She had a small plastic bottle filled with water he has a paper plane - they were as happy as Larry.
Endless hours of fun with simple toys - reminded me of my own children in India, my daughter could play for hours with fragments of coloured bricks and stones grinding up powder to make make believe food or paint or whatever the game maybe.

This is lovely. Really good skin tones, composition and expression on the kids' faces.
Great title too. Well done.

Hello dear Elaine, what a beautiful composition, and not staged, they just were surely sitting in that marvellous posture--what a wonderful capture! Yes, I also recall some toys that me and my brother were playing with endlessly in the bathtub, with old shampoo containers as Foxy Maxy and the like... incredible fun... not much needed to fill the air with joy! These children remind me of those moments of carefree joy, a wonderful take...
You have raised your children in India?
Good night from Ottawa!

Good morning, Elaine,
Nice shot of those playing children - they don't need much to have fun, do they!! I like the way they are sitting together - and their different expressions - she looks so eager and he looks a bit lazy....and funny detail with the boys sandals :) The stairs as background looks good.

This shot is high on cute factor. It has been well captured. The image is nice and sharp. Nice work.

This is really beautiful Elaine - the way they tesselate together and the little girl's expression especially - such determination! They look like they could be a cheeky handful - a great image - definitely one for the new version of "The World of Children".
best wishes Kev
