Nothing says ‘abandoned’ like a toy that was left behind. And it’s those toys, some of Toy Story fame, which are featured in my entries for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Abandoned or Alone.
As is often the case, I had completely different photos set aside for this challenge when I happened to walk into the family room after Beej left with his dad. There were Buzz and Woody, laying there abandoned by the little boy who had just been giggling when he accidentally pushed one of Buzz’s buttons.
This caused me to stop and look around at all the other toys that were looking just as sad, waiting for their person to come back and play with them.
All I had to do was to look down when I glanced out the back window to find a teddy bear and friend, peaking out at me. Why he’s hiding there with a storm trooper (or is that a clone trooper— oh shoot, I know this!!!), I really don’t know…
Putting laundry away, a quick check in Beej’s bed found Knuffle Bunny, the most abandoned toy in our house due to the number of times he has been loved, wrestled with, posed, and yes, abandoned in his short time in our family.
A quick pop into Kris’s room found this lion, laying on a shelf with other discarded items.
And finally, I came across another Woody, this one long abandoned by Andy, who tossed him in his closet when he went to college (yeah, the irony of that is not lost on me!).
