Carousel Ponies

Would you believe these carousel ponies were shot using an Olympus Pen EE-2?

That's right. The picture has a toy camera feel, but was actually taken with a point 'n' shoot half-frame camera. The softness comes simply from being too close to the subject and the square format is thanks to Photoshop's cropping tool.

These ponies live outside a supermarket in the coastal town of Bateman's Bay, a couple of hours from here. They remind me of rocky candy — glossy, bright and simply delicious!
