ds106: Buddy photo

Visual assignment 48 brief

Find a little figurine or a stuffed animal that you can carry around with you. Use that ‘buddy’ and take photos to document where you have gone together. ie: going out to lunch, going to the movies, etc.

My Michelin Man

I carried my Michelin Man buddy with me for a month or so in 2008. It was sheer coincidence that I happened to travel to coastal Victoria during that time. I was probably inspired to take ‘buddy photos’ after hearing about the infamous travelling gnome prank. My Michelin Man buddy photos first appeared on my Greetings from… Flickr stream.
