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.

Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs

Let the signs do the talking – playground signage from various countries via flickr photo gallery.

Halifax, Canada – proudly no smoking in playgrounds. Click photo for flickr gallery.

And just for fun to wrap things up, this sign from Ottawa. The sign is situated along a green belt that borders a river. It is not specific to a playground though there is a playground located within the green space.
