Having some fun with the kids.

I did not anticipate the impatience I had to accept. The dolls had all their clothes on while travelling from one room to the other. Then undressing and sitting down. Getting the meal ready and setting the table up. I took a test shot and the table was cleared in 10 seconds to make room for dessert.

I had to go with the flow of the play, letting my 5 year old daughter press the shutter button twice a minute.

Thanks Aliqui. You are right, all the dolls, food and the books are staged by the children.

My favorite part of this is the books that the dolls are sitting on or leaning against. There's just something very natural about this whole scene. It doesn't look like it was staged by an adult.

I think it is the blur that makes this weird/convincing.
