Plastic 52 - Week 15 (by ElDave)

...aaaaand it's snowing. So much for the autumn colors and the days I could go out in just a jacket. While I'm sure Wage doesn't mind shoveling snow (note to self: buy tiny snow shovel), my poor fingers can't handle the cold. The rest of me is fine, but my hands? Forget about it!

We're thinking warm thoughts today here in Chicago and I wanted to share an equally warm picture with you guys. Taking Wage to the Chicago Botanic Garden is always an adventure. Sometimes people recognize him (and our other uglydolls) and other times people stop me and demand to know what I'm doing, which is always kind of awkward. Especially when I'm arguing with the toy for not standing or not being poseable enough for the shot I want.

Today's Plastic 52 was taken, as I said before, in the Chicago Botanic Garden with natural light. We were in the Enabling Garden (which is probably my favorite section, but don't tell the others) and I noticed this Wage-sized gap in the bush. I quickly scooped Wage out of my bag, placed him in the gap and snapped like mad.

Cleanup in Photoshop was just a quick Auto Levels and a bump in Saturation. Nothing fancy!

Why do I hear the Jaws theme when I look at this?
