Go outside and play.
That’s what our mother always told us.
When we were cranky, or rambunctious, or simply underfoot while she was trying to mop the kitchen floor.
Go outside and play is your mandate this weekend.
And shoot. Photos please, not birds.
If you’re particularly impressed by what you’ve done, consider entering The Great Outdoors Photography Competition sponsored by Matador Network, one of the greatest travel reading and viewing pleasures I know.
Oh and um, remember to wipe the mud off your feet before you come back in.
