Mowgli...

Today a new chapter of my life begins; we shall call it “The Lego”. High hopes for a celebratory beginning is dashed when I end up with “Gorilla suit Guy” as my first ever Lego. Not the prettiest one though rather ironic cause I’m called Mowgli by my best friend for my hyper monkey (read: parkour) behavior. If you didn’t know, Mowgli is a human child character that first made its appearance in Rudyard Kipling’s short story “In the Rukh” but made famous by Disney’s animated film “The jungle book”.

Oh and to add more to it, I’m also called “Bandar” by a few other friends which in monkey in Hindi. So seeing that it just makes perfect sense; this Lego minifigure shall be called Mowgli. Time to hand him over to my niece to fiddle with before she gets her hands on the real Lego toy…. ^_^

    I wish you good luck with your 'lego' project. I'll be interested to see how it progresses.

    Personally, I don't think the little plastic fellows offer much room for nuanced expression but i'm ready for you to prove me wrong.

    A possible Lego collection has nothing to do with my photography. My want to own Lego toys precedes my photography ambitions by several years. Lego is a child's dream while photography is a an adults dream though ill be continuously tempted to do something along these lines (http://legomyphoto.wordpress.com/) though not anytime soon...

    Ah, I misunderstood your intentions. I thought you were beginning a lego photography project (i.e photographing posed lego figurines, landscapes etc.)

    Either way your choices are your choices and you can do with them what you wish, you don't need my consent nor anyone else's.

    I used to love playing with lego when I was younger. I had a box of the standard stuff, a star wars pack and a special mining facility. I loved playing plastic god.

    The urge to have a collection was fueled further by a possible photography project so it is kinda my intentions though quite unsure about it right now. It'll need one of those impulsive compulsive actions to get me started.

    The Star wars series is on my wishlist but the prices over here are exuberant to say the least... :(
