Welcome to my Childish and Weird Mindscape
I like to bring toys alive. I only do touch ups in Photoshop so the scenes are real :)
I document my thoughts on toys on my Toy Shrine blog
I created a free wallpaper app for the iPhone/iPodTouch called the ToyShrine
I sell some of the toys from my collection from time to time. If you are interested then keep an eye on my 'Toy Boot Sale' blog :)
I also wrote a Flickr GreaseMonkey script for adding Buddy Icons to replies. Check it out here,

"Doc18 is a master of depth of field, colors juxtaposition and characters relation chemistry. :)"
14th July, 2008
"doc18 is not merely a photographer, but a travelling photographer! he travels and shares all spectacular sights with his toys......oh and now you would wonder how old he is..(..he he he..;p...)...and while you start to wonder, you begin to love his toys yourself! ^o^ an amazing collection of toys + an amazing collection of photos, doc!!! ^_______________^"

"Doc18's toy photos always cheer me up. If there's someone who has truly managed to preserve the positive side of childhood, it must be him."
11th August, 2007
"There are many toy photographers and many people I know who dearly love toys. doc18 is pretty much the perfection of both those statements, in my opinion. Every pic is magic and we are lucky to be given the gift of sharing his weird and beautiful realm. doc18 is one of the few on flickr who make me happy every time I enter his world. He's neat, sweet and up-and-down the street with his dear friends, the toys. Thanks, doc, for being here. You definitely make it a better place!"

"i just cannot get my eyes off those pics u took!!!
they are all awesome!!!! :)"

"Doc18’s beautiful photo’s will always amaze me, the use of “normal” and “abnormal” backgrounds for his great collection of toys is brilliant. He takes you to places you have never been and maybe never noticed until now.
......And he’s one of the nicest people I know ;)......
Keep it up doc!"

"thank you doc18 for sharing really wonderful photos!!
i enjoy looking at your photos very much! although i can't afford all the toys or traveling all over the world, but i like looking at them! thank you!!"

"Doc18's photos bring me to places & scenes I have never experienced before. Quirky, whimsical, fun, creative! His toy friends make me smile & laugh and I am always curious to see where they end up next! They are so lucky to be photographed by doc18 and his magical eye."

"Thanks for my toy addiction. Well, there goes my saving for my house. HA HA... He has a great photo toy collection. Oh, yeah and his great travel & food collection. Wouldn't you know it the website Doc18 recommends for me to domestically buy my toys also includes some Japanese porn. Oh my!! Crazy! ;O Doc18 is also helpful with my flickr Qs too. What a great flickr friend! Thank you! :)"

"Doc18: your daily dose of fun, magical toys and exquisite food! =D"
21st August, 2006
"a great photograper and even better friend. from his pictures he introduced me to the urban vinyl revolution...now if i could just stop visiting his photostream because it's making me broke seeing all his cool toys that I want to buy also!"

"Doc18 will not only take you around the world, he will show you the most beautiful places, interesting situations and take you to the most sophisticated restaurants for dinner. Doc18 can always find the right angle to present the object of interest in a better light. The photos are always informative, soon you find out you are addicted to Doc18's page. He always has new photos that make you come back. On top of everything Doc18 makes a great friend here on Flickr with a great sense of humor who never forgets to stop by a friend's page with a couple of comments."
