Toys are less likely to be the subject of a travel site, but to me, traveling is not only about seeing landscapes and architecture…
I’m always carrying the camera with me wherever I go and as an avid documentary type of photographer, I’m curious and like to observe things that others may not even notice… I try to take photos that tell stories, so I can impress my friends and family with what I’ve seen during my absence from home 🙂
Here for example is a little boy crying because something went wrong with his small toy car… He was wiping his tear and looked so sad – Ohhh… He was a Guatemalan kid in Panajachel, on Lake Atitlán, Guatemala – oh, yeah… that’s a great place to visit!
The kid made me immediately think about the saying: “The difference between a man and a boy is the cost of their toys” Ha, ha… 🙂
… but as I said, toy-cars are not only for kids… Look at this pedal boat on Lake Constance, in Friedrichshafen, Germany
They were really having fun with it 🙂
Now, talking about Germans, they seriously like toys… It’s almost impossible to enter a house that doesn’t have at least one teddy-bear displayed someplace 🙂
Here we were in a guesthouse in Kressbronn, a small town near Friedrichshafen, and they were having hundreds of bears in all the rooms, hallways even in the kitchen… it was like a bear house:)
But things are not always happy with toys… they get old and undesirable too.
This poor Eeyore – a stuffed donkey, was simply discarded on a street in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada – Oh, he broke my heart 🙁

Word of the Day: Tear
Tuesday photo challenge: Toys
Such great photos, it is impossible to pick a favourite toy, they all look so special, from toy car to pedal boat!
Wow, thank you so much Irene! My fav of the post is actually the Guatemalan kid ?
I am afraid the donkey would have come home with me to join all my other soft toys in my art studio! I still have the teddy I was given when I was born, he is like a best friend. I love the pedal boat!
Thank you so much Dorothy 🙂
