A Real Winner

She struggled to climb, fell several times and eventually reached the top.

A Real Winner

She might be the girl in the middle but she was tops in my book.


  1. The different hight of the "pedestals" these children standing on and their postures and gestures make this an excellent photo, Luna. Bravo.

    I have my own street photography blog (not the more generalist Bandung Daily Photo). You might want to have a look at it: It's
    (It has mostly black and white photographs with social criticism.)

  3. Children on pedestals
    Great candid! They couldn't have been posed any more brilliantly.

  4. beautiful capture. looks like taken in las ramblas.

  5. What an interesting photo! I like how everyone is doing something different, and that you captured the graffiti on the power boxes. It's been a while since I have seen such a unique photo.

  6. Eki,

    I am so glad you appreciated the photo and all the chaos in it.

    I looked at your street blog and

    I LIKE IT!!

    Great work and thanks for stopping by.

  7. Carina!!

    Yes ... you were first to comment and I am now using this new publishing tool, (new for me) and the post shows you are second.

    No matter.

    Ah, your words are like a trophy.

    You ... a wonderful photographer, in my opinion.

    Thank you!!

  8. Randy,

    Thanks so much for commenting and yes you did comment 2x and I appreciate your words tremendously.

    Children do have a way of posing without any help from the big folks,

    And, we should leave them alone to be free.


    Ah, well, thank you so much for looking.

  9. Photo!

    Thank you for the kind words.

    No ... the photo was taken at plaça Rius y Taulet, one of 2 plazas I thoroughly had great fun.

  10. Noah,

    I thank you so much for your in depth comment.

    You certainly looked and I like that.


  11. that's very interesting! cheers!

  12. Joshi,

    Thanks for your interest and

    Cheers back to you!!!

  13. That is a lovely candid shot - they look happy and not up to real mischief which seems to be the case hereabouts.

  14. Gerald,

    You're right!

    They were a bunch of kids doing what kids do, play and have fun.

    I've had wonderful experiences with kids of all ages including those who would be labeled 'hooligans' in the U.S.

    I believe the Barcelona I know, still holds traditional family values that seems to have trickled down to the troubled youth.

    In my opinion, with Spain becoming more and more westernized, I fear the young's attitude of respect with one another and toward the elders will slowly disappear, and that would be a very bad thing, indeed.

    Thanks for the looksee and comment, Gerald.
