I realised that I took these photographs last week and have yet to share them with you, save for a couple on the Bumbles & Light facebook page. Mikey loves that we live half a block away from the el train and honestly it’s the starting point for most of our little adventures. We began at the station nearest to us and followed the tracks for a few blocks as they wound around some of the nearby buildings. I didn’t think to bring my wide angle lens, so you can’t really see how awesome the tracks look from underneath in these photographs, save for the rusty pillars that hold them up.
As well as watching the trains (and covering his ears because he says they are too loud) we investigated among the weeds for little bugs and flowers. Such is urban life, you take your nature where you can get it. But I really love these photos, not least because we had to bring his toy elephant, Baby Elly, with us (and Mikey tells me that Baby Elly enjoyed herself just as much as he did) but the light was soft and the photographs capture Mikey exploring… which is what he does best.
