Street Life: Children Sparring at Lions Fountain



There was so much color, festivity and livelihood at the Lions Square in Heraklion on the Island of Crete, Greece.  I loved watching the two boys play in the street as though there were no one else around to see them. They sparred and danced around the square for over 15 minutes. I’m sure big brother was letting the younger excel at the game as it continued on and on.  Take a look off to the left, sitting on the edge of the Lions Fountain is a young street entertainer playing the accordion while another on looker further up is a woman carrying the large bundle of colorful balloons for sale.  Inexpensive and colorful entertainment was in abundance.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

      Thanks, Liz. I had fun watching them and photographing them. They were oblivious of everything around them as with most children having fun.

    I see it – the accordion player!Thanks for pointing that out 🙂 Great shot – I love the movement in the feet. Definitely adds “life” to the photo.

      Hi… thanks for your thoughts on this picture. I really enjoyed watching these young boys at play in the square. I’ve several shots of them and there was action in each but this was the best to me. I think the older brother was letting the younger get the best of him. 😀


I'm looking forward to hearing from you..
