Thank you all for your more than kind comments, clicks and awards. I will message as well.

I converted it to B/W but kept it softly toned, just seemed in keeping with the little lad playing. The colour version is almost too busy. Lots of competing green foliage colour and brackish coloured water and shadows and light bouncing around, all lost the focus from the child.

Glad you like it, children will need to learn to feel free to be children again after Covid.

Take care.

There's so much to see in this, Kath.

Dreams of very long ago, and of not so long ago. And maybe of the future, as well.

Thank you so much both Edwin and John for your thoughtful comments. Think we have to always live in the now and look to the future.

Both stay well.

My granddaughters love playing like this in streams and rivers, fortunately here they have been able to do so. A lovely picture, Kath.

Thank you, Kath. Glad you Liked link. Canadian backwoods is nothing for even adults to fool with so how Jude (a 3 year) managed to stay alive and relatively well we will likely never know. Kids make their own entertainment with anything that is at hand and other than keeping them safe, we should let them explore.

Thank you so much James and Dora. Little Jude is a mini miracle and like you know, I bet he won't recall everything that happened. Childhood is precious and unfortunately we can't wrap our children in cotton wool.
