Kurt and I are currently in Joshua Tree National Park working as volunteers and in our down time Kurt is photographing for our Un Petit Monde project.
Joshua Tree NP is notorious for its climbing opportunities as well as its off-road driving, night skies and of course, Joshua Trees. It’s a good thing that the miniatures in Kurt’s bag are always ready for adventure and exploration.
While exploring a wash in the Southern end of the park, Kurt found a good spot for his 4x4 jeep convoy. The sand was smooth enough for their tires to be able to deal with it. Half hour earlier the sky had the most unique display of clouds, it would have been a perfect addition to the scene!
On a separate occasion, we scrambled up granite boulders so Kurt could document a miniature climber in action.
Towards the end of 2014, Kurt went back to work on the Disney Infinity Project and produced a new Christmas Series.
The release of our Disney Infinity Christmas Series is a bit of an anticlimax for us, now that we are in the 80°s and Christmas is long gone NONETHELESS, we hear that some parts of the world currently get snow (!) so we are pleased to unveil the latest Disney Infinity Christmas Series including: Anna & Elsa, Stitch, Mickey & Donald, Tinker Bell and Hiro & Baymax.
This Christmas series was a challenge as the majority of the photos were shot prior to Thanksgiving, when there was no snow and no decorations up yet. But, amidst a brown Minnesota we found white, powdery snow in Taylors Falls and Kurt photographed Anna & Elsa making Olaf the snowman. In the historic town of Stillwater we came across a window display with the ideal Christmas setting for Stitch to be eating his mincemeat pie. Later in the season, we stopped in the quaint little town of Williams in Arizona on the night of their Christmas parade and found the neatest Christmas tree we'd ever seen for Tinker Bell to perch on.
As usual, Kurt added his personal touch to the Disney Infinity character by painstakingly painting and building props, it turned out to be a lot of fun!
Thank you to Wild Mountain in Taylors Falls, Minnesota for allowing us to photograph Anna and Elsa on their slopes, thank you to Käthe Wohlfahrt in Stillwater, Minnesota for giving Stitch a perfect Christmas setting, thank you to Edinburgh USA Golf Course in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota and last but not least Copper Canyon Trading in Williams, Arizona for giving us access to the prettiest Christmas tree on Main Street to photograph Tinker Bell. We could not have done it without your gracious help and generosity!
