“Strolling”

3 Comments

Bottle Boy and Girl Friend out for an afternoon stroll, Date unrecalled.

I was out by the sea one afternoon some time ago, and I saw this pair playing among the mangrove saplings. They were the only two kids there, so I followed them around, trying to see what they would do, while taking pictures of the area.

He held a bottle of beer, the contents of which we joked were probably milk or some other child’s beverage.We couldn’t help but chuckle because the brand of beer he had with him was a popular one, known to have a good “Kick”. Children in action always fascinate me, and this picture was just one of the many that I have taken of children in action over the years. 

These two could be siblings, or playmates, and  they look roughly the same age. Playtime at the beach edge was probably a daily activity for these kids. These two probably don’t get to play with their gadgets and devices all that often, but instead go out and have their own kind of outdoor fun. He, barefoot and cheeky, was looking at something on her back (or at her in fascination/amusement), while she, was nonchalantly walking. 

I, for one, would like to know what both of them were really thinking, and that would have made for a nice little story about kids. In the meantime, this is a photo of a simple life, on a simple beach, one beautiful afternoon. πŸ™‚

  1. I’ve browsed your site a few times and this post always catches my eye. I don’t know – I think I just love the imagery and the story, the innocence. You have a very good eye and a beautiful perspective. Needless to say, I’m nominating you for the Sunshine Blogger Award! πŸ™‚

      • The little moments in life are what make the darker times not quite so bad. πŸ™‚ Not only did I nominate you, I sent a link to your blog to my daughter…she’s an artist very intrigued by photography. The first thing she asked when she saw you’re blog was…”Can I nominate her for the award?” I thought I’d share that with you! πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful day!
