Kiddie Walkway


This is the walk way that leads to the entrance of the Children's museum. I like the strip with the kids holding hands. It reminded me of the children's game Red Rover.

That's very sweet and I love how you composed this with the shadow!

Teresa said...

At first , I didn't see the kids holding hands until I enlarged picture.

What a novel idea.

Gosh that's like an optical illusion that strip Randy, it was only when you mentioned 'the strip of children holding hands that I could see it, wonder if anyone else found that!

Beautiful tiles, I like the texture and the detail of the shadow is awesome!
Clever capture!

Not heard of Red Rover but I like the abstract feel to this photo.

I hadn't thought of Red Rover in about 50 years. Amazing how kids' games have changed!

Nice one!

Madge Bloom said...

I like that too... looks like they have bricks with names paving the way - was it a fundraiser?

Honest Abe said...

We bought bricks with our names on them and they were laid at the entrance or walkway to the children's park in our city park. And then also at the VFW memorial.

After I was hacked I had to give up my old user name and the blogs that went with it. My Birds Blog was among the give-ups.

So this is the new birds blog and I hope you can come visit. Birds Birds Birds and Birds

How neat and it does remind me of that game.

Kate said...

It's a wonderful way to honor childhood with the figures joining hands. The bricks look like they're all dedicated to children...right?

That is a fun and clever idea!

That's a great composition of this unique welcome to children Randy.

RedPat said...

I love this - much more fun than the wall in yesterday's pic. ;-)

Lowell said...

I think I lost a comment. But I said that this is a creative walkway and a creative photo and I, also, like the way the shadow falls across the picture.

EG CameraGirl said...

Ah, yes! Wonderful!

NixBlog said...

Great shot, Randy!

Rizalenio said...

Love the details esp the shadow. :)

Regina K said...

Nice, Red Rover, Red Rover...

Magpie said...

Oh, I was never very good a Red Rover. What a fun memory!

Alan said...

Well spotted, Randy. Nice job with the shadow thrown in for good measure.

Lynette said...

Striking image, Randy. I also like the strip where they are holding hands. It reminded me of cutting a strip of connected paper children from a folded newspaper, back when I was young. I have absolutely no memory of how I did it.

By the way, did you get to take a look at my first ever iMovie? There's a link to it on my Sunday post. It's all about the blowing wind outside the Rose Garden before my games began.
