PhotoHunt: hands - Skipping rope in his hands

Earlier this week I heard someone skipping with a skipping rope in the driveway. It was my oldest, Giancarlo - doing some exercise before he went to the Gym.





This is my latest entry.

Great shots of your son. Skipping rope is fun but when I tried to do that some years back for exercise I couldn't believe how tired I got. Much harder than I recall from my youth. This was a wonderful take on the theme. Happy weekend.

Teeheehee... have to say that the last collage -- with those words there -- made me laugh (though not necessarily at the very fit Giancarlo or adoring-son you!)

Your son is looking fit with the skipping rope :)

stan said...

Great exercise. I can't skip rope for 5 minutes before dying of a heart attack.

happy weekend.

Bengbeng said...

Many, many years ago I could skip rope. That was also many pounds ago.

Teeheehee! Nice touch with the scrapbooking frames.

Back when I was very young, I know I could jump rope. Then one day in high school, I tried, and couldn't. Somehow, my coordination for that act was lost. I can barely get 3 - 5 hops in before my feet get tangled up!

This week, I entered twice: two similar settings yet two totally different takes. Do check them out here and here.

cheers,
*lynne*

Hootin' Anni said...

Okay....being honest here....am I to look at the hands? Well, I'm not. LOLOLOLOL

I'll give you a hand [applause] for posting such a great photo grouping for the theme this week.

I have added four different hands for my entry. If you have time today, stop by and say 'howdy'!!! Happy Saturday to you.

Grand idea for the week.

Have a great weekend!

archiearchive said...

Oh how terrible. Two evil words in one sentence!

"Exercise" and "Gym". I think I need to sit down for an extended period of time to recover from hearing them.

The photo is great so I shall forgive you ;)

Mrs Mecomber said...

Look at those flexed muscles! He must have known you'd put the photo up on your blog! ;)

My Photo Hunt is up! I hope you get a chance to visit me, too.

Trekcapri said...

Hi Leslie, wow great photos and take on this week's theme! Excercise before hitting the Gym! No wonder your son is close to perfect.

Wonderful photos and design for this week's theme and I love that saying!

Have a great weekend Leslie!

Mira said...

One handsome hunk, where are the hands again? LOL. Here's mine http://www.mirasblog.com/2009/03/photo-hunt-12-hands.html

It has been longer than long since I skipped rope. Of course I remember when hula hoops first came out and they were never easy to do either!
Great shots. Mine is up here.

Gmirage said...

Skipping ropes...ahh great memories of childhood :)

Love your take today! Enjoy the weekend!

PastorMac's Ann said...

Great photos! The caption on the last one made me smile - it fits the photo so well.

It's hard work jumping rope - no wonder he's in such good shape.

Nice picks for The Hunt!

girasoli said...

Fun take on hands. I used to love to jump rope as a child.

Great choice, Leslie! I'm going to borrow your perfect phrase.

The lace shop is called Emilia and it is very close to the main church in Burano and to the Lace Museum. They have a showroom/museum on the second floor. Your amethyst pashmina must be really lovely and a great reminder of the beauty of Burano.

Happy Sunday!

Patricia said...

Perfect, Leslie. And great presentation, too. Blessings!
