Hey boys!  Come and get me!


As you can probably guess by now this week had a theme going on -- Legos!!  The Munchkin has been thoroughly into Legos these past few weeks and I've been noticing that I've started to get giddy whenever we get our hands on a Lego Minifigure packet too.  I've been (im)patiently waiting for series 8 to arrive in stores and got overly excited when we spotted a freshly opened and totally untouched box of them at Toys R Us!  Brett's convinced that I was more excited than the Munchkin was about finally getting our hands on some of these little gems.  Um...ok, maybe I was.  So it seemed only natural to make this week all about Legos.  

This series of photos definitely had some challenges.  Because Legos are made of shiny plastic they had the tendency to really reflect light and shadows, and have so much texture to them that the camera would sometimes have a hard time focusing on the spot that you wanted to focus on.  I really had to play with lighting, had to move from one spot to another in the house, and had to fiddle with the Lego pieces and figures to accomodate all the above factors in order to get the photo I wanted.  Considering that I like to take photos a bit up-close (and maybe personal?), who knew that mini Lego quasi dioramas would be a challenge to photograph?
