I was witnessing the children playing in the schoolyard, learning how to play cricket. Have you discovered the ball?
My grand son is going now to this school which is famous because the Bee Gees have been studying there in the 1950s.
Barry, the only one Bee Gees brother still remaining in life, has visited it a few days ago. See the report hereunder
By the way, my daughter has lived in a house in Keppel road, just in front of their, but not at the same time!
I guess that my grand son will be a rock star!!!

Hello Claude - Not the sharpest of shots be still a delight to see; the colours make, what to me is quite a boring game to watch, a far more attractive proposition! The young lady looks as bad as I would if I had to have a go! Looks like an nicely integrated school. A word of advice.... sign up as your grandson's manager without delay! Warm regards Rosemary

L'image est un peu floue mais les couleurs éclatent de partout et l'abeille rose est de circonstance!

a cheerful photo with bright colors, probably cropped from a much larger version. it is funny that no one is interested in the ball up there :) they might be asking more money in the future for the bee gees reason :))

I like the bright thumbnail of this one. It is a happy image and it is good to see children at play.I like the way you have managed to catch the bright ball against the brick of the building. I also the expression of concentration on the childrens' faces.
ps I remember a woman I worked with in Manchester telling me she had known the Bee Gees as boys.

I know you, and I bet you noticed this scene and just couldn't resist could you!
the colors really pop, and even though the children don't exactly look too thrilled, it still makes for an interesting photograph.
I should join these kids because like most North American's i have NO IDEA how cricket is played.
