Los Angeles-based photographer Erin Sullivan wanted to make the best of stay-at-home orders these past few months,and that’s when the idea of these miniature nature photos came to mind. She discovered that normal objects, like broccoli, combined with toy figurines, can create some seemingly interesting photos, thus her “nature photography” series was created.

Photos in this series range from Pillow Ice Caves, which involved pillows, pillowcases, and two tiny figurines in a canoe. Other materials used include stacks of pancakes with syrup looks doubling as a river and asparagus greeting a pair canoeing.

When California started going into lockdown mid-March, I began thinking about how I could stay creative and connected to travel/the outdoors while I stayed home,” Sullivan tells My Modern Met. “I had the idea to create adventure scenes using household objects and ordered a handful of model train figures so that I would have a sense of scale in the images. I kept having ideas for new scenes, so I continued the series,” said Sullivan to MyModernMet.
