“It is a happy talent to know how to play”– Ralph Waldo Emerson
I have a lot of toys surrounding me, and whilst I would like to be able to say I use them every day that that would be a NO.
Unless of course I count my photography toys/props. These include LEGO, toy soldiers, miniature people, zombie dolls and baby dolls, and even my little drinking buddies get up to some tricks.
Here are some of the ways I find to play with my toys.
Play is our brain’s favourite way of learning– Diane Ackerman
And what do I learn? Which is the best lighting to use, which lens to attach, how to pose the players, (thank goodness for posable toys) or how to use stop motion to tell that story.
“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing”George Bernard Shaw
We are never too old to play. Get out those toys and play free.
“When you’re free, you can play and when you’re playing, you become free.”Heidi Kaduson
So what is in your toy box?
