That's a very evocative photograph. Very sad, mourning the death of childhood.

What an intriguing photo - like the kind they hand out in a creative writing class and ask you to write about what you think is happening - a short season indeed.

This works. Is this photo yours? If it is, then you are a wizard.

Yes this is my photo. The house was torn down yesterday. The girl in the foreground is one of the most gentle, wise little girls I've ever met, happy to spend time with pets and be a little girl. The boys are in a very big hurry to grow up.

fabulous shot. sets off twenty zillion story lines.
I may end up repeating "fabulous" here so let me use another word for the encore: great shot, bob.

Childhood is way too short!
WE were in such a hurry to grow up.
Silly us ;)

Very true about the short phase of childhood. I enjoyed my childhood so much sometimes, I wish I could revisit it through a time machine if I could find one. :)

Beautifully composed shot. All the more powerful for being in black & white
