Friday My Town Shoot Out - Celebrate Life

What a great topic!

I've thought and thought about this but I always come back to children. For me there is no celebration of life that can compare with a child's enjoyment of doing what they do best.

The pleasure they find (and give) when they:









learn new things

live without fear

and never grow up


  1. you are so right, the innocence of children is so awesome and a fabulous reason to Celebrate Life!! your pictures are all so precious and very cool too! (I still use cool alot - showing my age?)

  2. Awesome! I agree - if we all continued to live like children, what a happy, wonderous world it would be! Of course, no work would get done, but we would all be happy! And in great shape! Love the trampoline pics! And the tiny dancers. They look like they are having the BEST time!

  3. Doreen the young now use cool a lot - so you are young too... Pauline I thourghly enjoyed this blog. the children in action are priceless.

  4. I just love all the jump pictures. I had a trampoline growing up, and it was such a celebration! The exercise shot on the floor really made me laugh.

  5. aren't children grand - great photos!

  6. Thanks, everyone for your comments.
    I still use "cool" too Doreen and I've notice that the young do as well, so we are still up with the play.
    Audrey, I think we all need to be reminded from time to time to stay in touch with our inner child.
    Kerri, I love that shot too. Thank heavens the camera was handy!
    Denise, children are grand - and grandchildren are the best! :)

  7. I really liked these shots of kids. I love the "Explore" shot. Also enjoyed reading and looking at the post above. What an idyllic place you live in!

  8. Glad you liked that shot, Kerry. I liked the grubby little fingers pointing to her amazing discovery, and how she's completely oblivious to the fact that she should not be sitting in my pots. And yes, I'm so lucky to live where I do.

  9. Pauline, just great photos! I really enjoyed each one!

  10. What a fabulous shoot. Love these photos. They are filled with life!


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
