Kids & Pipes

Perfect composition by Bubley, (as usual) of kids and the iron or steel playground equipment that was built to last but is deemed unsafe and scarce on the landscape now.

Memories of a Big Splash

This park was in my neighborhood and I spent a large part of my childhood there. This picture reminds me of the time my mother took my siblings there to go swimming (before my time) and my brother climbed the high-diving board and jumped. He didn't even know how to swim! Scared my mom to death.
