Sue the Builder!

Sue's Dad had always promised her that he would build her a doll's house. It took a while, but finally when our daughter Hazel was about two and a half years old the doll's house arrived. Hazel is now 35, so we are talking a little while ago. The idea was that Hazel would have the house to play with, and when she had finished with it Sue would finally have her doll's house as promised. Sue's Dad is sadly no longer with us, but the doll's house is and recently Sue decided it was time for Major Renovations. Starting off, her brother Malcom made the structural repairs and also opened up both sides of the roof to create two attic rooms. Now Sue is making final repairs and then doing all the finishing. This is by way of a progress report as the builders are still in and the place is a bit of a mess. However, the attic rooms are well on the way so it's woth having a look.

The images have been shot using the pentax K-3 II with the SMC Pentax-DA 10-17mm Fisheye Zoom and the Pentax Q-S1 with its Zoom lens. The Q-S1 is particularly useful in that the camera is so small it can be placed right inside the rooms, potentially giving a unique perspective.

First, an overall view showing the two attic spaces with their covers in place. The facings are held by magnets and can be simply pulled off to gain access.

Three shots of the left hand attic.

It's a work in progress, so I'll come back to it in a few weeks to see how Sue the Builder is getting along. She can do it!

Excellent use of the Q camera, great interior images of the dollhouse. I guess the Q stands for Quirky....
