.. where Ikea is modelling for a photographer

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!
guess what! last weekend i got to go and check out the snow in Türisalu with my friend Kalev, a photographer (among other things, hehe). Apparently there were no other gr8 models around, so i got to be the model, jei! so, here comes couple of fotografs from this shoot, one lighter and one in more darker one. This darker one is about jumping off the cliff, but fear not – it is just modelling, not real! Just a little bit scary, if u ask me. Giraffes are not really good at jumping off the cliffs. It’s more of a goat thing, don’t u think?

But try to find me on this fotograf, hehe! There were, in fact more fotografs taken, as u can see from this first pic, but they all look quite similar to me somehow.. It’s probably because of the camera? But i quite like these fotografs. My friend Sipsik says they are quite good for a first modelling job. What do you think? Have u been modelling yourself for a photographer? Let me know in comments! have fun and cu l8r!

.. where Ikea finds a dandelion

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

i guess u have been wandering where i have been! well, i have been in two places. stuck and on vacation! yes, we, giraffes also have a vacation sometimes. this was exactly the time. and i can explain about being stuck as well – i was travelling between places, hehe! in fact, i was travelling between so many places that i have lost count of how many places. i can tell u one thing – it was lots of fun!
like for example, this one time i found this nice yellow flower. apparently they are called dandelions! i can tell u that they are not lions, but flowers and they taste all right. the only similar thing with lions is i guess the name. and of course – the color, but i have heard they also turn white after a little while (not the lions – the dandelions), which again makes them not like lions at all. we’ll here it is:

looks quite nice, don’t you think? since i had time, i tried to take a nice fotograf of this dandelion as well. i think it came out quite nice – that’s the fotograf below. what do you think? it was lots of fun taking this fotograf because i did not have any friends with me, except a tripod. tripod is not an animal, but a thing for taking fotografs – if you are curious. So, it took almost all my time to get both me and the flower on the same fotograf. do you know why? because every time i went to the tripod, whole bunch of sheep sneaked up to the dandelion and tried to eat it! EVERY TIME! so, most of the time i was explaining to the sheep *NOT* to eat the dandelion. But it worked just as long i was sitting there, right when i walked up to camera – out of nowhere – new sheep came along, hehe! Not so easy to fotograf dandelions with the hungry sheep sneaking around!
but i did lots of other fun things, while on vacation. i also took some more fotografs, so i will try to post them next time. until then, let me know if u have taken any gr8 fotografs recently? have fun and cu l8r!
