Nostalgia is seeing kids rush along the roads playing wheels. Thrills that are free bring back memories of games of years past. Ah, those are times when play was play and more.

    Yep, I loved to play in our street with friends until my mother called that it was dinnertime. I wonder how many kids can do this now or want to do this now, even if they have the chance?

    This is a beautiful photo.

    This. is. a. very good. shot! I love the moment, I can feel the movement, the joy, the smile of those kids. Seeing kids like this can brighten our days :) And it comes in sepia color :) I love it even more.

    ahmed, eric, lynn- salamat. the wide angle of the Rebel's kit lens (18mm) really worked here in bringing back out the exhilirating feeling of children's freedom.

    alight- I hope you can get your problem fixed. that is strange to say the least.

    Great shot Farl, takes me back to my childhood too.

    Really captures the fun these boys are having and the B&W gives it a timeless feeling.

    It is a definitely a timeless shot..!

    I don't know if I'm repeating someone else, cause I didn't read all comments, but "roda" is also portuguese for wheel (in Timor Lorosae they call "roda" too).
