Empty Swings

Empty Swings

The day this was taken it was cold and snowy. The temperatures had stayed below freezing for almost a week and we had not seen much of the sun during those wintery days. However, I did brave the cold to spend some time at Blendon Woods for some shooting. I read where it’s good to shoot every day. I feel I do a pretty good job of this, probably shooting 350 days a year.

This swing looks a little lonely with all the cold and snow. The silence is so amazing during a winter snowfall. But, when warmer weather comes and the children rush to grab a swing the silence will be broken. Laughter will fill the air.

  1. Impressive! 350 days/year. You need to fly to some warm climates! Too cold, dude! It’s been cold here, too, but no snow.

    • Yes, I do need warmer climates but heck I saw last night where Key West had a temperature of 59 breaking a 100 year old record.

  2. Monte I love images of swings and as usual I have a great story/lesson about them and thinking ahead from second grade. Keep posting them they remind me of lessons learned.
