Will's Obsession {34/365}

Will's obsession

Even though he is 11 and 1/2, Will still LOVES Legos.  He escapes into a world of imaginary battles and buildings.  Sometimes, I need to remind him they are not real. He can spend hours and hours constructing scenes on the window seat in his room.

I am not happy with this photo..it is out of focus.  I took it with the 50mm lens (while Kate was crying and crawling in my lap) trying to shoot on a wide aperture (for the natural light in late afternoon).  I am trying to be easier on myself and realize the 365 is about our life and about learning more about photography and NOT about capturing the perfect photo. Still, the better I get the more I see the flaws.

Will and Nick would be fast friends.....he still loves legos! When people asked him what he wanted for his bday, he told them legos. He could sit for hours building!

Will is precious! Enjoy those building blocks as long as you can.

My oldest son played w/ Legos from day one until he was a teenager...fast forward, he still loves them in his twenties and is graduating with a mechanical engineer degree this spring. He says it is b/c he learned so much "math" playing Lego! Cool!

I love your photos, I have no talent in that area but so appreciate you sharing yours!

Jacob LOVES legos too.
We have tons.
Before I read your post I honestly was thinking great photo. Loved the crispness of the part that was in focus and the colors.
