Ring Of Power
Visions of Tonka's "Mighty Dump Truck" became reality for my son and his classmates. A school field trip to Ringpower Caterpillar Heavy Equipment Facility and the local Lowe's Home Improvement started the day for my son's preschool with excitement.
After the tour of the construction trucks with over sized tires, the entire class moved on to the home improvement center Lowe's down the street. I was a little wary about curious 4 year old kids wandering the hazardous aisles of a hardware warehouse. Let the scolding in public begin!
The field trip did not end as one big home improvement sales pitch to parents. It concluded with an interactive family project to construct a wooden weapon of mass destruction. That was the only moment my interest peaked because I wanted to build my personal catapult too. Only kids get to have all the fun!
The photos and video was shot entirely with the Canon EOS 1D Mark IV,the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L version 1 and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L.
