Photographing Toys

As you can see we've been having a lot of fun bringing Marshall, the toy voyager around the city. Here he is in front of the botanical building...



In the sculpture garden, in front of the Globe Theater...



And appreciating art at the museum...



It's surprisingly entertaining the photograph him in public while strangers stare curiously and then do their best not to make eye contact with the crazy lady. We just got news from his "mentor" in Prague that in ten days he'll be heading off to Germany. The kids are sad to see him go, but what's astonishing is that Mike and I are too! Two more voyagers are on there way here though... So we get to keep acting like kooks. :)

Last night I was awoken by helicopters again. A neighbor told me they are equipped with a spotlight and a bullhorn to "catch" criminals in the act. Like in those action movies. Unfortunately instead of feeling exciting it feels pretty oppressive. I guess it's just something we need to get used to though.

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
