Back together again

The Hero of our tale! (with accompanying support from Inky)

It’s not easy being me….

I took a fall from a window

and went into flight

aided by the northwest wind

I went to pieces, without assistance

My head and legs went different places

I thought – “that’s it!” – and went to bits

as i thought i’d played my aces

But from the kerb and the grass

i saw a hand pass

and head and body did rise

(to my upmost surprise!)


I looked up at the lad,

as i went good from bad

and we headed back home

a new place to roam

So i sit on the shelf, thankful for health

with other model toys – oh joy of joys

enjoying my place – in my safety of space

and spending time as i can – a new lego man.

Lego Man – Out in Space! – Image by Brian F Kirkham

He always wanted to travel

Lego man living on the shelf

his greatest descent – not a fall from grace

but sent into flight from a feather duster

till one day he flew

onto a book that made his dreams

into reality (of sorts) – as he landed and

walked into a patchwork of stars

I can see them now

scattered around on the floor

those little bricks that stuck together

some square – some rectangles

some red, some yellow, some blue, some green

we made trees and houses

for the little lego people

that rode around in the cars

on the stubbily green grass outside the house

we’d just built

Building Blocks, at the Cabin, BASIC Clicks. (p) BFK 2016

 

It begins simply enough,

a simple bucket of bricks

stacked up from top to bottom

till at last – they topple

oh what fun!

 

The next thing you know

you’re building a wall

with stuff from the sea

and occasionally it falls

oh what fun

We were back in the base camp of BASIC Clicks photography group on Friday creating scenes with backgrounds, toy cars and figures

taking every day items and creating something new, from behind the camera lens.

Another show at BASICs sponsor, John Lewis will be on display soon.

Here’s some of my favourites from Fridays session. Created with the trusty Sony Bridge camera.

I’ve had fun this morning at BASIC’s photography session.

It was a still life session with a difference – using a Racing Bike and some little toy characters

Framed with a backdrop provided by our leader and tutor Maggie.

Here’s the bike we used for the shots 🙂
