I had other priorities unfortunately. Just couldn't get a suitable shot in the timescale.

Competitions are getting to the point of why bother i'm afraid. People have just got too much on during the week or are just too apathetic.

Must admit some weeks it is a chore to get a picture thats why i also enter another forum as although it is a weekly topic you can use pictures from your archives if you wish. :yikes:

Always sticky at holiday times. All my holiday pics were a week too early.

OMG, and I was so hoping, one of the others would have to set the next theme, as I am slowly drowning in boxes with kitchen stuff, with the camera not being in use much at all. And a brain that is focusing on wall tiles; there is too much choice!

But, then again, it is nice to get so many votes. Thank you all.

I'll think of something new and post it soon.

Well done Reinardina. A worthy winner that captured the old fashioned side of holidays before I phones, tablets, electronic gadgets and social media.

It was good to see kids without tablets or smart phones!

Always outside when we were kids making our own fun. These days they want for nothing the little darlings.
Good take on the subject Reinardina  :tup:

They want for nothing? They have lost the possibility, of going on 'real' self invented adventures. Like you, we were always playing outside.
These kids at least, seem to have kept that 'old fashioned' childhood alive.
(And thanks for the compliment.)

Not all kids want for nothing and many still do use the outdoors. A lot more would I am sure if parents would stop soaking up the media headlines and assume that every adult out there they may come into contact with is a paedophile. You`d think child sex abuse  didn`t happen until nowadays - but of course Operation Yewtree and other cases show this behaviour has been around a long time. As a youth worker in the 70s I remember experiencing my first cases of abuse involving one of my own workers and his young daughter. Horrific to deal with in those days without support / structures to tackle it but showed what I still hold  to be true now. Most abuse with kids is within the family / people they know well and parents need to lose this irrational fear of letting kids explore the outside world and they`d be off on their bikes / scooters to parks anf the like.
