Errol and I spent many, many weekends in Baja California, Mexico. On one of our trips, we came upon some Americans, including these two boys.
I've always loved the picture, it represents what boyhood is and should be all about, I think.
So true Inger ... when children can play with no worries ... gorgeous photo too. Stay safe and content ... cheers Hilary
I loved wading in any water when I was a child, as long as it was not deep as in over my head. this does indeed remind me of childhood..
I remember playing in the streams as a child, I guess I could have been a tomboy. Love the photo! Have a happy day!
Love the picture and the simple joys of childhood. No electronics needed.
That's a lovely scene. A couple of years ago I saw several little kids wading at the Preserve in a shallow pond catching frogs, with a naturalist. Yells of joy, everybody wet and muddy and happy on a hot day, lovely.
Fun! Almost looks like they were trying to catch something!
No worries at all, how childhood should be. Looking back, mine had no worries, my parents sheltered me from any financial hardship they had, and with great neighbours and a friend just across the metal road, also on a farm, we were all happy and content, no fancy technical gadgets or phones, no laptops, NO fancy clothes, an old bike with no gears, or a horse to get to school, those wee lads seems content and happy in a way we have forgotten existed many years ago.
It reminds me of my youth. We spent so much time wading in the brook and we would catch little trouts for our supper. It gave us a sense of self worth. I wish all kids would be as carefree as we were. I feel very sad for today's youth.Hugs, Julia
Nature's children, having fun in the water, trying perhaps with their limited means, to catch some fish.
It is a good photo, and symbolic as well.
You are so right!
It's a great photo, Inger. I love seeing children at play, seemingly carefree. Times like that are fleeting!
They're having fun and that's the way it should be.Love,Janie
It is a great photo. Kids being kids, as it should be.
sweet photo for sure.
