52x2/2013, everyday life


This week’s life photography theme was pretend.

Here’s the setup…
I am playing with the kids at my parent’s home. Hide and Seek. Marcus runs and hides in another room. I walk in to the room he’s hiding, look around and announce. “Hey, I can’t find Marcus, I wonder where he could be?” He lets out a giggle, and responds, “Shhh. I in the box.”

Here’s the photo…
31/52/Life - "Shhh. I in the box."

While we are on the topic of pretending, I’d like to show you the runner up for this week. I know it’s something I don’t usually do, but I couldn’t help it.
Feigning fear from the fearless.
I titled this one: Feigning fear from the fearless.
. This girl is so brave, and yet she acts so well. She was determined to cross the monkey bars today, screaming in half joy/half scared out of her mind all the way. Speaking of which… since Marcus saw her finally go for it; he couldn’t help but get in on the act.

31/52/Portrait - "I'm doing it!"
He’s as strong as Molly is fearless. He didn’t make it across, but he hung on for a good while. I’m sure every time we visit the park, this is the first thing he’ll head to now. Quite determined; that boy is, indeed.
