More Child's Play

By chase
Another from this mini last,I got hold of a fabulous,old wooden train !
It belongs to my Father-in-Law who was 4 years old when he first saw his Father (he had been away fighting the 2nd World War),the train was the gift the Father brought back for his much treasured Smile

The marbles were from a Christmas cracker & the wooden bricks belonged to my Brother.

Lit with one small lightbox ( no daylight today Sad )
Faffed with in Photoshop.

Thanks for taking the time to look/comment.
May I wish you all a very happy & prosperous New Year !
Janet xx

Subtle colours and nicely arranged and worked Jan ....... pity you couldn't have squeezed in a little teddy or rag doll as I think a little figure of some sort would work quite well.

Happy New Year to you and I just know you'll be good all year???

Lol Dave,I thought I had done enough with the Teddy etc...I need 4 of these for a competition panel for 2013 so whilst they need to tell a story & have a link I have to be careful that they aren't repetative & samey.

Ha...I'm always good...or so my Mum tells me Wink

Thanks everyone.

A really lovely still life Janet. Really great objects that you obviously took time to acquire and arrange. Highly accomplished 'faffing' as well.

I just wish my still life`s were as good as yours. You get a lovely `feel` to your images with the textured backgrounds. I have tried it but cannot get anywhere near your quality. As my old teacher used to say `must try harder`.

Dave,I knew someone would mention losing my marbles..yep,it had to be you Tongue I will use it for the next one which is similar but different.

Keep going at it Roger,you will get where you want to be in the end,it's a long climb !

HYN folks !!
