Conni - the musical Mainzelmännchen


Day 11 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

Today I focused again on macro photography. More precisely, the depiction of toy figures. This time I used my Nikon 50mm F1.4.

The motif was Conni.

Conni is one of the six famous mascots of the 2nd German state television channel, called the Mainzelmännchen.

He has the most childlike demeanour in the group and is especially looked after by Det paternalistically, which implies that he is the youngest of the group.

The figure was produced in 1964

For the exposure, I use natural window light. To brighten up the left side, I took white cardboard.

These Mainzelmänchen must have been around for quite a long time, because I remember seeing them on German television in the second half of the 1970s (I was born in 1972) smile
