Such a simple picture but it really says so much!
Thanks Marissa. I passed it on my bike ride and told my husband I HAD to get that picture. 🙂
Definitely worth stopping to catch this one.
Oh, this is so beautiful. I can’t think of a lovelier place to be!
Thank you Heart! Doesn’t it look just perfect to be….and day dream. Twirling. And drifting….
I like your imagining of twirling and twisting. That’s not what I saw, but I like it!
🙂 Thank you Carolin. I like how we can all see “an” image and come up with such different thoughts, ideas, perspectives.
indeed, so serene and lovely!
Nothing like a swing on a lazy summer day.
So nice a thought. 🙂
Reading the comments made me realize that I viewed the image quite differently. The twisted ropes of the swing, making it not accessible and inviting, represent for me the twists of real childhood, the trials and hard lessons we all are confronted with. The twisted ropes for me represent the “real” nature of childhood and existence rather than the Disneyland, unattainable fantasy of what we think childhood to be. Even though it’s hard, I’ll take real over fantasy any day.
I so appreciate the depth of what you can see. Your comment reminds me of something I read yesterday about how adults should not burden children with adult problems and issues. It made me think of how adults are responsible for those twisted ropes, when I read your words.
🙂 Thank you Huck!
You’re very welcome. 🙂
Love the swing! Great photography 🙂
Thank you Niaaeryn 🙂 I saw it, rode past it and told my husband that I WILL stop and take that picture on my way back.
It sent me to places in my memory. My grandpa and grandma had only one rope swing with a wooden seat. It taught us to take turns and enjoy each other. 3 of us working as a team. My one brother got the most rides since we still consider him the “baby.” 🙂
I have a sibling or two I would still consider the baby too! 🙂 What a great memory Robin.
Thank you for making it come to life (and keeping it “real,” Colleen. )
I love it! I really like the tree, and the swing just makes it perfect! 🙂
It was such an idyllic image Debra. 🙂
Your photos are great storytellers!
Thank you APril! 🙂
I really like your finishing!
Thank you Koji! 🙂
Swinging observation, MBC!
Hahahahahaha! Well done MBM!
Home. I think of home. That was a long time ago. My space, to swing, think and read. What a lovely image.
🙂 That’s a nice thing to think about, and feel good about. 🙂
It is, isn’t it? Someday my kids will have that swing.. we don’t have it right now.. no trees 😦
Sigh…… somewhere out there a tree is waiting.
