Jane Davies/Bunny Hiker

There I was, driving through Arizona when this jumped out at me trying to hitch a lift!
Needless to say I scarpered quick as he scared the bejesus outta me.
Plus there was no way he would have fit in my car! He was as tall as a house!

Wayne Thayer/Wedding Party

Wayne Thayer/Wedding Party

This creepy fellow was spotted one afternoon by Rachel Blondé while shooting the photographs for Katherine and Andrew's big day. It looks like they got along fine - nothing but smiles there!

Adam Excell/ Greetings from Killarney

Hi Friends,

It seems to have been a while since I have been involved with MIRP, but it flew by. This is a little post to let you know Wayne and I are still around, and are ready to have some fun.

This little guy can been seen on occasion in Killarney Provincial Park. Thanks to the high acidity in the parks lakes and endless quartz mountains, he manages to keep himself healthy. I managed to get a shot of him for an afternoon scramble at the end of August.


Stay tuned for lots of MIRP action..

In the meantime, feel free to check out my website:

Merel Barends/Worm Monsters!



After I bought an "Eyes in the dark" t-shirt from a local designer, strange things started to happen. Curious, big-eyed creatures showed up & followed me everywhere I went, like I was the Pied Piper of Hamelin. Or in this case rather: the Eyed Piper of Amsterdam.

My friend took these particular snapshots of me & said monsters at Utrecht Station. (English) (Dutch)

Jennifer McMyler/Baseball Monster


I guess everyone loves baseball. Or maybe they are just getting hungry.

Jane Davies/Boaties


I was quite shocked taking this photo in London as no one was looking up at them! They all made a really quiet humming noise that I thought was rather quite comforting. Then before you knew it they were gone!
I miss them now.

You know you love Jane.
