This weeks topic is a fun one-toys. It was not a hard topic to generate an idea for, I love toys, especially legos, it was just a matter of when I am going to find time to photograph legos. I thought about going big, set up some lights, compose a photo and spend some time really photographing my collection of legos I have here with me. But then I thought that was not fair to all of you out there. My photo should say more, so I will share with you a photo from my office-at work. I have slowly collected some legos in my office. They are toys, and also decorations. I have a collection sitting on my window ledge-photographed here-
I have a few small vehicles, but mostly Star Wars stuff. I was told when I took over my office I could decorate, as long as it was, well tasteful. I have to say when people come into my office and see my legos they ask about them and sometimes play with them.
This is only one side of the office, on the other side of my monitors I have more legos- little Star Wars characters. I find time to play with these guys. I am a multi-taskers, so if I am waiting for a project to compress or render I typically have a minute or two to kill. I take this time to rest my eyes, look away from the computer screens, or finding myself needing a break to brainstorm an idea; I started to find myself playing with these little guys. Let me just clarify here, I am not constantly playing with Legos at work, this maybe happened every few days. But I would position the guys in a new spot on my desk or with in reach. Currently the are sitting on top of the TV in my office, guarding the elephant. I would grab my phone and take a photo of how I set them up, I compiled some of my favorites in this montage for you all to enjoy.
