Only one photo from me today, The Spouse teaching our Grandson Isaac how to swing himself. I don’t know who was having the most fun, Jeff or Isaac. I do know that I love this image.

The Blurb

I take a lot of photos and most of them are just sitting around in folders on my desktop not doing anything. I thought that a dedicated post once a week would be a good way to share some of these photos that otherwise wouldn’t be seen by anyone other than me.

I am also remarkably absent minded and I put photos into folders and think that I will publish them later on and then then I never do.

So I have started a photo meme that anyone can join in and play as well. The rules are so simple as to be virtually non existent.

Just add your name and URL to the Mr Linky.

Publish your photos on your blog using the “Sunday Selections” title.

Link back here to me.

That is an absolutely BRILLLIANT image. The joy on both faces made me smile loudly. Thank you.

My pleasure :)

Great shot. Small and big, so adorable!

frogpondsrock June 10, 2012 at 12:13 pm

They are both pretty cute

Sue June 10, 2012 at 10:17 am

That is just gorgeous! :)

Your Sunday Selections posts have made me realise how few photos I’ve been taking recently. Must remedy that.

frogpondsrock June 10, 2012 at 12:14 pm

Yes, Sue, grab that camera and go for a walk. :) (I should actaully follow my own advice as I desperately need to start walking again)

Sue June 10, 2012 at 3:13 pm

I should, it’s so fun walking with the camera, ain’t it!

I need to walk more than I am at the moment. It’s far more fun sitting on my spreading arse, eating roast vegetables :P

Love this pic, Kim, it’s fabulous!

frogpondsrock June 10, 2012 at 6:04 pm

I love this photo!
Grandpas and little kids and special moments…

I need to get out walking more too, maybe after the movie…..

frogpondsrock June 10, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Tomorrow morning I am going to start walking again.

Toushka Lee June 10, 2012 at 3:39 pm

love love LOVE this photo. There is something about grandparents and grandkids. special.

frogpondsrock June 10, 2012 at 6:07 pm

It is the patience factor Toushka as well as the fact that we can give them back. We had planned to take Isaac out with us, so we weren’t in a rush to get home and do the myriad things that need to be done when your own kids are this small. Once your own children have shown you what teenagerdom is like, small children are a breeze. A total breeze.

thank you . i like your imag . if you like can look my weblog

frogpondsrock June 11, 2012 at 6:17 pm

I did look at your weblog and you have some interesting images as well

Linda June 11, 2012 at 6:14 am

OMG! That is a totally awesome, precious and priceless photo! Please take steps to see that it lives forever!

Have I told you lately what a treat it is to go back to my old photos and put together a set ot two for this. Not only does it help me remember the places i’ve been (“Oh, the PLACES you’ll go…”) but it reminds me that (she said humbly) I’m a pretty good photographer.

Thank you for this wonderful forum!

Thanks Linda and your comment has come just in the nick of time, I have been thinking of finishing the meme at #75 but as long as there is still one person enjoying themselves I will keep it going. Cheers Kim

frogpondsrock June 11, 2012 at 6:16 pm

janet June 11, 2012 at 12:32 pm

What fun! That’s a wonderful captured moment. I hope you will keep the pictures coming.

frogpondsrock June 11, 2012 at 6:15 pm

I will Janet, I will :)

Andrea @ From The Sol June 11, 2012 at 1:04 pm

You have captured a joy that will now live with you forever. What a beautiful moment …

Now I just have to remember to print it out and have it framed.

Jebaru June 11, 2012 at 6:19 pm

This makes me want to get on a swing again! Looking at this photo, I can almost feel that “wheeeee” feeling again. Nothing like it and I don’t think it ever grows old.

Sharon @ Funken Wagnel June 13, 2012 at 1:27 pm

What a loving, happy, family shot:) Made me smile
