03-13-10 Child’s Play

The most strking thing about this photo to me is that if I didn’t tell you where it was taken, you wouldn’t know. These children could be from almost any cosmopolitan city (that had massive bronze public sculptures). The other thing that strikes me is the nature of the play. Is it cooperative? Is it work? Does it have a purpose? And what are they thinking?

Finally, because I tend to see analogies wherever I look, tell me that my photo doesn’t in some way seem reminiscent of one of the more famous photos of all time (click).

Where was it taken? The city of Delft in the Netherlands.
