My son was putting together a new lego set and was trying to work thru the instructions and various pieces. I grabbed a bunch of fun candids while he was doing this. :-)

I hope the range in this is dynamic enough. Probably risky going with a kid shot first, and then presenting it in color. :-) Hoping to cover a double with the light/shadows, AND the red/green. It's either going to be a 4.7 or a 6.4! :-D
