Photography Challenge #34 - Toys

Melissa and Kristi set the Photography Challenge of toys for us this time. When I think of toys I think of children. We are empty nesters so my biggest child has these kind of toys. Anyone familiar with this breed?When I look at this picture I am struck by how boring it all looks with just black and all, however they are the portal to a world of color, information, relationships and activity!
I couldn't stand such a colorless post so here is one of five cars at my house for my grandson to play with. He loves his Mustang GT.
I still don't have a photo editor so I did the best I could. Outdoor photos work better for me right now. Sorry, I am just happy to try right now and participate with you all.

Photo challenge #33 - The 5 Senses

Another great "2 photographers 1 inspiration" photo challenge that made me think a lot. Kristi and Melissa have such beautiful photos that I am a little hesitant to put mine up. I definitely need to learn more about set up and lighting. Awesome job you two.

I chose taste. I thought a lot about this one. I even staged a photo but it didn't work so well. As you can see set up went totally out the window because this was very much a "quick! catch the moment" kind of photo. We were making cookies when my son started laughing and saying, "Look Mom, he's eating all your dough." And there you have it.
Thanks ladies for helping us stretch.
