My daughter wanted her two sons aged 10 and 8 to stay with us (Grandparents) for a few days away from their own home parents and two sisters. The purpose was to experience life from a different age and relationship perspective, to learn to live with respect regard and love with elders, to listen to stories, to see the difference of indoor and outdoor life, to realize the value of time, to learn how to manage self (clothes, shoes, making beds, cleaning bathroom etc) and above all to Make the Real Life Connection’ that is fast vanishing from our social scene.
For the Lens Artist Challenge #53 – Amy’s ‘Connection’ I am sharing some moments captured during our grandsons’ stay with us.The place is Bani Gala a valley surrounded by low hills about fifteen to twenty kilometers from the Capital City Islamabad Pakistan. The Rawal Dam Lake is clearly visible and the sunsets are divine and glorious to watch.
