Theme Day - Under construction


When playing with a small child, there is a gossamer line between construction and destruction.

The first day of the month is Theme Day for the City Daily Photo Blog community. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

Love the over the shoulder view of this one with the bright-colored construction in the background. Oh, and I do concur with your comments regarding construction vs. destruction...

it-s a beginning

here many children have a brittany name

Julie said...

Yes, a beginning, Bergson.

And yes, the links between Wales and Brittany are strong and go back thousands of years. It somehow does not surprise me to find the name 'Nolwen'.

Terrific theme day post. It's good seeing so many different interpretations of the theme.

I see she's applied a bit of slobber for extra pliability - obviously possesses superior problem-solving skills.

Sometimes the point of construction is to get to the destruction... it can be just as fun!

cara said...

True! There's no such thing as a finished product.

Lovely light over those smoothed out toddler-knuckles.

I agree with Virginia Julie, beautiful, soft gorgeous image. So much more appealing than bricks and steel! I can't believe a month has passed already since you helped me to get organized for my first theme day post.Thank you so much and I have to say looking at your photos first thing in the morning is really inspiring.
Best wishes
Grace

Delightful photo, Julie. When I see plump little baby-hands like that, I just want to kiss them. Children are only tiny for such a short time.
Wonderful to watch the learning process, though, isn't it? And to contribute to it is sheer pleasure.

Great interpretation Julie. Have a great month. P S I have had lots of technical issues lately but it is a yes to that email pick a date, time, place (Melbourne would be great) and I will try to be there with the Aussie Bloggers.

The joys of grandparenting - helping a child to construct its world. Great idea and beautiful shot.

VP said...

This reminds me the long happy moments spent bulding something with 'Lego' (and destroying it in a moment thereafter).

Lovely interpretation fo the them. Ma has a way of showcasing her favourites.

I notice it is the high tech stuff capturing her interest.

A beautiful image. Says it all. Perfection for theme day - for any day, come to that. I love the angle from which you've taken this shot.
