Swinging Time

What do we adults do when we go to IKEA? We bounce on the beds and lounge on the sofas. This little girl checks out a hammock while her siblings and mother looks on. It was an unexpected and happy photo moment for me as I was chillaxing on a cushion seat nearby. For the unusual and dramatic perspective, I held the camera directly above her and framed with the LCD screen tilted at an angle.

The giant Swedish store is great fun for children, adults and shutterbugs during the current hazy spell. The over 8 feet-long Garo hammock and stand retails for RM 398 (about USD 125).

Trivia: The largest IKEA store is the Stockholm store at 594,000 sq ft. The biggest outside Sweden is Shanghai at 531,000 sq feet. The sole Malaysian store is 360,000 sq ft.
