My Sunday Photo – Duplo Fun

My Sunday Photo for this week is titled Duplo Fun

It’s been a fairly quiet week for me photo-wise, but I did manage to capture this moment of Duplo fun. It was no great feat to capture this, Hannah and I play together with Duplo almost every day. What I often forget to do is have the camera ready to capture our creations.

It’s a shame really, because we never build the same thing twice. Each time we come up with a unique way of putting all the parts together. That is one of my favourite things about Duplo/LEGO, but it also means that our daily masterpieces of engineering and architecture are forgotten forever, soon after the blocks are packed away for the day. I’m happy to have this reminder of just one of our creations, and I plan on remembering to take a few more photos of the weird and wonderful things we make together as time goes on.

This Duplo set has been particularly brilliant. It is the Family Fun Fair set that Hannah was sent for Christmas.

 

Duplo Fun
Just one of our many, many Duplo creations!

 

For those interested in the technical side of this photo, it was taken with my Nikon D5100 and 40mm f2.8 prime Mirco-NIKKOR lens. I used f3 for the narrow depth of field and shot hand-held (but resting on carpet) at 1/15s. ISO 1000.

    Hi James, Duplo/ Lego is food for the imagination. We still have a box of the stuff I can’t bring myself to part with and my youngest is 18.

      NEVER, EVER PART WITH LEGO! Pass it on when the time is right, your kids will thank you for keeping it!

    Love the focus on this shot. Both images are such fun even if they were simple to take. Love it! Tempted to try some Duplo photography myself. #mysundayphoto

      They were simple, it’s just a matter or remembering to get down low and see it from that level. Even simple things become interesting from the right perspective (as your own #MySundayPhoto shows!)

    Just where every city gent really wants to be during office hours! He may of course be a school boy but looks out the office to me, lots of creative fun either way.

      He is an “adult”, because he is larger than the kids. I think he is supposed to be a father. This may well be a reflection of my own personality that the dad is on the slide and not the child…

      That’s my plan. It’s really all about me!

    Oh I love Duplo – my two had it from very small. Little did I know it would lead to Lego obsession and not being able to cross a room barefoot for years…

      I’m kind of counting on the LEGO obsession.

    It’s great that you create different things every day. I only had one Lego lover and he liked to follow the instructions and create what he was supposed to create. He didn’t build much experimental stuff (although he did with K’Nex!).

      We follow the instructions the first time, but after that it’s whatever happens!

    We have a massive duplo love in our house and nothing is ever built the same twice here either. Our toddler loves all the duplo animals and people so I’m forever looking for the next one!

    Duplo is a big hit in our house too – so many possibilities. Lovely that you’ve captured this creation to remember #MySundayPhoto

    Fun and colourful. I am always impressed by people who know about photograpy too as I am clueless! #MySundayPhoto

    We haven’t got into lego yet (Playmobil is our thing). It looks like a lot of fun though. I love the little glasses on the character. #MySundayPhoto
