We've had some interesting themes so far, and our creative juices have been running at full pace, but I must admit that this week's theme has been more of a challenge than the preceding weeks' themes. At least for me it was.
Week Nine - Little Children's Dreams
I kept staring at the screen last week after posting week eight's post, and gearing my brains for the next photoshoot. Seriously Amie, were you trying to trick us, or just challenge the hell out of us...? (Kidding of course). For the life of me, I couldn't come up with a photographic idea, that was interesting, different, somewhat unexpected, that of course, conveys the subject. Even brain-storming with my friends didn't really help. And then I thought about candy! Oodles, heaps, loads of candy! Wouldn't that be a child's dream...? Well, my someone thought so (and he's a child at heart). I remembered there was this somewhat new candy shop on Sheinkin that is designed like a pharmaceutical shop- white light all around, and the candy's displayed in glass tanks on the walls. I thought it would be the perfect place to photograph my idea, but when I got to the place, the shop's owner wouldn't allow me to shoot inside the shop... So plan B! I headed over to my someone's favorite candy supply shop, which is a shop that's more like a completely packed up, floor to ceiling, little warehouse, where you can find just about anything your heart (or should I say 'sweet tooth') desires. I took my someone along with me, and he of course chose candy by flavor, while I chose candy that would photograph well, and had the colors I was looking for. We ended up really buying oodles of candy!!
Next we headed to a small home decor shop we had found a while back on Nahalat Binyamin, where we got some jars to fill up with all that candy.
We had a blast filling the jars up, of course snacking on some candy while doing that... At the end I grabbed my camera and started shooting away. Here's a few for you to see...

Now lets hope my someone eats all this candy before I do....
