Happy New Year to all. Thank you to everyone that takes a moment to watch this space. 2013 was a great year, I can not wait to see what 2014 has in store. Skip the resolutions and make a difference instead. See you on the other side of 12.

WordPress is acting up tonight. Posting from an ipad. Short and sweet. Regular Show One of my sons favorite shows, I think it is just too strange, but he was cracking up while I was photographing these guys. He picked the one to make the daily.

Continuing to photograph toys that are not mine, like Spongebob yesterday, these belong to my little friend Jack. His parents asked me to photograph them since they are some of his favorites.  I love the faces on these guys, they have such personality. Jack is a huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan, not only was his birthday party today TMNT themed, but Leonardo surprised him by showing up and playing games. Check out some more shots of Jack’s favorite Legos and pictures and video of Leo at his party.

So, it has been asked “why all the toys shots Tim?” I failed to mention, for the last few years of the dailypic I have taken the week between Christmas and New Year and posted only toy shots. I was not sure if I was going to make a full week out of it this season. It is a motivation thing. Then some friends asked that I photograph some of their kids toys. These are Jack’s (Age 6) Lego guys. Spongebob and Patrick dressed as the “Heroic Heroes of the Deep”. I also have some of his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Legos I need to shoot next. So, I might have enough requests to make it to the New Year, we will see. I wish these two were dressed like Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy… I might need to search for those from myself, for the art of photography of course. I am far too old to play with toys.

One of the Christmas presents this year were tickets for the family to see Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of OZ, playing in Providence. The show was great, it was my son’s first time seeing it, everyone else was already a fan, Barbie and I saw it on Broadway about 10 years ago. Highly recommended, even if you do not like musicals. It is awesome how the story is woven into The Wizard of OZ, which you will never look at the same once you see Wicked. Anna and I recreated a scene from the performance with a Lego Wicked Witch (minus warts) for Elphaba, and a modified Marylin Monroe, Mermaid head and blonde hair that I drilled a hole into add a bride’s crown to complete Glinda the Good.

Just enough snow today to get this shot. I took a similar version a few weeks back, it was going to be a toywednesday dailypic,  it was at night and with a different sled.  I never ended up using it,  was not happy with it, then today the snow fell, the light was perfect and I figured I would try again. By the time I got it set up and ready, the light was gone, I ended up using a flashlight to fill in some shadows. The older version is below.

Posting early today, then going to enjoy the rest of the day.  Christmas morning has come and gone in the Rice house, Dan is sitting on a couch building a new world in Minecraft on his new laptop, Anna is enjoying a new make up kit and shooting with her new Fuji instant camera… my wife, well she got a car and smiles each time she sees it in the driveway. I got some new toys too. Some from the family, others from, well, you can read the tag. Trust me, what is under that paper can easily fit under the #toywednesday. If not, then maybe the families new Sphero 2.0 robotic ball, check it out online. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

The kids had school, I think Medway was the only town in the country that had a full day of school today, so my wife and I headed to the mall. I wanted to get my photo with Santa, but I did not want to wait in the line that stretched 1/4 mile through the mall. The good news was it kept the people out of the stores. They really were not that bad. I got to spend time in Newbury Comics, the Lego Store and Brookstone, then lunch at P.F. Changs… but no photo with Santa.
