The challenge for this week is all about motion… This series of photos were taken during a holiday in France a few years ago. They feature my youngest son in various stages of running and jumping into the pool. My daughter can also be spied (already in the pool) in various stages of gleeful disbelief…the water was sooo cold and she couldn’t believe he was going to launch himself, full pelt into it’s icey depths instead of gingerly easing himself in like she (and I) would! Eldest son on the lounger in the background…clearly too laid back to care either way!
And we’re off!

Lift off! Brother and sister make eye contact…I can’t believe you’re actually doing this!
…I can’t look! (and I don’t want to get splashed!)
Look at the motion of the hair! 🙂

This weeks photo challenge is all about ‘street life’… the only recent street life photos I’ve taken were all in or around Brick Lane and I think I’ve posted enough of those for now! So I decided to use some from a holiday in France back in 2011!
Hope you enjoy them…
A couple of buskers… love that sax sound!
This local was sharpening knives at his stall and the guy next to him was selling all manner of knives… possibly a father and son team?!
Two more buskers… my son loved listening to the guitarists we heard around the market!
Pigeon street life!
The under cover part of the market
This cute little guy was sitting on a display stand watching the street life go by while his owner went about his business!
This flute busker looks like he’s come straight from Narnia!
A quieter side of street life!
Two ladies take time out to relax and have a catch up!
Street life signs!
No choice but to relax and follow behind slowly!
