Children, Life in General
Comment 1



Water is a wonderful thing and now that the sun is making a meaningful appearance, my daughter is enjoying the delights of water play.  Almost every day she strips off and insists I give her a bucket of water to sit in.  Occasionally we treat her to the paddling pool but she seems just as happy with a selection of buckets and bowls to squeeze into.


This weekend she got to enjoy water play with her friend Ethan.  And what a shocker, she kept her clothes on.  Hooray for sprinklers!


Playing with water is such simple fun for children, and it’s actually an incredible privilege.  Nearly two million children a year die for want of clean water.  Put another way, dirty water kills 5,000 children a day.

If that makes you want to burst into tears, go to and give the gift of water.

  1. Hello….

    I came across your b/w photo (#1 above) while I was doing an image search for an ad campaign I am working on. I would like to use the photo in one of the ads we are presenting to the client, however, I need to get your permission first. Also, if they choose the ad, would you be willing to let us use it?

    To give you a little background, the company the campaign is for manufacturers fiberglass water pipes that are non-corrosive and handle pressure better than their competitors. Because they are non-corrosive, the water they deliver is always clean.

    Thanks so much and I look forward to your response.
