For this challenge, I asked for my sons’ help. It has been a long time since either one of them played with toys, apart from Nintendo’s, PC’s, PlayStation, and whatever these gaming wonders are called.
Shooting this photo took me back to my kids’ childhood days. As you can see, there is dust on this poor fellow’s cute head now. But he’s still up there, on the shelves. Too old to play, but too young to say goodbye to echos of their younger days.
Another photo of a toy, but this time a big one: it is a water device and this boy was totally intrigued, absorbed by its mechanism.
concept of men, you’re only
a dream come untrue
Time charges ahead
Waiting for nothing, no one
but the playful ones
