A trip to the local mall got me this shot of parents taking a break and letting their kids run off some steam...

it's the lonely elvis-impersonating banana! (read the forums: there was almost a whole thread dedicated to bananas). A close-up (with parent permission) would have been nice, but of course this shot gives that chaos feeling that is probably more accurate.

Seems a bit blurry, try a faster shutter speed.

I wish my mall had something like this.

A good idea but too busy for my tasts. The whole picture looks blury probably due to camers shake during exposure, usualy any shutter speed of 1/30 or longer needs some means of steding the camera.

Yup. This is city life. Getting out of the heat to the indoor playground... or out of the cold (as we do this in winter when we feel cabin fever coming on). Also, looking for a safe environment for your kids to play. Wishing for a little better focus, but I like it.

the giant banana rules!

i think this would be a more interesting pic to a big fan of children. imo, i would like to see something more specific as the focus of the pic rather than the entire scene.

Nice shot! I wonder what this would have looked like photographed from the leve of the indoor playground... :) = 7 - jmsetzler

It's a little fuzzy, with too much going on (Maybe concentrating on a single rat would have helped.)

blurry but great idea

Hee cute! So instead of playing WITH food, they play on it ;) Neato concept- cool picture!

That's them alright, great sighting! <g> Fun shot with a nice perspective it's just not clear and crisp. Hand held?
