Boy Blue

On a hot day in Dubai (in November!) the only thing to do is to jump in the swimming pool and cool off.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Peek

Another dip into the archives for the Weekly Photo Challenge this time, as I’m still away from home and therefore from full access to my image library.

Here, my grandson takes a peek around the patio door of our apartment in Abu Dhabi. He – and his twin brother – are rather bigger now.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Water

Following last week’s theme of ‘Blue’, Frank has set a double challenge for this week with the subject of ‘Water’. Most people will have plenty of photos featuring water, of course, but in how many of those images is the water blue? And haven’t we just done that?

There is certainly an element of blue in this image, but at least it’s not in the water (and there’s plenty of that). This was taken a few years ago at the Corniche Water Park in Abu Dhabi and shows one of my twin grandsons being fascinated by the jets coming from one of the water cannons.

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 17 – Laughter

‘Laughter’ is the theme for this week’s challenge hosted by The Girl That Dreams Awake.

A game of peek-a-boo is guaranteed to produce laughter in a two year old. This photograph of one of my grandsons comes with free reflection.



52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 13 – Face

Hard to believe that we’re now a quarter of the way through the 52 Weeks Photo Challenge (I think you’ll find that last week’s ‘Street’ was – correctly – tagged as Week 12) hosted by The Girl That Dreams Awake.

This week’s subject is ‘Face’, and who doesn’t have lots of images to choose from to respond to that?

Taken a few years ago, this is one of my grandsons sufficiently intrigued by the camera pointing at him to pause briefly from splashing around in his Pirate Boat paddling pool to stare right down the lens, just like a pro.

Yesss! Got the car keys! Let the fun begin.

Playing in cars

What tw0 year-old wouldn’t enjoy playing in a proper grown-up car? Under supervision, of course.
