…and I’m cool with that! Just because there aren’t photographs of toys being added to my memory cards, it doesn’t mean I’m not still working on toy photography, even if some might call it work!
Last week Shelly lamented not taking enough toy photographs. I get that! I’ve been there, agonising over not spending enough time with toys in front on my lens. I’ve wrestled with creative blocks and I’ve struggled with times that I’ve spent days or weeks without a single toy photograph taken.
However, sometimes these times of inactivity are anything but. The past couple of weeks, and the coming weeks, haven’t been and definitively won’t be sluggish, stationary or dormant.

There are upcoming toy photography projects. There’s the imminent Melbourne Toy Photographers Meetup. And there’s helping to judge the Lume Cube Ultimate Toy Photography Contest.
So, despite appearing outwardly quiet, behind the scenes there’s a bunch of stuff happening. And despite some maybe considering this stuff work, I find it hard to call it work when it’s so much fun!

And so this is how it is of late. When I’m not taking toy photos, or I’m not posting, it’s because I’m working on other toy photography related matters.
And that’s what matters to me, keeping busy with toy photography, even if I’m not taking photographs of toys!
How do you deal with the busy times that take away from your toy photography?
If you’ve made through all my blathering and ended up here, you should sign up to our weekly email round up where you’ll get a recap of all the babbling from the week.
And while you’re doing things, you should definitely join our G+ Community where we hold monthly contests with prizes and lots of other cool stuff too.
