I have a new miniature muse of gigantic proportions. A friend of mine just tipped me to the photography of Julia Fullerton-Batten, and I am completely sparkly about it. The series I'm most taken with is called "Teenage Stories." To find this batch on her site, navigate to Projects and then to Teenage Stories. The small-scale sets she created for these images are fascinating. Slightly creepy (some of them). But still utterly fascinating. And, honestly, seeing these is putting my current gnome-home building project to slight shame.
