“Game On” (Hopscotch Court, Kimball-Haskell Park) Playground Series (#9), Nikon D300, 95mm, F/5.6, 1/1250s, ISO 200, ‘Old West’ Toning Action

Continuing on with the Playground Series, we come to image #9. 

When I was a kid, I loved playing hopscotch with my sister Lynn and our friend, Charlene, who lived a few houses down. We’d draw the court out onto the driveway with chalk and hunt around for stones to use as markers. It was the perfect game to play when mom sent us outside in that hour before dinner. 

Children visiting this playground are lucky enough to have a permanent court! Now granted, they might have to negotiate for court time when the bigger kids want to shoot hoops (all in the same area), but isn’t that simply part of the ‘learning to get along’ process? 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!🙂
