    CC: Have to get that reality check huh! 😉


  13. SimpleAlex Says:

    But really. Kids, me no likey,

    CC: Reminds me to keep pack them away when you’re in the room. LOL


  16. xin Says:

    kids hold on to u when they r small, then try to get rid of u when they r teens, then will ask u to pick their shit as they grow up. lol. the rule of life i guess?

    CC: Then when they have kids the circle goes round and round. 😀

  27. Bengbeng Says:

  28. Center Parted Says:

    Just heard over the radio, ‘Hold me now’ by Johnny Logan. Gosh, haven’t heard that for ages!! Lovely song… probably apt for your topic today huh – hold?

    Well, not exactly, but who cares!?! 🙂


    CC: I really like that song though iit always brings me a sense of sorrow.


  29. Elizabeth Says:

    The challenge we face is to keep the imagination and curiosity of a child as we become physically stronger. It is so easy to develop a rigid pessimistic mind as an adult. I also like to photograph children because the curiosity and intenseness on their faces in shots is priceless.

    CC: That is indeed a great challenge nowadays. The window of innocence is getting smaller by the day.

  33. eastcoastlife Says:

    When my son was little, I held on to his hands, now he supports me when I walk. haha… It’s a little too early for me to be needing support.

    CC: I’m sure when the time comes, he’ll be there to hold your hands, guiding your through every single steps. 🙂


  34. kikey Says:

  36. Kok Says:


    I am still a child,
    who is still learning to hold.
    To hold on, to this complicated world,
    I know, if I don’t hold, I’ll definitely fall…

    Have a great weekend, cc.

    CC: We all have a child in us, he comes out every now and then to remind us of the good innocent things. 🙂 You take care! 😀


  37. HLiza Says:
