This is very funny!

Malyss said...

The movement, the red hairs, the faces..make me think of a preraphaelite painting, in the mood!
and yes, the bench is somewhat overwhelmed!:)

Sistertex said...

They are actually looking a little bit worn out! And perhaps trying to think of what their next move is! ;) Nice capture! Happy New Year to you RuneE!

I don't know who these young people are or what they are looking at but I have to notice that they are an unusually attractive group. Six beautiful young women and two rather fortunate young men are looking intently at something interesting. If these are American young people then they represent us well. The term "ugly American" would not apply.

John said...

I don't think the one on the left cares.

Rajesh said...

Great bunch of youngsters.

EG Wow said...

Hehe! I wonder what they ARE looking at!

Carver said...

Great shot and a fun post for the letter Y.

Gigi Ann said...

Oh that is so cute, love your choice for Y day.

MorningAJ said...

Must be a fascinating place to visit. Though this bunch don;t seem too impressed :)

Sylvia K said...

A fun shot indeed, Rune! I love it! Wonder what they're thinking? Hope your new year is off to a great start and filled with all the good things!

Wow! 8 kids and only 7 sitting down on the bench. Now, if that kid on the left would move over a bit, the girl in the back could sit down also. I guess they are waiting for the ferry back to New York? How long ago were you in New York?

PS Not sure when I might blog again so if you want to write comments, you have to do it on the last one, I suppose . . .

Maybe they're waiting for the school bus? Or there's a parade coming? Great shot and a unique take on the letter Y. Happy New Year! :D

Han i den blå hettegenseren har en mine som eldste guttungen min har akkurat nå.....

Cezar and Léia said...

Nice-looking kids, although the boy on the left looks unhappy, but maybe he's just tired from trekking around Ellis Island.
Excellent photography, as usual, Rune.

A beautiful group, I like the gorgeous hairs of the girl in the red shirt in particular (and what is that on the bag Superman girl is holding?)

Wonderful capture for Y. They do look like beautiful youngsters!

Hans HB said...

Selv om ikke alle på bildet følger helt med så hadde det vært morsomt å sett fortsettelsen...
Artig bilde, RuneE

Her er du da i ditt rette element Rune :-))

photowannabe said...

Perfect choice for the letter Y. Yankees at Ellis Island. A fascinating place to see.

Craver Vii said...

Those aren't just any youngsters, RuneE. I noticed that they are joined by Supergirl on the far right.

The way most of the group is so captivated, it does make one wonder what they were looking at.

Hildred and Charles said...

Lovely groupt of young people, - and so intense!

James said...

Very nice capture. I wonder what they where looking at.

becky at abbeystyle said...

Really! those silly Yankees...so cute and all :)

lynnwiles said...

Are you calling me a Yankee? I like the way they are all so unaware of you and your camera.

Ann said...

You climbed up the Statue of liberty. I went 35 years ago and so wanted to go again when I took my kids. But my husband booked a boat trip.

Cheryl said...

Nice capture. Yankee fans who appear to be stuck on Ellis Island. How fitting! (Spoken like a true Boston fan.)

Paula Scott said...

Brilliant! And, I agree: nice capture!

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Stilig :) Spørs om ikke de har ser en lærer som dytter i gang bilen eller en kjekk gutt :)

Nanka said...

A lot of emotions expressed on their faces and wonder if they are all thinking the same thing!! :D

imac said...

Who knows, but whatever they are looking at, You have captured them great Rune.

VALKYRIEN said...

Det bare Må være en stilig gutt som går forbi! Morsomt bilde! :)

Og det er kjempestilig det under her, med den ringen rundt sola! Det sies jo at man ikke skal ta bilder rett mot sola, men av og til kan det bli ganske flott - som her!

Ønsker deg et riktig godt nytt år Rune!

T. Becque said...

That poor boy on the left, he looks miserable! Are we still called Yankees? Just wondering. :)

Jay said...

What a great picture! But are you sure they weren't tourist from Yemen or Yugoslavia? LOL!

We visited Ellis Island on a trip to NYC - great fun and very informative! We had a great time.
