The Playground Variations

Playground 1 fr

In the empty playground,

Patience hangs from the monkey bars;


Silence sits on the swings.


The children’s laughter stands waiting

For the games to begin.

Perhaps tomorrow……

Memories will perform cartwheels.

      Glad you enjoyed . Your recent Summer Walk post is a very effective & atmospheric composition. 🙂

  3. You have made the playground look very futuristic. The bars in the first shot look like some kind of space chrome and the little bouncy thing has the illusion of floating.

      Good observation – the high contrast really altered the shadows on that bouncy seat composition. It does appear to be detached from the ground. Playgrounds today either have an faux old time wood look or a futuristic plastic-metal appearance. Considering the level of anxiety that our media & social mavens/experts has inflicted on young parents, surprised the whole playground is not covered in bubble wrap or just declared a industrial site – no children allowed.
