we used to climb trees, ride bikes, play backyard cricket, throw rocks at each other (OK, that may not have been a good thing) when we were young



  1. Yes we did do those things, and without supervision. I think that it is that latter phrase that undoes the notion of outdoor pursuits. It appears that children would love to do their own thing but it is difficult for them to do so. The ideal would be the sort of time management that allows everything to be done but, even if hands-off play were possible, adults show that addiction to button-pressing would be prevalent! I like your pov here that makes the picture very descriptive but also allows an interesting composition. It also allows a greater study of hands than is normally the case.

  2. The first thing that occurred to me is that they are actually emailing each other! Sometimes if I am engrossed in my laptop Nora threatens to email me to get me to respond.

    Why the hoody and why the headphones on the chair? A good piece of observation.

  3. the hoody, it is winter here but we don’t always use a heater. My daughter sits on that chair and watches movies on the ipad, headphones so she does not annoy others (me) reading. They are playing some game with characters in the same world, working as a team, they do have a lot of fun. Once they get off these they wrestle each other which gets very noisy but since they are usually panting at the end I know that they are at least doing something physcial.

  4. We used to shoot each other with the small air rifle and straw pellets. We managed to avoid using anything more powerful for that game, fortunately. I also vividly remember a long bike ride with my younger brother when we were perhaps 10 and 11, taking in several local villages and ending prematurely for Dave when he had a puncture and had to hitch a life home with his bike. I rode back and met him later. I wouldn’t be ready to allow such for the girls!

    The picture is really intriguing, and demands to be read rather than giving simple visual gratification. I like that. Your comment adds more. My immediate story was one in which they were not communicating at all, but completely isolated in their own worlds. However, you tell us that they actually traveled to another world together. An interesting illustration of the importance of captions on occasions and the way we all bring our own bias and experience to each image we see.
