My hope in taking this photo, despite trademark issues, is to enhance any future nostalgia my daughter may develop regarding this toy. A couple years ago, a photo of the mid-70's Fisher-Price Little People Castle on eBay flooded with me with warm recollection of my fondness for that item, when it perfectly suited the fluidity of my preschool imagination. If only my parents had taken a photo of that toy at my eye level back when it was my favorite. I suppose the foregoing could also serve as an explanation for my often mundane choices for subjects in my photos. Stated otherwise, I often gravitate toward odd subjects out of past or current emotional investment in the items depicted.
