Weekly Photo Challenge – Childhood

I don’t, as a rule, take photographs of children….but here are a couple of old images

Exuberance in Cuba, over a decade ago:

Kids at play, Cuba

Innocence, in an English garden:

Connecting in play

  1. I always avoid getting children into a photo. The modern world has made photographing children a real minefield. Love the second shot, with its timeless quality. Could have been taken in my youth.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. The black and white one is very nostalgic of an English summer, though I’d square it up and chop out those distracting leaves.

  3. Love them both – and I love photographing children, but yes, a minefield in the western world.

  4. The English children are sweet. The photo has the sense of a by-gone era.

  5. You captured it well, the bliss of being young, Sue!

  6. Cute and the B&W works well.

  7. And when you do, you epitomise childhood.

  8. Love the expression on the young boys face

  9. more than the sum of the parts -the contrast between the two makes each more charming

  10. Little fairies in the field!

  11. I love the black and white photo. It’s beautiful.
