That looks fun, Helen Smile. When I was a child, a similar game we used to play was called 'fiddlesticks', I wonder how many of you remember it? Carol

Very well composed, Helen, with the triple 'eye,hand and blocks' making an excellent triangle. A left-hander as well Grin.

A stunning observational study Helen, very cleverly worked and captured from a great point of view. The monochrome certainly enhances the mood and suspense.

Spot-on timing, excellent use of shallow dof, very good toned b&w, no distractions. Who could ask for anything more?
