Thread: Say hello to the new CiC mascot from Cambridge!

    Say hello to the new CiC mascot from Cambridge!

    Sean hasn't said yes, but what does that matter? Post your own teddy shots if you have any (teddies that is).

    He comes from the English Teddy Bear shop in Kings Parade, Cambridge (opposite Kings College). Therefore a suitable mascot for CiC?

    Say hello to the new CiC mascot from Cambridge!

    And a couple of his pals...

    The last one is very unhappy - that's why I call him 'Serious Bear'. I try to cheer him up with lots of badges. But it doesn't help much...

    this guy is very serious...
    why don't you try to let him wear some kind of sunglasses?
    he could seem one of the Matrix characters...

    What do you think this is - an on-demand service? If you think this is over the top, you should see these...http://www.lakelandbears.co.uk/cards.html I visited the shop years ago, and it took me a week to stop laughing. They actually dress them up and go out on location shoots with them. I think I'd rather do wedding photography.

    A slideshow of all the shots so far... Bears When it starts click the view full screen button in the bot-right corner.

    All shots below are 1024px, so you can do a 'view image' if you know how to do that. See the pawtraits in full size!

    This one could be a well-respected Mod, but I'm saying nothing. Donald is a very common Scottish name. Actually, he really is called Donald, from years ago.

    Well that's why I posted it .... They will love it. I suppose the second one above could be Sean as he got his post-grad at Cambridge? That just leaves Dave and Colin. I'm the first one, with the shades!

    There's a discussion going on in this thread about the Canon nifty-fifty lenses. All of the shots in this thread were taken with a f/1.8 50mm nifty-fifty, on a Canon 50D, with simple studio lights.

    Slideshow of all the shots Bears Press the full-screen button in bot-right corner when slideshow starts. ESC to get back to normal view.

    And the last three...

    Excellent choice, Sara. There's boldness, stability, strength, and cuddliness to boot!

    That just leaves Dave and Colin.
    ........to fight over who gets to be Wonky (with bells). Although Wonky appears to be a bit of a new age traveller so it could be Kit. What were they thinking when they offered the 350D in metallic plastic. What were the other options; candy pink and like green Talking of candy pink I think your Panasonic would have suited his bow better. I know I am being nosey here but where on earth do you keep all these bears? We have a large basket in our bedroom where ours live. I think there may even be a talking bagpuss in there somewhere. The girls used to collect those Beanie babies but they have been stored in the loft.

    Ah hem getting back to photography I hope other members realise how expertly photographed these bears are. Excellent lighting and exposure.

    You know something Katy, I think that you are (as usual) quite right. A most striking resemblence. A very handsome visage.
