Anderton Boat Lift

So to continue our quest for interesting locations today we visited Anderton Boat lift which is a massive restored structure to lift canal boats from a lower to a higher level, four at a time. We took my No navel girl and also my Unoa Hybrid BJD who i think suited some of the more “grungy” settings than Sasha did!

BJD’s and Sasha Dolls

Last weekend we saw a great location with massive Bullrushes so Saturday we made a quick trip back while they were still looking photogenic, the BJD i took along is an Iplehouse Benny whose about the same size as Sasha but a lot slimmer, also took my Gotz Large head girl along but she totally mussed up her hair in my carry bag so all her pictures had to be taken from the side, no pictures in the bullrushes for her but got some good shots with the blackberries and leaves.

Green Eyed Girl

Today we went to Etherow Park in Marple, there’s a lot of evidence of its past Industrial Heritage where it used to house a Cotton Mill. We’re trying to photograph a variety of different locations as it mostly greenary and woodland around here.

My model is my 1970’s girl i bought for her Oxidised Green eyes, i’ve re-painted over her green eyebrows with brown acrylic paint as i wasn’t really liking them as they were but i love her now.

Padley Gorge

We visited Padley Gorge and took Irka today to get some photo time before the colder weather comes, took my 1970’s blonde girls but i didn’t get many pictures of them together as i was worried they would fall into the water if i had more than one doll to watch at a time!

Shining Woods

We went out today to take a few shots of some of the dolls in the Halloween outfits i’ve been making as i tried a mass photos shoot on Friday inside which took me ages to set up and a ton of photos trying to get everyone in the picture and in focus and i still wasn’t that happy at the end of it so went to find a spooky setting and thought anywhere with “Shining” in the title sounded promising so long as there was no Jack Nicholson types around! 

I’m saving the Halloween pictures for now but my baby ginger and no navel girl opted for “Princess” themes instead of orange and black so i’m posting a couple of those. We went to a Canal later and got some nice reflection pictures.
