Vernal Equinox


We arrive at the park, lots of people doing the sorts of things you would expect on a late summer day: swim, chase, laugh, party, cook, embrace, love.
A child cries, then the discordant voice shouts( "shut the &#^& up"), the child cries louder, the voice shouts again: this is not a nice place to be, can we leave now!
Through the rusty playground I see a a group silently wandering the sand spit: I have already left.

  3. An interesting post. The jarring of the rusty wire against the green grass seems to supply a visual echo of the arguments in the park.

  6. An amazing post and an interesting realisation of the theme of balance. The foreground is a playground, but it's rusty so there's yin and yang there also. And though I tend to think of wire rope as very strong, the bottom is unraveling, which is entropy working against order. A sobering but thought provoking post.
