  1. You always have such great quotes to compliment your photography. loved the pics.

  2. Nice shot. Was this in Melbourne or Sydney, or somewhere else?

  3. Loved these shots Jane! And just for the record I don’t intend to grow up! 😀

  4. This is a marvelous, fun and sometimes sassy set. Loved it.

  5. You’ve captured the spirit of these kids so well with these photos. I’m particularly drawn to the 1st one – that image is superb.

    • Thank you, Mark, for your kind compliment. The first was a favorite moment of split second luck with a bit of good anticipation. I’m happy you enjoyed this set and really appreciate your comment.

  6. what precious shots….loved ‘jumping’,,amazing how u captured that!!!
    so innocent…OH the day????

  7. The Aussies will be much the worse when you leave them behind Jane – love that first capture. Safe travels.

  8. They are lovely photos. They speak well of the joys of childhood. 🙂

  9. Wow! They are so good! I specially love the first one. Awesome! And the quotes are just perfect.

  10. Love these photographs, Jane. As always, you capture so well the spirit of your subject.

  11. These are so spectacular! My heart is a bit brighter for having viewed them today!

  12. Son miradas limpias de ambiciones ….

  13. Oh the joy and wonderment you always capture with your photos of children, how the heck did you find fig tree boy? Linda

    • Thank you so much, Linda. Isn’t he darling? I saw him exploring the fig roots, which are enormous, as you can see. He finally plopped down in the perfect “secret seat” that he found, quite pleased with himself and I clicked the shutter. He was up in seconds. A lucky capture! Happy you enjoyed this set.

  14. Love looking at all your pictures, these are the definition of heartwarming.
    I am enjoying the armchair travel

  15. Jane, these are all such great images! You have really captured the joy of being a child! These bring me back to my childhood.

  16. Love these photos Jane, they show the happy, multicultural mix of children in Australia. Hope you have a safe trip home, and will maybe catch up again on your next trip to the land down under…

  17. What a terrific series! Well done Jane!

  18. Outstanding, Jane! Like the “Fig Tree Wonders” and the “Say, AH!” photos best – can’t decide which is my favorite! 🙂

  19. Your portraits captured sheer joy. All of them are beautiful!

  20. Terrific images Jane. The first one is really special.

  21. Even with the gorgeous scenery in some of the photos, what I “saw” was what was happening inside of those children. The poses, eyes, smiles, thoughtfulness……all part of the wonder and discovery in the hearts of the young. We should never let that go no matter how many years we own. Miss you! Suzie

  22. Jane, great to see this face of Australia through your eyes. Nicely done.

  23. what a fantastic set of photographs!

  24. Hi Jane,
    Great pics. I’ve enjoyed your thoughts on Australia. Some you posted were not all that far from my home which reminded me I haven’t visited the Apostles and Port Campbell NP for a little while.
    I hope you have enjoyed your visit.

Love to hear what you think...
