The Gallery. Two.......


This post is my first entry for The Gallery, a virtual art gallery dreamed up by the lovely and most enterprising Tara at Sticky Fingers. Every week she is giving the blogosphere a prompt, and it is our task to take, or choose, a photograph that represents it. This week the prompt was 'numbers'.

I took the picture a few weeks ago because it sums up life on Long Island for me with the Littleboys; two scooters, on the beach, in winter. And here is what it makes me think.

Two little boys. Two little scooters.
Brothers, best friends, rivals, partners in crime.
Double trouble, double pleasure. Two boys forever, doing everything together.
Sometimes we wonder if two should become three? But who knows the answer. Certainly not me.....

Love your photo. Could a native NYer be on the cards for you?!

Lovely photo. We have a pink version of the scooter. Seems unusual to see it on a beach when my daughter usually has to drag it through muddy grass!

We have those scooters, but in pink!

Thanks everyone, I am so glad you like the picture.

The beach IS lovely - we are very lucky. But you can't get a Long Island Iced Tea there though sadly - all beaches here have very fierce 'no alcohol' notices......as for the scooters, they are the boys' absolute favourite thing and I would recommend them to everyone.

As for a native New Yorker, it's not on the cards at the moment but one day my indecision might get the better of me....

Great pic, and is it that sunny with you now? And all I'll say about two becoming three is that if you're still pondering the question, you probably want it to happen. Don't you think?

Don't know what I'd do without those scooters. x
