There are very few things you can do with all that candy you got on Halloween but don’t actually like. You know, those subpar candy necklaces and 3 Musketeers…I mean, we’re all in for the Twix and Reese’s, am I right? Sure, you can videotape yourself telling your kids you ate all their candy, or you can just power through and eat it, but typically you wouldn’t think to make a whimsical dreamland out of it…that is, unless you’re this guy.
A photographer by trade, this dad decided to take some of his kid’s Halloween candy and create a cool landscape with it.
It doesn’t look like much from here…but a quick zoom-in reveals:
A whole town of mini people mining candies.
He bought the tiny characters at a local hobby store and used various sweets in key shots.
He’d always wanted to try his hand at macro photography…I think he’s found his calling!
Just chillin’ by a giant bubble gum.
According to the photographer, the figurines are pretty much all about as tall as a Nerd candy.
Chocolate is basically the same thing as water.
The man behind the photos says, “I’ve never spent so much time setting up a shoot.”
Judging by all this detail, we can totally understand.
Honestly, I would have just eaten it, but this is way cooler — and involves less of a sugar high.
