Summer Fun Forgotten

Lonely swings.
Our favorite ice cream haunt.
The lone bug.

Looks more like and ice skating rink than a pool.

No kids today teeter-totter!

Today I decided to do a mix of color and black and white from a recent shoot at the park. These places are usually full of people during the spring, summer and early fall! Kids and parents running around having the time of their lives, living in the moment! I love to see all the kids with smile so big that it makes you forget about the toils in every day life.

Sadie was not happy with this shoot because I would not let her get out of the car, it was far too cold for that! When I was done shooting the frozen pool, she said "Mommy, I want to swim". I laughed a promised when it was warm again, we would swim and play at the park and go to Twistee Treats for ice cream! She was satisfied with the answer, for now!

I don't know why but the teeter-totter is my favorite photo today! It just leaps off the screen at me for some reason! Which is your favorite and why? I would love to hear your response.

Looks like a ghost town! :)
I like the lone bug, he looks so pathetic and sad, like your Sadie, he wants to swim and play!! haha!

I like the Twistee Treat picture too, I think that's the first time I've seen an ice cream shop in the shape of a soft-serve cone! I love it!

Oh gosh, how I miss summer. It's like 30 below with the wind chill here to day. Uggg! My little one just told me this morning how she didn't like winter anymore. LOL!! Have a great weekend.

Hey there JO!

I like the lone bug shot due to its contrast and almost an abstract look with all the line of the jungle gym in the background. The teeter totter shot really pops also. Those are my faves!

Have a great day! Send us some cold!

I hope you are staying indoors with Sadie today and not going outside to take pictures. It's like -16 right now.

I'd have to say the bug photo because it is so colorful. Being that everything is frozen white/gray here, it is nice to see some bright colors! I LOVE the ice cream place--who wouldn't want to get something there? I could go for a dipped cone right about now.....

I like the bug eyes. It looks like it is saying come play with me. If that play ground was here you would not see it. We have a lot of snow and it's very cold.

I like the frozen pool shot ,because I have never seen a frozen pool before. The average winter day here is about 12 Celsius not cold enough to freeze a pool. I also like the DOF and the slightly out of focus fence. The building in the background with Nemo painted on it adds to the cuteness.
