This week’s theme with my Bloom 52 project with the ladies over on the Bloom forum is-
Of course when I thought of playful I thought of my children playing, more specifically my son. He has an amazing imagination and is constantly making up some story line for himself. He recently started watching dvds of the original Transformers cartoons from the 80’s. He is obsessed with all things Transformers. Since he doesn’t have very many of actual Transformer toys yet he has made all of his other toys into Transformers. He stands them all on their ends, and pretends away. My favorite part of all of it is hearing the sounds that accompany the play. He has all the Transformer sounds down pat…. in fact if you look closely at the images he can see his lips and tell he is making some kind of sound.
This theme fit wonderfully with my new goal of taking more fun, casual pictures of my kids. I have gotten bad at only taking pictures when I have the perfect set up, light, clothes, etc. I realized the other day that these images, while fun and I definitely love them, won’t capture entirely who they are when I look back at them 10 years from now. It is the pictures like these that will remind me of who they are.
