“Alice & Cheshire Cat” Cedar Park, 2016

こんばんは! Hello, how’s it going?

So, today’s photo is a little scene I created from stuff that is on my desk in the home office. It looks like a scene out of Alice and Wonderland, doesn’t it? But you probably recognize the cat as the catbus from “My Neighbor Totoro”. This particular catbus is a little fridge magnet, but I have it attached to an old Suntory beer can, which I have had for 25 year or so.

I took a few different pics of this scene, some in black and white, but I thought the color version looked better. I used the Fujifilm “Classic Chrome” film simulation, with no extra in-camera adjustments, but in Lightroom I applied the same presets as my previous photos, and I kept the original crop. I love the Classic Chrome colors… they look so cool! The Fujifilm film simulations are so beautiful… Velvia is awesome, Provia is good all-around, and of course the black and white simulations are so versatile. I think the simulations are my favorite feature of the Fujifilm cameras.

You know, it’s fun to set up little scenes like this photo although I rarely do it. I guess because I don’t have too many toys and also probably because I lack that type of creativity. Or maybe I am just lazy! At any rate, I hope you enjoy the photo. 😄
