167/365 – Dolly and the train

Originally uploaded by Micah Taylor


The 2yo’s imagination continues to amaze me. His current favorite book, Farmyard Tales, has a lot of great short stories about the adventures of the Boot family farm. One story is how a gentle cart horse named “Dolly”, owned by farmer Dray, pulls a broken down train back to the station.

By absolutely no prompting by his parental units, he re-enacted this story with his toys. I had to capture it. I’m pretty sure he’s a genius.

Strobist info: sb900 at 1/4 power with 1/4 CTO trough the 28” ezybox softbox at camera left. Triggered via manual CLS.
