Board Games

I have to say that I’m not a great fan of board (bored?) games: probably something to do with the sinking of my boredom threshold as I get older. Nonetheless, we have a decent selection in a cupboard.

For the young people, you understand.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Play

I couldn’t help but be struck by the vibrant colours of this slide in a childrens’ playground in Abu Dhabi.

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 18 – Freedom

This week’s theme of ‘Freedom’ is encapsulated, I think, in this image of my grandson on a zipline in the play area of the Beecraigs Country Park just outside Linlithgow in Scotland. He was happy to be doing it and I was happy that my attempt at a panning shot, blurring the background (a little), kind of worked.

Playing in cars

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

This week’s theme is ‘Games’, so here is a photograph taken last summer of my twin grandsons playing basketball in our swimming pool.
