Within minutes after my last post about Spring, the temperature dropped to freezing, the sun dissapeared, little snowflakes appeared in a dark grey sky and today it is raining, grey and stormy...

I dressed Errol, by Sylvia Mobley, in jodhpur`s and a "tweed" jacket. The lady was made by Miep Otzen, a Dutch doll-artist. Miep now no longer makes dolls, and moved to lovely France.
I dressed the lady in a "tweed" suit with bloomers, very convinient for riding a bicycle!
The background is the actual map my parents used in october 1942 of the area around Vorden in Holland.

Because of the black background, the doll was over-exposed at first, so I had to adjust the aperture to under-exposing. With the
"french" doll I also used a little lamp, but not directly on the doll.
I will keep experimenting, maybe I should try a tripod to help the sharpness.
