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.

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 🙂
I came armed with my Sony DSC-300 and my Xperia Phone as backup
A Close up of the spokes on the wheel
While I was taking the shots – I heard a tiny voice in the classroom….
“HELP!!!” he yelled
A little Lego Man – dropped through the sky (ok…it was the background curtain…)
He Landed on the wheel…
Before landing on one of the Bicycle Pedals….
Upon Closer Inspection of our photography subject – we found he wasn’t alone! 🙂
Stuck by the Brake pads 🙂
