5 in 5 - MELANIE - January 2016

Melanie is my friend who lives in Australia and she loves photography.  Every month, since the start, Melanie has taken
part in this monthly meme and we managed to find a way round
 her not having a blog by posting here.
I love that we have found a way for her to take part! 
So, over to you Melanie:

The first 5 in 5 for the year and I was taking my young grandson down to a local playground so thought how neat ‘Feet in Five on the fifth’ would be.  What I didn’t realise was how quickly those feet could move and how in five minutes he could pack in so many activities.  He is 21 months and saying quite a few words mostly proceeded by ‘See Look’  or ‘Look at that’.  We had not been to the playground since the beginning of December and he was delighted to be there again but what to do first?  The middle bottom photo is when we first arrived and he was running towards the play equipment. ‘See look steps’  and up he went on steps taking him to the slide far too quickly for a photo but the top LHS is as he reached the top and prepared to come down the slide.  Coming down the slide the camera clicked away but feet were very out of focus so next it was on to the rocker (a sort of horse on a spring).  He hardly rocked at all as he spotted a girl had just got off the swing and he was running over to the swing. Top RHS photo is on the swing.  

After a few to and froes he must have needed to relax and ran (he never walks these days but thankfully he runs at my walking pace) to a sort of short tunnel with holes in where he could lie with his feet up one side and his head up the other.  He once studied an older lad in this position and ever since it seems to be a favourite of his.  After the tunnel he latched on to two older girls who were playing a chasing game.  He wasn’t part of their game and they totally ignored him but he was running round after them for probably the next ten minutes.  Of course I was following as well but my camera had done its 5 mins work so keeping up with him was easy.

If this has inspired you to pick up your camera and take part in
 this challenge you have until 25th before this months link closes.

  It's great fun and you can see more posts and link up here.  
And if you want to know more 5in5 this post should answer any
questions and give other information that you need.

Hopefully Melanie will be back next month and I hope you will join us. Thank you for popping by, it is great to have your company!
