    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Waiting for the next photo shoot...

    I hate swotting. I'm being encouraged to study loads and loads of information about 6-Sigma and Lean 6-Sigma for a possible job interview. I wish they'll just let me see their process machineries and let me know how to operate them. Being old, I find it hard to absorb all these stuff right now. Maybe because I don't find them interesting or fun to study compared to photography. Anyway, I decided to take a 30-minute break and made me a cup of coffee. While browsing the CiC posts, I looked at my cabinet and I "saw" my "models" looking at me as if they're saying "Hey, photographer, don't we have some new photo shoot? We're bored to death here." So here's my tribute to them for being bored. Thank you very much for viewing. Hehehe.

    Willie,

    I feel your pain, man... I'm in the same boat... sorta.

    Anyway, I like this shot - a weird twist of candid and posed that mixes well. That clone trooper definitely appears to be giving you a bit of attitude.

    - Bill

    Another shot before I pick up the kids from school. One got tired, the rest got jealous so they decided to pose, too. Hahaha! Thanks for the encouragement, Bill.

    Makes me smile. I can remember using the same excuses to take a break from study. Now I no longer do that. Make the excuses I mean. I take all the breaks I want with no excuses required...

    First thought on seeing that was: "Jiro's Silent Family - a portrait"

    Willie, you have a special talent, and it gives each one of them a voice. Great work, once again.

    BTW: Have your kids ever "borrowed them back", and then held them for ransom?

    Thanks, Mike. You're very generous with your nice comments. Regarding the toys, the legos are my kids'. Mine are the clone trooper and the artists' mannequin. I personally both them for a special purpose - to be my models. Hehehe.

    Love this concept. Little boys & little girls should never stop playing with toys; these little people are part of us. You don't fool me Willie!

    It's comedy, but you can feel the tears behind it.
