As a new edition to my Story Behind the Shot series, once a month I will be sharing a glimpse into Woody’s World. Living in Seattle, we have some gray and rainy winters. When I am not traveling to nicer weather, I will fill the occasional down time in the studio. These are an ongoing series with wooden mannequins and a whole lot of imagination.
Living in the northwest gives me plenty of opportunity to enjoy nature. Woody also likes to get back to basics. Here, Woody and his friend enjoy some oranges near the campfire after a hard day of hiking.
Everything in this shot is edible (except for Woody). For the dirt I used coffee grounds. For foliage I used broccoli, celery and mint leaves. The logs they are sitting on are rolled bread heels. The rocks around the fire are olives.
