PostSubject: Where did WHO go?   Thu Aug 19, 2010 9:06 pm

I've seen something similar done on other action figure sites so why not for Doctor Who?

When you go on a trip, or visit somewhere special, take The Doctor with you! Take a pic of him traveling the world and show everyone where he's been!

I just spent the last week on the gorgeous island of Kauai in Hawaii. Before I left for the trip, I thought I'd tuck Doctor #5 in my suitcase. Given his swanky resort style hat, I thought he was the perfect choice!

Anyway, here's Peter exploring beautiful Anini Beach in Kauai, Hawaii!

From my trip to California last month (not so great shots of the figures...)


As I was crossing time zones twice on the trip there (and the trip back), I figured we'd need a Time Lord and assistant to make sure my trips in time went smoothly.


"Next time, I'll do the driving!" said 11, as we realized the bus we'd be catching in LA would be late.

Nice! I do this a lot with my Daleks, especially Gemini. I post my pictures in my thread though, since I tend to take a lot of pictures and don't want it to come across as spam! I've been hoping that the idea would catch on, so this is neat! I hope there are lots of posts! I love seeing toys out and about!

By the way Clavius, I'm slightly jealous of those beach pics! That sand and surf is absolutely gorgeous! It looks like you had him far enough from the waves that you didn't worry too much about him getting swept away, right?

Nice Peter pics. I did this last month with my K-9 on vacation:
Here we are going thru Atlanta!

It was beautiful, neither my wife or I had ever been to Hawaii before. Kauai is the "quiet" island. Not as touristy as Maui or Oahu. Small towns, beautiful scenery, which is what we were looking for. We were celebrating our 10th anniversary by the way.

But I was careful with #5. I kept him safe and sound the whole time. Can't say the same for my sunglasses though. One day while snorkeling, I set them up on a seawall that was about 8-10 feet high thinking, "oh the waves can't get them here", WRONG. When I came back I found the tide had gotten higher and my expensive prescription sunglasses were now swept off on a journey to Japan!

If only I had brought Peter's TARDIS, I could have gone back and stopped myself from setting them there.

BTW Ronpur, typical dog huh? Always loves to look out the window during a car ride!

Ohhh big congrats on your 10th Anniversary! That is so cool! I'm glad that there is at least one island in the Hawaii chain that is quiet. That's the place that I would go to to explore and to just relax. I'm definitely not big on touristy spots, so thanks for letting me know about that! Ahh yeah, never under estimate the ocean. I'm not sure what would be worse, losing your expensive prescription glasses to the ocean, or your 5th Doctor.

Most of the pictures I like to take of my DW toys involves nature. I like travelling places and taking pictures of at least one Dalek (typically Gemini) at various cool spots I go to. As much as I love the city, sometimes it gets awfully boring to take pictures, even of my Dalek there. It's more of the fact that we don't really get to go to any city that's really exciting. Add on the fact that people tend to get paranoid when you're taking pictures of buildings around here, I tend to prefer the silent majesty of the forest to the irritating griping of annoying Washingtonians. Not only that, but the trees don't question your motives, they simply let you exist amongst them.

So this is just a compilation of some shots that I have taken of my toys around the Cascade Mountains as well as Puget Sound.


Where Has My Spirit Gone? - Ice Caves Trail Head; Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest


Day at the Beach - Mukilteo Beach; Puget Sound


Much Bigger - Bear tracks at Verlot; Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest


Exploring the Northwest - Snoqualmie Summit; Cascade Mtn Range


Buried - Verlot; Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest


A Queenly Glow - Baseball field behind our house


The Distance We've Gone - Mt. Pilchuck Base Camp - Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest


That's the Summit! - Mt. Pilchuck Base Camp - Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest


Not From There - Alkai Beach; Puget Sound


Mistress! - Alkai Beach; Puget Sound


Off to Explore New Worlds - City Park; Lake Stevens

...and that is all for the moment. I update my thread, "The Many Adventures of the Daleks" on the "Fan Creation" section. I love photography and nature. I used to take event pictures, but I am not inclined to do so anymore. I'm also not big on taking pictures of people unless family or friends. My toys don't complain, and nature doesn't get paranoid.

I just took my younger niece plus rusty K9 on a short walk around the lake at our apartment complex today & snapped a few photos to share:


A very curious duck ...


I'm sure K9 has his nose blaster ready ...those geese were hungry!


