Longing to childhood by YagaK Longing to childhood by YagaK
We are lost in adulthood. We don't have time to think about those beautiful things when we were children. The fun we used to have while swinging on the swing, playing tag, running and jumping with our childhood friends, playing seek and hide...sometimes we just forget. Used to be so eager to be an adult, now wishing to turn back the time... But if we just close our eyes, we will see the open space again and notice the warm sun, green grass and remember the old times...

This is amazing, i shows with but one simple picture how fragile our lives are. People need to just sit and forget that silly dignity that we "adults" have and just be ourselves. Unfortunatly this is frowned upon by most of society and we are all contained under the choice of our own kind. We are doom to ourselves in this way.

I remember as a child that there were moments of exstacy, the split second i caught some one playing tag and the thrill of it, the feeling of being part of the group when with my friends and simply being totally bliss ful in those moments.

Now that i am older I rarely get those now, thank you for capturing it all in one photograph.

Its terrifying being on the brink of adulthood. It makes you see just how fast life has gone by. I want to grow up and do things with my life, but at the same time I'm terrified of losing everything I have now.

Its a beautiful piece.

Unfortunatelly people forget about being innocent as kids.. They forget how it feels being happy from simple things, like a rainbow after rain, fluffy clouds, bird singing..
What a shame..
If they could only stop for a moment and look at the beautiful sky...or feel the wind in hair..

This is the part where I'm lost for words. Right now, I don't know what to say about what I like about this piece. Umm...here I go.

I like that it doesn't have a lot of colour. It...adds to the concept you're addressing, I guess? And I also like that it's the kid by him(her?)self, flying the kite, and that there isn't a lot of stuff in the field. It's just an open space. That...I can't find words to express why I like this. Stuff like this reminds me of how I'm losing my childhood already. I'm 14. ><

Take some wall pictures and then use them as filters/textures to make the "old" feel.
