Rural Toys

If you grow up in the countryside, chances are that you’ll be playing with country toys….

….and when you don’t play with them any more, you collect them..

The Rusty Pram

The Fun Foto Challenge this week has the theme of ‘texture’. There’s lots of that in this battered old doll’s baby carriage, not to mention the concreted wall behind it and the gravel beneath.

My grandson picks out a tune (kind of…) on the new toy keyboard that he’s just got for Christmas.

Farming In Miniature

Some may recall that last October I put up some of my photographs at a local ‘Expo’ of hobbies and ‘passions’. One of the displays was a table-top homage to agriculture – still the main form of activity around here- including these models of agricultural machinery. Whether they are toys for children or adults I leave it to you to decide.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

Recently, I went to a display of old cars and farming machinery in the village of Lesterps, not far from here. I now have many, many pictures of ancient tractors and some quite cool vintage cars, but this image of a child’s tricycle from yesteryear is perhaps a bit more than just a record shot.
