Playtime at the Mall

The play area at Governors Square Mall. Click on the picture to enlarge and see if you notice something that I didn't notice until I got home and was looking at this picture on my computer. Since this was a very public place, I thought it was alright to go ahead and post the picture.

It almost looks like some toy from this point of view. I had to look twice to see it is real. You were at a very high level.

You took a picture inside a mall? OMG! You're lucky you weren't arrested. Got to be careful 'cause the DHS is all around watching, watching, and waiting! :-)

I don't know what you saw that was unusual. It's a nice play area 'cause it has a wall around it. I notice the wall is probably to keep the kids in and not the adults out!

Re your comment on Ocala: Very funny and perhaps the best explanation of Bo-Kay I received!

I had a feeling about this. Even before I enlarged it what I'd find .No problem. The world keeps on spinning.

Is it the new mom nursing her baby at top left?

Stefan Jansson said...

A bit of breastfeeding going on.

How cute! What a cool play area. When My Honey tried to take a picture from a similar angle in a mall of a giant sand castle the security guy came over and told him photos weren't allowed. I guess you didn't look as scary! ;)

Owen loves that place. I think it's a bit bizarre. Lily has certainly nursed Gibson there. Ironically, twenty-three years ago I was told by a security guard not fifty feet from there that I couldn't nurse my baby in the mall. I was discreetly nursing her at a table in the food court. I mean DISCREETLY.
Mary Ann Lindley wrote a column about it and the mall offered me an apology.
I'm glad things have changed.

Lois said...

Mary, I'm glad things have changed too!

I think it's beautiful.

I walked into a McD's bathroom once and found a lady crouched on the floor against the wall, awkwardly trying to breastfeed her baby. It made me stop and cry.

Bravo to this young lady - and the parents and children around her who don't even notice! That's the way it SHOULD be.

Bravo to her indeed! I breastfed all four of mine and at that time it wasn't "the thing to do" and I didn't feed them in public. Terrific capture, Lois! Looks like such a fun play area, I think I'd like to play there, too!! Hope you've had a great weekend!

Good shot!

It's amusing to see the fuss made over breast feeding, like the Newsweek cover not long ago. Especially when advertisers, not to mention the Kardashians make millions from flaunting them.

Lowell said...

Can't believe I missed that. Oh, wait, I couldn't enlarge the photo! Whew!

Jack said...

They look like dolls in Candyland.

I'm glad that things are more relaxed now. My wife breastfed our son on an airplane several times, very discreetly. The Panera Bread where I eat breakfast, there was a lady there that very discreetly breastfed her baby there as well. Kids need to eat, I hate to see the Mom's banished to restrooms.

A very natural event, really i don't think many people even notice now. Love your angle on this shot Lois, it really does look like toyworld down there.

What a cool shot from above, Lois!
