Did you have your favourite marker warming your pocket? Did you Hopscotch? Great selfie here, Carin! D. found a box of sidewalk chalk while cleaning the garage. Guess what we’ll do next visit …
LOVED hopscotch. Don’t lose that chalk! (;
(p.s. favourite ‘marker’ was a bit of chain; an inch or two of the kind that attached to a bathroom plug was ideal; no bouncing, good for accuracy)
How imaginative! I don’t think we ever used anything but pebbles.
Excellent. You use a pebble. I’ll use chain. Let’s play for lunch. (;
Really love the contrast between dark and light and organic and straight shapes. Well done.
What a great observation. Thank you!
Ah, The Shadow Plays Hopscotch! Terrific story here. Do you have Movie rights? (Love this picture, the contrast of shapes, the whimsy, everything.)
I used to love playing hopscotch. But we drew ours with chalk and they had 10 spaces. Another pair, another single, and then a circle at the top into which one jumped and turned around (all on one foot) and leaned down to pick up one’s ‘throwing thingie’ (still on one foot) only to start all over again. Geez, even just talking about it has me all jazzed for a game…
This is obviously something to put on the agenda for when we finally meet in person.
Lovely! This and jacks makes for a perfect morning…
I like the way the B&W emphasizes the lines and the shadow looming over the squares. I can’t decide if it has a melancholy feel, like the adult shadow is remembering wistfully, or a playful feel, like she is about to jump into an imaginary game. Either way the composition is dynamic, the shadow falling over the squares at that angle. As so many of your photos, it looks deceptively simple — but it offers much to think about.
I considered making it B&W, but I kind of like the ‘real’ tones of the pavement. Makes it so much easier to imagine skinning a knee. (As for the photographer… nothing wistful happening here; I do believe I did some hopping after the shot.) (;
