Photographing Positive Integers

Five Positive IntegersWhile they are still only fun to her as colored objects and not the mathematical concepts they represent, Nora very much enjoys playing with these foam numbers we bought for a few pennies at the local chinos. The other day I was goofing around with them as she was popping them out of their placemat-sized sheet and handing them to me, and I noticed that they could be interlocked in sequence. It was then that I thought they might make an interesting subject for photography, so I waited until Nora’s interest moved to another toy and went to get my camera.
