splashed red in the park
no more the childlike cries of joy
still red, in the dark?

haha. When I saw the no filters thing I thought, “oh no! that makes things much harder!” Nice job finding colour that pops. 🙂
Yes and thank you Amy.
Justine certainly turned up the pressure dial! These were photos I took this weekend on a long walk, this park is very sad and almost derelict…
Glad to see a pop of colour Andy 😀
This has a sense still of darkness and sadness to it even with the colour or is it my imagination? 🙂
A quick response to the challenge, most impressed and Amy’s comment made me laugh x
It is a dark and sad place. The park is largely derelict and in need of repair. The mushroom bandstand or whatever it is, is abandoned in a hollow, falling apart and the surrounding ground flooded…anyway…a good if complex and demanding challenge this time Justine. And I did submit another pop elsewhere…
that really is sad, when i know this now and look back at it, its truly desolate and quite eerie x
It’s a great little collection Andy and a beautiful haiku. I like that you’ve captured the lonely old playground, unused and unloved.
Thank you DJ, and no filter, strewth!!
Most of the park was the same, I have a bunch of shots of a children’s playground and it looks so sad…
It is sad to see it so empty… Maybe in a few years, a new generation….
One hopes so…the world needs a new generation…
No filter !! I liketh 😉
People think i am weird because who goes on a everyday walk with a camera 😉 But ……’eureka’ …here is another 😛
United we walk with our cameras! x
I always find it sad to see a park looking so unloved. Great pictures. 🙂
Thank you! There was something deeply melancholic about this scene, in fact there are many places like this scattered about in Brüssel…
Moi , c’est le Rouge et le Noir …!!!
