Tracy on her blog, Milkay Photography – Project 365, recently did a Playground Series. She photographed an old playground before it was to be demolished to make way for safer modern equipment. The series captured the nostalgia of a bygone time when kids played for hours without worrying about today’s over protective environment.
Last weekend I was at Mercer Park in Baldwinsville, New York which has some swings which reminded me of the ones I played on in grade school. Then I spotted the warning on the seat. I am sure the swing manufacturer has a few lawyers on its payroll. At least it is made in the USA. Hear the sarcasm?
Later in the day, I watched my niece’s son swinging as I remembered myself doing. Without a worry in the world. Just the simple joy of a swing.
