Here's one from the archives. I had been taking shots at a nature area and had packed all my stuff away on my bicycle. Half-way across the Sturgeon Creek Bridge, I spotted these youngsters heading towards me. By the time I got my gear out, there was only time for this one shot.

Comments are always appreciated.

I like the fact the they are not completley in the picture. It gives more of a feel that they really don't have time to wait for you to take their picture. Modern day version of the movie "Stand By Me"?

Funny... that's kind of what I was thinking.

Thanks for the comments.

Nice capture Tom - their collective expressions are wonderful - makes them a motley crew and you canmost see the different personalities in them (who's the "leader", etc) :-)

I think you're quite talented to make something interesting out of more "everyday" things and events". Why, I'll bet you even have a super shot of the Leamington tomatoe squirreled away somewhere.

Suze, you surprise me. However would you know about humble Leamington? I'll keep my tomato shots for a while, but I may be able to dig out some wildlife shots from the botanical gardens in Royal Leamington Spa. (Old film stuff in boxes somewhere)

Tom, I have friends who used to live in Windsor and London so have visited there a few times. Visits would always include a drive to Leamington, and stops at some of the roadside fruit & veg stands. Best corn on the cob I've ever had.:-)

The world is indeed a very small place.
