    hahaha…I agree…blinking bongos!!!

    what I like most is the little kids bum in the first one…it’s sort of a delight to see such freedom…we live in such a closed up world now, it saddens me. I remember running about nekkid as a kid.

    lovely images…yet again. thanks.

    I saw a a girl about 12 on a beach in Cornwall last summer playing in the sea naked. but I know what you mean:( The moment I saw her I looked away and somehow expected a policeman to put his hand on my shoulder:( Its a shame really that kids can’t play innocently without adults thinking its wrong:(
