It’s amazing how you have turned a simple playground into a dark and mysterious place… Reply Thanks Jayde-Ashe! I knew from the outset that I wanted to process the images in black & white in order to communicate a sense of abandonment. The results are just what I was hoping for. Reply Great photos, love the top one in particular. Reply Thanks so much, Mark! That’s my favorite too. Reply Great photos-love the lighting, lines and framing on the swings Reply Thanks Nora! I thought the rigid framing was a perfect way to convey the stillness of the empty playground – as if the swings are ‘standing at attention’ waiting for children to come and play with them. Reply Brilliant pictures. Reply Thank you once again Rabirius! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
