Toys as Kites

I used Sony Cyber-shot (12.1 megapixels) which has no default macro function. Options are metering mode and focus so I set them to 'spot' and 'center AF' respectively. I assumed they work similar to macro. Ensuring the subject were on the 'squarish' little green stuff in the LCD, it automatically focused on anything targeted to it while blurring the background.

These toys are usually found everywhere-in the yard, living room, and even bathrooms. My nephew, a toddler, is on the verge of terrible 'twos' and gets a hell of satisfaction in throwing stuff in all corners of the house. Toys and building blocks are like kites without nylon strings maneuvered over our heads.

I look at them flying. Sometimes scared to death these might break the television or mirror. But every time I turn my head, furious, and look for the boy; I see his smile, stretched from ear to ear and his eyes sparkling with joys.

Well, I always smile back.
