Kids at Play – flickr Photo Gallery

If you haven’t already noticed, I’m infatuated with flickr. There are just so many great photographers posting striking photos for the world to see. I visit on a regular basis to see how people are capturing and documenting play.

Kids at Play will be an occasional PlayGroundology feature of images from around the world presented in flickr photo galleries. My thanks to Tammy Maitland whose photo of kids at play in Ahmedabad, India (below) is the inspiration for this gallery series.

This particular photo makes me think of a book I enjoyed more than 20 years ago, Italo Calvino’s The Baron in the Trees. The young baron would have loved this set up.

Check the gallery and be prepared to smile at photos from Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, North and South America. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Many thanks to the photographers.

    • I love the blog hop idea and you’ve got great participation. I’m glad I was able to offer something. Let’s connect at some point. I’m sure there’s a lot I could learn from your blogging experience and hopefully something I could pass along from my side too. Browse through the blog if you can make some time, I like to think there’s some worthwhile content.

    • I thought that Linky idea was great. I’m glad to have come across it. Glad you like the photos – incredible material out there on flickr. Can you send me the link to your Pinterest? I’m always on the lookout for good images. Check out my ABCs4Play. You might enjoy that – 26 days, one letter per day with words submitted by about 70 people over the course of the play. Thanks for your comments. Cheers
