Unfortunately try as she could my daughter was unable to fix my computer from over the hundreds of kilometres between us so had to get a computer expert in yesterday afternoon to sort it.
It’s now ‘up and running’ but with a slightly different format from what I’m used to so a matter of learning to cope with it yet again.
Even though I still have more Festival photos to post I thought that I’d take an easier route for a while until I feel really better and start to take a closer look at my Sasha girls.
First up is my 1966 Frido Developmental Dungaree girl bought from Shelly’s Sashadolluk website about a year ago from the next four photos.
This is the first doll from here to get changed ready for this Autumn weather as our forecast is for cold blasts, snow and ice over the next week. She is wearing a OOAK Ruthsdoll’s outfit very kindly given to me by Steve off one of the Gotz dolls that he recently bought as I loved it.
Many thanks as always Steve for your thoughtfulness and kindness.
The good news is though that I have now bought this doll off Steve, as although I really loved her at first sight I hesitated a little too long with my decision to buy her. Now very shortly she will be coming to live with me and be re-united with her dress etc.
She was my second Deveopmental girl as I already have a blonde Jeans girl with the grey/blue eyes and oxidised silver eyebrows.
I think that these dolls seem to have a slightly larger sized head than the ones manufactured in the following year.
Sorry but I’m still not following the rule and noting that ‘More is less’ and photos are cascading down into this post like ‘There was no tomorrow!’
I just love photograhing these Sasha dolls so my apologies for taking up your precious time having to look at them all. (My advice is to probably just ‘Skim and scan’ and breath a sigh of relief at the end and think that she has obviously enjoyed herself again!)
My favourite hobby/pastime these days is dressing these dolls and then photograhying them.
Afterwards I like to look at them on the computer screen to see which are the best poses to show off the doll to it’s best advantage.
My youngest brother who is a professional photographer (when life allows) once mentioned that you sometimes have to take as many as a hundred pictures just to get one really outstanding one. (Not sure if I ever achieve the latter though but do try!)
I think that I’ve taken his advice rather literally but after years of not having a digital camera and having to be extra careful of how many photos you took with a camera using a ‘roll of film’ … (due to the price of the actual film and printing costs) I feel liberated and free to take as many as I feel like doing… although I guess you are the unfortunate ones that have to suffer the after effects.
