Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Toys for Children and Adults

This week’s theme for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge is Toys!

Are you familiar with Sir Topham Hatt? He is in charge of the railway where Thomas and friends work and play. bw sth o

Everything is a potential toy to a three year old with an active imagination- even Christmas ornaments.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Abandoned or Alone

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!).

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Pets

Our dog, Ari, is the star of Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Pets this week. Ari entered our lives when she was less than a year old and now she is a mature lady of 8! She is affectionate, impertinent, obnoxious, nurturing to her baby (Beej), loyal and determined. Her personality is so much larger than her 25 lb body and it’s hard to remember a time when she wasn’t with us. She makes us laugh. She has given us heart failure when she has gotten lost (2 times). For such a small pup, she takes up a huge place in our hearts.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Farm Related

Upon seeing that this week’s theme was all things farm related for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: All Things Farm Related,  I almost resorted to pulling out the Fisher Price farm and animals for a photo shoot, but luckily we have visited some farms in recent months and I was able to get photos of some of the more friendly inhabitants.

This cutie seemed to love the camera and posed every chance he got!

This fellow seemed mildly amused at our interest in him.

Apparently it was just too exhausting to even lift his head so he settled on lifting one ear.
