When a year ago my friend Kapuschinsk posted a Bored Panda article I got asked if my work could be featured in one of the news services in my country. At first I was very happy about it but then it turned that the comments on the feature were devastating to me and at first it almost made me stop taking photos.

One of the comments saying that those photos were "useless because in each photo you can see the child's back" got stuck in my head. For some time I put my camera aside and took the time to think this through. I decided to keep working and prove that I won't let them destroy my passion and that you don't need a face in a photo to make it more interesting.

Your photo captures a moment of wonder and reminds me of Robert Frost's poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.

Really amazing, just because it's raining, doesn't mean you can't go outside to have fun :)

I love the photos... they seem to capture kids doing kid's things in a very candid manner. Personally I think it is best not to share "identifying features of little children on Fb, or other media for safety reasons, and I hate those ubiquitous "selffies" w/the mommies and their kids. Your work is NATURAL, and seemingly spontaneous - hope you share more of it. Kudos to a great photographer