Sitting on a bridge rail overlooking one of the the inlet streams, Mt. Rose looming majestically there (Tahoe's just the other side)


My niece doing some rudimentary rock climbing. Maybe next year it'll be Yosemite Mountaineering School for her! Wink


And a look back up at the bridge before heading home.

Lake Tahoe, Nevada, right? That looks gorgeous out there, much like Eastern Washington here, except more greenery!

I uh, am actually surprised you got K-9 that close to the geese. Unless that's forced perspective, there's no way I'd trust geese that much to get that close to them! So kudos, you beat my challenge! Very Happy

Some beautifully done pics a1 and neogeo! Really glad to see folks are running with this idea. I think it's a lot of fun!

I'm going to take a few pics around some familiar landmarks here in my hometown and post them soon!

Nope, the duck was 4 feet or so away, the geese 6 or 7 there. The geese actually got closer than the duck at one point. Off camera my niece was throwing bread to keep them close but also to distract them from the rusty little pooch. SiSi did get her fingers nipped once, and a goose went for her toes as well. Talk about an incensed little girl!

It is beautiful here. I'm actually way in south Reno in the South Meadows area much closer to Steamboat than I am to downtown Reno (thank goodness!). The one thing that I am sad about is the lack of snow on Mt. Rose--the last few patches melted away over the weekend. She's not nevada anymore ...

Its a great, fun idea. I felt a little silly when some people came by and gave me a double-take, but my niece & I had fun and that's what counts, no? And thanks for the compliments! I'm looking forward to posing K9 or some other figure(s) when the aspen change, the snow falls, the cherries & thistle blossom again, &c. Who knows, i may even make it up to Tahoe proper and take a Who with me if I make it up to Sand Harbor again.

Ahh so it was forced perspective then! Still, that's closer than I would get to geese, knowing how tempermental they are. I'm sorry your niece got nipped. Hopefully she didn't become afraid of them? Here you're not allowed to feed the ducks or geese because of over-population and the health concerns.

Ahh nice! Well, it is summer, can't expect the snow to stay there all year eh? Dad and I know that the ice caves will be much bigger in the winter. I miss the snow here. I just love winter more than summer. Nothing beats a clear winter day. It feels like morning all day long and when the fog rolls over the snow... *dies* ...it's absolutely gorgeous.

I suppose it was forced perspective. I learned photog with an SLR, but used an P&S Elph today.

SiSi is certainly not scared of the geese either! She read the nipper the riot act, waggling her finger in the goose's face & all. She hissed back when s/he hissed at her. It was too funny!

I'm a fall & spring fellow, with a strong attachment to winter as well. I missed the snow all the years I lived in NorCal (Bay Area) but have to admit, I seriously miss a good Sonoma County morning fog!

Just two pics I took today of Dixie up in Arlington along the Centinniel trail. My dad had to go to the Doctor's and instead of keeping me inside a cramped and very boring waiting area, he let me wander around town for the hour that we were there. Arlington is an old farming/railroad city with beautiful paintings on the backside of buildings. I didn't take any pics of mainstreet, as the attraction for me were the murals as well as the various sculptures along the trail. I love our Native heritage up here, which is why I hate "Twilight".


Moo, Anyone?

Okay this is what I mean by forced perspective. I took this shot down at Mukilteo yesterday.

Oh, I meant to post this immediately after, but here is the aftermath:



All I will say is that I was far back enough where I wasn't afraid that waves those size were going to sweep my toys away. Those waves were about normal, but then some of the 28'+ pleasure cruisers were coming through and sent a volley of bigger waves breaking at about 18" onto the shore. No, I didn't put my toys near that. Waves off of boats are unpredictable and our shore drops within a few feet.

Greatings all from the snowy state of Michigan! Kinda let this thread go a bit, was hoping to keep up on it more, but given our recent pounding by old man winter, I thought i'd get outside with the camera and have some fun...


The DoctorDonna arrive on the planet Backyardia, a cold and inhospitable world


Apparently the Tardis materialized on the edge of a snow cliff


A helpful Ood sees the DoctorDonna off to their next adventure. And none too soon too as the great pink snow beast grows nearer in the background.


Years later, The Doctor revisits Backyardia...

"No sign of life anywhere Amy, it's safe to come out!"


"The only thing that could possibly survive here are..."


"SNOW ANGELS!"


After narrowly escaping the Snow Angels, The Doctor and Amy explore further...

"We must be alert, Daleks can be hiding ANYWHERE!"
