Tag Your It!

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” by Don McCullin

 

Today I watched these two little squirrels chasing each other up, down and around this tree.  They were fun to watch and photograph.  It made me remember times when my bothers and I would play “tag your it”, “Mother May I” or kickball in this same backyard many years ago.  It brought back fun times.

Holdin’ Them Bones

One of the things that we all like to do on vacation is to play Dominoes.  Now this is one game that I am not very good at.

I like how each person has their own way of holding the Dominoes.  How do you hold yours or do you line them up on the table?

Strategy

“One man’s trash is another’s treasure.” This is such a true statement.  My daughter Essence, saw someone throwing away this bunching bag and thought that the kids would have a ball with it. So she asked if she could have it and of course they said yes.

This was a hit with the kids.  They were checking out the numbers and planning their strategy on how to knock it down.

WP PHOTO CHALLENGE: OOPS

I attempted to capture Arai and Camren playing hide-n-seek at their great-grandmother’s house early last spring.

Unfortunately I failed to set the camera for action shots. The pictures turned out to be “oops” pictures.

Up for a Game of H.O.R.S.E.?

Figured that I would step away from all the vacation pictures for now and capture something different.

My employer provides a lot of extra things for its employees to use to unwind after a mentally stressful day.  We have access to pool tables, foosball, gym, walking trails, tennis and basketball courts.  At any given time you can usually find people busy doing something to take their mind off the stress of the day.

For the past few days I have driven past the basketball courts and saw 2 balls that have been left.  Today I decided to pull out the cell phone and capture a few shots.

This brought back memories of being a child playing HORSE with my brothers and the other boys on the street.  I was pretty good!  I felt like I was the only girl on the street since the other 2 girls were much older and rarely played or even came outside.  So if I wanted to play I had to play with the boys.  I was am a true Tomboy.

What was one of your favorite games to play as a child?

Photo Challenge – Relic(1)

This weeks Photo Challenge is Relic.

This is a stone chess set that was given to my brother a few years ago.  I tried to find out some information on it but did not have much luck.  Some sites say it was made around 1910’ish and others say 1970’ish.
