Black and White Wednesday


It's black and white Wednesday at the long road to China. At the beginning of the summer holidays I made my teenage children play cat's cradle whilst I photographed their hands, none of us could remember how to play it properly, it's amazing how quickly you forget those lovely old fashioned games.

  9. This is great Justine, and brought back wonderful memories. I'll have to check with my kids to see if they remember how to do it. I do!!

  21. I remember that part of cat's cradle! I loved playing that - my boys like it, too, but I've forgotten all about it!

    Justine, thank you for all of your encouragement on my blogs - I really appreciate your input! I just became a follower (I am sloooooow to do that because I AM a bit overwhelmed with the number of blogs on my list). I am also going to take your link right on over to my photography blog and put you in my blogroll. Just thought that you should know!

    Love, Katy Noelle

    P.S. Again - I just LOVE that shortbread!!!!!!!!=]

  23. This is so neat...I love just the window light peaking through providing for the picture. Perfect!

  24. It is a wonderful photo.
    The amazing thing about cat's cradle is that kids all over the world do it. If you can do it, then you can "communicate" with children in all sorts of countries, even if you don't know the language. : )
