Living Arrows 20/52

I am always amazed by how easily I forget to see magic in the world around us and am eternally grateful that my two girls are around to remind me.

We took them out on their bikes after school and happened upon an old folly on the clifftop.

Something that is just there, that I would climb in and out of as a child, but means little more than that these days.

Yet for my two, just climbing into it filled them with wonder and once inside, they ran and danced and skipped around the weed-covered ruins, laughing and singing as they went.

    Love how you’ve captured their imaginative play. You can almost imagine what they are thinking as they explore.

    Oh, just beautiful! We need to step back and see things through a child’s eye sometimes don’t we?

    What wonderful pictures, I think as adults we don’t do enough jumping, climbing and exploring.
    We really should follow our childrens lead.

  8. What absolutely stunning pictures, I always think the ones where they don’t notice your taking pictures are the best. No false smiles just everything in it’s natural beauty. It looks like so much fun and the perfect after school activity #livingarrows

  9. Stunning photos, reminds me of The Secret Garden for some reason, they have a real dreamy and whimsical feel to them. You’re totally right about our children teaching us to stop and smell the roses once in a while! xxx #livingarrows
