Nice shot Donald. I see you have not lost your touch. In Canada we call it a slide. Most of them seem to be plastic now adays.
I like this shot for the tones textures and composition, but when I look at it I also wonder why the empty deserted playground. Even though it might be because it is getting dark, this shot makes me think about how different things are for kids these days, when they cannot stay out and play the way I did when I was growing up.
Excellent, Donald. That's the sort of shot I like to take. I'm glad you posted this because I've been trying over the past few days to shoot close-up to smallish objects with my Tokina 11-16. Problem is the min focus distance is about 14in, unlike the Sigma 10-20 which is just a few inches. Seems with the Tokina you need larger objects at close range. I've tried it with an extension tube but it won't focus.
Very good shot.
.Wendy - It was at 6:55 this morning. Kids are probably still on their playstations (or whatever is 'the thing' these days
I kind of figured that, but the isolation and the playground still made me think of how different things are today for kids. To me besides being technically a great shot, it's also a symbolic shot (in my crazy mixed up mind anyway)
Superb image Donald. I could just eat the atmosphere in you images. Keep 'em coming.
