Beautiful...and very cold looking...no swinging today!
What a great perspective.. love this.
W00t! And I love the new header! And, why am I up so late? Gah
Beautiful. I love the composition and the choice of monochrome.
love repeats/patterns and when in monochrome, that itself creates a pattern of colour, lots of lines too...great image!!
This works so well in monochrome.And the new header is fantastic...the ever evolving Daryl.
They look so sad.
Love all the vertical lines and love the new header.
I love the sense of stillnessthey're waiting for the children
Great shot and you should have entered it in Monochrome Weekly. It's great !!!V
Is it just me, or do these empty swings look terribly cold?
New header = very cool.Swings in February = good angle.Weather here = very cold.
cooo....cooo.cooo...trying to be like a cute pigeon (new header is nice!!!)like the swings capture too :)
baby it's cold outside! What's up with all the parks putting rubber matting down. The mud puddles were so much cooler :)
Lovely mono!Happy New Year!
I love the composition of that photo and the black and white is perfect!
Strange emotions they invoke. I first wanted to say it's wonderful to see. But then the absence of anyone on them does bring a bit of sadness. Great photos and perspectives. It leaves a lasting impression.
The angle you captured doesn't even make them look like swings, interesting shot.
Totally made me think of "Saturday in the Park" - the Chicago tune, if there's anything else...Not sure I like having this song stuck in my head. Huh.
Nice one Daryl - looks almost as cold as here today!
Swinging shot Daryl! :)
Being of a certain age - I think I've always preferred the flat board swings. More room for my butt.
Still swings always leave me feeling wistful. They make me realize how fast the years go by. And how simple and beautiful the fun life can be. Just have to take the ride.
the swings look so lonely....
funny, i actually saw a kid on a swing today and thought they were crazy!
Cold and dreary, abandoned and sad ... yep, that's January all over. February too, it would seem. You've really captured the feeling well here, and it's perfect for black and white. LOVE the pigeons and the lights in your header.
There is something I like about swings and playground equipment in the winter with no one on them. Good shot.
I need to be swinging! With a birds eye view.<><
Aloha, Friend!Another masterful shot-Comfort Spiral
Nice geometry in this monochrome image!
no one in the park today with this weather-A perfect Winter illustration Daryl.
They would have swung on their own today, with all of the wind...something terribly lonely about an empty swing. Nice shot!Like the new header too.
Love the perspective on the swings =)And, the new header picture is a keeper!xoxox
I just love this photo. It looks so peaceful.
Love those black & whites. And, what a statement. It's Cold!!!Stay warm.
nice B/W photo
There's just so much to love abotu this B&W is the perfect choice for starters, and the simple intersections of light/shadow subject/space... It's almost Zen-like. Very tranquil and moody.
Oh, and that pigeon on the left looks like one angry bird!
This is a beautifully sharp black and white shot. The contrasts are perfect.
Wow. I love that picture. Love it a ton. I can just imagine the happiness those swings evoke in small children!
Love this one.
There's something sad about playground swings at rest, isn't there? They should all be at angles, with feet stretched out in front, and perhaps a larger person behind ready to give a push.Love this photo, though. It evokes much in me - melancholy, to be sure, but also wistfulness. I want to ride a swing again. I think I'll make that a priority during my mini-vacation upcoming later this week.Thanks, Daryl!
This a wonderful picture. Thanks for sharing.
