As long as these days can be, photographing this kind of play is sort of magical. Looking through the lens, focusing on the toys rather than the kids, I find myself in their imagined world. Little voices narrate about needing more coal and bridges needing repair, and I watch the events transpire with these child-god hands maneuvering the vulnerable characters through their troubles. It's no Downton Abbey, but it's entertaining enough. For a while.
