Emerald Green Sunday & Monochrome Monday

I wanted to take some pictures of the lake but all of this grass caught my attention. I snapped about 5 pictures in 2 minutes and got back in the car because it was starting to rain. I am really pleased with them and think they are a wonderful contribution for Emerald Sunday. Hope you like them too.

Here is a photo of my children tossing pebbles into a drain. What you don't do this? I am not sure how long they would do this if I didn't call them away. Usually after 3 minutes I am done but I would be interested to see how long they would last without the me moving them along.

nice shots.

My guess: a long time. Whenever I watch my kids play, I'm amazed at how they can focus on task for what seems like an eternity if they're really interested in it.

When I was a kid, this could have taken up my entire day!

Your photography is magnificent, slices of life caught in an instant.

Love this shot! Takes me back to when my girls were little. :D

Aileni said...

Such concentration.

Petrus said...

Dropping pebbles into a drain was also a favourite pastime - listening to the water splash ! Now I'm a Blogger ..

Tall grasses look wonderful when they blow in the wind! Quikte magical!

And love the shot of the two children so intent on a game! Even the drain adds interesting texture to the monochrome!

Dragonstar said...

Dropping pebbles into drains can last as long as the supply of pebbles! That's a lovely photo.

I love their concentration on the task! Neat focus, for both you and them.

I like this shot very much. I don't do people as a rule but this one of your children is so involved for such a simple shot. Thanks for posting.....Love it......

Daryl said...

Nice .. and I suspect they'd stay there til either there were no more pebbles or they got into a fight over whose turn it was ...

Very sweet portrait.

Catherine said...

Every parent understands what you mean with that B&W picture. I recognize also my own children in this shot. I love it, so simple and essential.

Jonna said...

I bet they would stay there for a good 30 minutes or so before suddenly running off! LOvely photo.

Liz said...

A long time I should think. Endless fun to be had.

Leslie, Awww..that is sweet. Thanks for visiting.

Aileni, Right?! I know it. It took me at least 5 calls of their names to get their attention.

Petrus, Awww..thanks for stopping by. I guess I must have done this but I don't remember. My husband says he used to love doing this.

Greyscale, Thanks so much for coming by. Your artist views is always very interesting to me.

Dragonstar, Thanks so much. I always appreciate your comments.

MeAnn, They seem to be able to concentrate on the things I don't want them to do but when I need them to concentrate....

Daryl, I think you are probably right! Thanks for coming by.

Babooshka, Aww...that is so nice. Thanks for the kind words.

Catherine, Thank you for coming by. Kids help us really see the world. I love being a mom.

Jonna, You are probably right. They were totally loving this and working together nicely.

Liz, Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

The simplest things are the best for children! I bet they would stay there for hours if you let them to! :o)
