    Great photograph Steppeland. I think they look rather bored with their ice cream – even though it looks good. Maybe a big red cherry on each scoop would liven things up :-)

  • LOL, indeed! bored, and tired, maybe… definitely not in the best of moods ;)

    Great candid shot! Don’t know how anybody could be bored with Dutch ice cream! Maybe the kids had been playing her up? We will never know, but your picture certainly stimulates the imagination. A definite favourite?

  • Thank you so much, BlueMoonRose! Indeed, we will never know, but it sure is a photo that makes one think, isn’t it LOL – thanks for the great comment and the fav!
