Mr. Toy's Mental Notes
A journal of miscellany that falls out of his head.
Mr. Toy's Story:
In the fall of 1959, Mr. Toy entered this world at a place called Carmel on California's Monterey Peninsula. Nine years later his family pulled up stakes for the rain-soaked city of Salem, Oregon where he never quite fit in.
When he was 12, he and his mother viewed an exhibit of photographs by a Salem newspaper photographer, which inspired him to take his first photography class. During his teenage years he gradually developed his eye for composition and his skills with light and exposure. Though he did not pursue photography as a career, he continued to document his observations of the world on small frames of film.
In 1984, Mr. Toy and his wife Heidi returned to the Monterey Peninsula where his heart belonged. In 1997, on a bit of a whim, Mr. Toy established a community-oriented website called The Monterey Peninsula Toy Box providing readers with fun and useful information about this fascinating corner of the world. The Monterey Peninsula collections here are an important component of this endeavor.
Browsing these collections is therefore encouraged. If you see something you like, a few clicks will bring the picture, professionally framed if you desire, right to your front door. Greeting cards personalized with your own message, along with a variety of home decor and gift items, are also available. If you wish to purchase digital copies with publication rights, licenses to most of these images may be obtained from Pixels Licensing. Whichever form you choose, every purchase will help Mr. Toy eat for a few more days.
Mr. Toy has more than three decades of wonderful images waiting to be seen. They will gradually be revealed here, so keep an eye and a browser bookmark on this space and see what surprises develop.
