STANTON DREW 27 – NOBODY HAS COME OUT TO PLAY (MONO + COLOUR)

.

No one's at play
.
Child’s swing, empty, above autumn leaves;  22 Oct 2014.

This is a strange garden, which belongs to a short row of houses in the village.  It is quite large, and set upon what is effectively a traffic island, with the main lane through the village on one side, and two smaller lanes on the other sides.  On two sides its raised up at about head height above its surroundings so that, looking across it, your eyes are near ground level.

It houses some clucking hens and their coops, with nothing except the drop to keep them from straying off along the lanes.  And there is this swing, hanging from a large tree.

D700 with 24-120 Nikkor at 120mm; 1600 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Low Key 2 preset and selectively restoring colour.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    I really like this one, Adrian.

      Thank you, my friend! And, yes, Stoppard’s right – and I think that retaining a childlike sense of wonder at the world around us is an important facet of being a photographer – because if we can instil any of that wonder into our photographs, we are succeeding in our chosen medium. I hope this finds you well and happy, my friend! Adrian 🙂

    Your processing gives this a very vintage feel – like something from the 60s or 70s. It looks like an old style of swing too – before elfin safety stepped in.

    What a curious place for a park; intriguing!

      Glad you like the shot – thanks! Yes, ST is an intriguing little place – but “little” is the word – step into it and you’re almost out of it again. Elfin safety, eh >>> in its (many) OTT moments, right down there with Political Correctness! A 🙂
