This week’s photo challenge — Free Spirit — is guest hosted by Strauss Louw.
I chose this as the topic for this week’s photo challenge as it lends itself to so many possibilities for subject matter and composition….click here to view post
Most of us have known free spirits — or maybe we were once free spirits. Somehow, as adults, I feel we don’t let this spirit of freedom “out” anymore, for fear of looking odd or silly. And sometimes, we even say goodbye to this spirit, and we let it leave us.
It is another thing with children though….they seem to all embody this free spirit. Here are photographs of my grandsons, Jun and Gabriel, which I think capture this theme. I hope they keep this spirit of freedom and lightness well into old age.
A stick, sunshine,and sand in between your toes…what else do you need for a happy, free spirit day?
At first, my grandchildren try to outrun the waves, but later, give in to to enjoy the water — even though the water in our part o the Pacific ocean is rather cold.
