Through The Lens Thursday: Week 6
|February 5, 2014||Posted by Jennifer under Photography|
Kids’ toys have come a long way since I was a wee one. Even the basics like Legos® have gone and gotten all fancy schmancy in the past 40 years. When I was a toddler, I’m sure I played with the standard small ones. Gasp! I know.
Now a days my two-year-old has Legos® Duplo®. These larger Legos® come in a rainbow of colors and are twice the size of the standard Lego® and easier for toddler hands to manipulate. Frankly, I think they’re easier for adult hands too. For some reason, they’re a little easier on bare feet as well. Less like nails and more like rocks.
They are sold in themed sets that come with things like trains, cars, doll houses, boats, animals and various molded pieces such as windows for your Lego® “walls,” fences for your Lego® “neighbors” and flowers to spruce up your Lego® “landscapes.” In mere seconds, kids can build something recognizable. It’s instant Lego® gratification!
For this week’s Through The Lens Thursday photography challenge, I decided to photograph my son playing with his Legos® Duplo® set called My First Zoo. It comes with a giraffe, zoo keeper, tiger, and even a slab of Lego® meat for the tiger to “eat.” Seriously. See.
It also comes with three Lego® flowers. I think the yellow one might be behind the couch.
I welcome your comments, critiques, gasps and shrieks in the comments section below.
