Attention Thematic Photographic folks: This picture is the last in our kids theme first posted last Wednesday. If you'd like to share a kid-themed photo, please click here to dive in (and, yes, if you're here for Wordless Wednesday, you're absolutely welcome to join in the Thematic insanity.) If you're curious about the new theme, coming Wednesday night, please scroll to the bottom of this message.The sun was fading behind the treeline as I gathered up the kids from the neighborhood playground and we began the short walk home. They slowly dragged themselves away from the swings and the climbers and chattered amongst themselves as we made our way out of the park.
A group of older kids - tweens or early teens, maybe - had arrived and one of them seemed to be attempting to break free of gravity. I could hear the rusty chains protesting the abuse as the group faded into the distance. I wheeled around and grabbed this last silhouetted image before we continued on our way.
Your turn: Our next Thematic Photographic theme is grounded. If it has anything remotely to do with the ground, we want to see it. Considering it's something we stand or sit on pretty much constantly, I'm sure you'll all once again come up with some neat interpretations of the theme. Entry will be posted at 7:00 p.m. ET sharp Wednesday. I invite you to come back then and share a photo or link. In the meantime, we're still accepting submissions for last week's kids theme.
