Wordless Wednesday - Grated
London, ON, April 2008 [Click to embiggen]
The scene: The playground in the neighborhood park a few blocks from home. Our daughter and youngest son are busily climbing, swinging, sliding and squealing with glee. I'm sitting on a bench, trying to keep track of it all, thinking about a similar park in a similar neighborhood hundreds of kilometers and a generation removed from here. I'm imagining my parents deriving joy from watching me all those years ago. I think about how fleeting these experiences are, how fast my own kids are growing. I wonder if my parents thought the same thing as they watched me fly between the swings and the teeter totter.
I often bring my camera here. It's the kind of place that gives up something new every time we come. This time, I turn my attention to one of the climbing platforms. The pattern of the grating can't be ignored. So after their little feet have propelled them elsewhere, I zoom in and shoot.
Your turn: This is the final posting in support of this week's Thematic Photographic theme, monochrome. It's not too late to post your own similarly-themed photo or link. Click here to dive in. I'll be posting the new theme later this evening.
