I read about this photographer Charles W. Crushman on Design Mom. Looking through his archives I picked these images of children in everyday life to share.
I recall pushing this type of lawn mower for fun in my grandparents well manicured back yard. Humble folks and lawn proud. My grandfather called from his window for me to stop clipping the lawn. He cut a perfect lawn and there I was hacking it up... I didn't know this grandfather well, it is one of my strongest memories of him.
Love the dresses and the general hanging around here. Do kids get the chance to just hang around these days? Days are lived fast and furiously. It's very hard to slow down. I love this photo since it reminds me to encourage my family to take it a little slower day to day. Hang around and see what happens.
Love the bare feet. No parents in sight. Do kids get to roam like this anymore?
A rare shot of Black children. Beautiful. The boy on the right reminds me of my friend Blake whose Grandmother was part Cherokee. She has the very same lovely eyes.
I could go on. Thanks for visiting this ad free blog zone,
