Moments of my Daily Life” was born. I have included 5 images from this series of 24.
