A Day in the Life of…Batman?!

This little project started out as homework for a photography club I attend. The assessment was to pick an object, and take photos of it, doing things you would think it would do if it were alive. During this time, I was given (as a gift), a small LEGO (C) set of Batman & Catwoman – you know, the one with the little bike? Anyway. Since I’m a HUGE fan of Batman (as you’ve probably already known), I decided that the topic of my assessment would be Batman.

I had a lot of fun doing this assessment, most probably because I got to play with Lego. I was so excited, I actually went out and bought 4 other, rather large, Lego sets that are part of the promotion DC Comics has right now with Lego (you can tell I’m a geek right?). I was at home anyway and had some spare time. I also got my little brother into it, so he seemed to enjoy it.

I ended up also having a few other characters – Joker, Superman and Wonder Woman to name a few. I had some spare random Lego mini figures lying around the house as you do, so I used those too. As a back-drop, I used a black sheet in some cases, and in others as you can see, I actually have a special cardboard with buildings painted on it – which in fact is Gotham City (it was part of the packaging from the special edition Arkham City PS3 game that came with the limited edition statue – which I own).

I also happen to have a Matchbox car of the Batmobile or the Tumbler, and last but not least, I have a mini Batsignal. It works too – light and all…very cute ;). I tried to picture him doing things that I would do if I were a superhero. I mean seriously, you’d talk to your fellow heroΒ colleagues, maybe ever over a hot cup of coffee, and discuss current cases. You’d also want to exercise your mind at one point to relax or forget the night before, and once you’ve finished crime-fighting, you’d want to know if your theatricals made it to the newspaper.

Below are my final photos – I think you’d have a good laugh with these!
