Weekly Photo Challenge / B4 Retouch: Companiable (Playing Companion)

This week photo challenge is ‘companiable’.

Quite a difficult word with lots of meaning in it.
I pull it apart in being able to be with a companion.
A companion is a mate or a match sharing the same activity, experience or situation.
My most faithful companion nowadays is my iPhone. Always with me.
Showing a picture of it is silly. So I choose different subjects.

Here is the first one: kids sharing a world while playing.
Maybe talking to the matador or dreaming to be him.
Taken in Nimes in France, outside the Arena.

The B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish in – an originally – small series.
That series caught on a bit more than I thought.
All of them are not retouched yet.
Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.

Other entries

(In my entries I  used to include all the pingbacks of the Daily Post so fare at the moment I published an entry. So I doubled a lot of pingbacks. I did it  to stimulate traffic to participants; I am on WordPress to get a bigger crowd for my hobby. I assume others want that too. However a lot of people got annoyed receiving multiple pingbacks of my publications. And were asking me to stop that. I can not and will not do that. For themselves they can decide if traffic is something they want, meaning more people seeing their pictures. From now on I will copy in the pingbacks that are there when I add  my first entry. And in my second and following ones  I will only publish pingbacks added since the earlier  entry. So nobody gets spammed, only people publishing more entries, like me. Who knows it will work better. People who still not like it can turn off pingbacks in their settings.)
