THE GREAT WORLD

Great big buildings! Grown-up toys!
Quite a thrill for little boys!
Mummy and Dad went to HongKong
And they took Harry and Max along.
Will they remember the thrill of it all,
When buildings shrink and they are tall?

When buildings shrink and they are tall?

Yes, when their thought levels overtake the building heights..!!

They're watching everything! I like the way the buildings look almost as if they've been drawn by pencil.

Nice contrast of background and foreground - how young our grandchildren do travel. I wonder how much of it they will remember, other than by today's
smart photography!
