This week’s Photo Challenge is super interesting, asking us to envision a magazine cover. I imagine this one would be for a piece about childhood or nostalgia. Marvin the Martian and wrestling belts – how much more stereotypically boy childhood can you get?
I took the above photo at the Suitcase Rummage, an event held twice a month where people rock up with suitcases filled with second-hand or handmade items and try to sell them. They hold them down the East Coast of Australia now, so if you’re around and have a bunch of secondhand stuff you want to sell, it’s definitely worth a look.

Remember when you could only really clearly see things that were about a metre from the ground and so you had to look up at everything? When you’d go to the playground in the nearest park and amuse yourself for hours on a only a few pieces of colourful equipment? And your greatest concern was finding out what happened if you moved one of those red balls to the left? I must say, I don’t remember those times all that well, but I sure do miss them.
