The project was first and
foremost inspired by the Austrian photographer Willy Puchner. In his
book 'Joe and Sally, a long way from home' he shows beautiful
pictures of his two plastic Penguins. Please visit his homepage here
or click here
to see the pictures of Harry and Sally
who took pictures of his (real) dogs was an inspiration, too.
Only after a started taking pictures of my nodding dogs, I saw the
french film 'Amelie'. The travelling gnomes there
apparently inspired the
and notably the photoblog Gnomar.com
. Pure quantity is found on
where 2500 ipod-users took pictures of their fancy toy.
