Blogging has its privileges and through my blog, I've gotten to know a lot of people from many countries and from all walks of life who have dropped a note or comment and with whom I've found a connection even though we may be thousands of miles away :)
Most recently, I have been blessed to know a Photographer Extraordinaire from Canada who has CRAZY photography and digital imaging skills.
Daniel Picard is a freelance photographer and his summer project this year has been to make his toys look alive in the real world at real size i.e. 1:1 scale (Check out his website: http://www.danielpicard.com/ - the intro has a few, and you can see more under Toys). Dan mostly collects Ashley Wood robots but he does pick up some good 'ol military / G.I. Joe / Star Wars stuff once in a while. Here are a few of his favorites which he has graciously allowed me to post just to show you what I mean when I say his pictures are STUNNING!
Pay a visit his site: http://www.danielpicard.com/ and be blown away by his photography skills. Dan doesn't just take pictures of toys; his photos of animals, people, events, places and vehicles are just as AWESOME! IMHO He is truly an ARTIST with amazing talent. I envy his friends and loved ones because every time he takes a picture, it's a piece of ART, fit to be framed and displayed!
I just felt that I should share his skills with all the readers out there. ENJOY!
