Head em' off at the pass! by 

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/8s, f/3.5, ISO 1600, focal length 4.5mm

My husband has had these figures, one cowboy and one Indian, since 1952 when he was a young teen and playing cowboys and Indians was very popular. They are among his favorite things.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    You managed to create a great image with this Indian figures Dot, nice work with the background.

  • Thanks very much, Rosie. I set them on the piano and the artificial tree in the background made it look like they were hiding in foliage! There, my secret revealed! lol

    How great to still have them! And guess what my husband kept a big box full of from his childhood until fairly recently? Yep, cowboy and Indian figures like these, although most weren’t painted. Neat capture, Dot!

  • Some people are so sentimental about their childhood toys. I must admit I have never been, but every once in a while I wish I still had some of my school term papers! Silly, isn’t it? I worked hard on them….(you will appreciate the fact that one of them was “Puns in Shakespeare”). LOL My hubby will never part with anything. Thanks, Sis!

    I love this Dot,,,I can remember as a little boy having Cowboy & Indian items like this to play with. You took a great photo of them!


  • Glad to bring back memories for you, Rick. Those were the days when such toys (and toy guns) were not politically incorrect. Today the kids move their thumbs around on electronic toys instead.
