Makes me wonder who that hand belongs to. With so many missing children in the world. You just got to hope that these children will go back to that house. In reality that's probably dad's hand. But the image does make you think. Great image....Sandy

Not sure of the title. They still look like children and doing childish things. But a good image of children in their environment.

Thank you for visiting, and your comments!
I was busy talking to these children across the fence, when their (rather inebriated) mother ran over from somewhere else, and shouted something at her kids - implying that no one takes photos of her kids etc. She was rather abusive, however, I have a strong feeling that it was not simply achohol intoxication.
The kids retreated in fear, and that was when I took this frame. Hence the title.
This was my 1st time since doing this type of work that I have encountered hostility. Ego busted, but at least I have a memory of this unfortunate episode.
