The storm was looming above the playground

The storm was looming above the playground

But I was traveling north, only time for this photo.

For this wonderful blog that combines photos and words:

P.S. Footnote for Malin’s yesterday post! Isn’t it strange how we see things and drag them out of obscurity?

  1. well the rain photos were a pleasant surprise! I love weather photos – and the sculpture in the awnings adds something nice- also – the two photos of the rain are of the perfect size and I enjoyed them more because of the placement in the post (if that makes any sense… 😉
    alos, the first picture reminded me of a surrealist art painting – you know, where random things are placed here and there- not totally – but it felt like a “created” scene = with the mountains, cars, bench, old school merry-go-round – and of course I noticed the storm in the sky….

    • I have to admit that this post came in three parts. The original b&w top photo, a tribute to a better time. The playground was by a big road rest place, a giant building over the highway, with restaurants, fats food, toy stores, and many other shops like a shopping Mall, in the middle of nowhere. I went by there in 2013, for a memorial service, and most of the shops were closed, because of the crisis. This giant building had become a ghost. Thankfully the few remaining shops kept the building from falling into pieces.
      I took some photos, but for another blog, another time.
      Part two was about the newly scanned London photos I have been adding to every post until the end. These two were fitting for the title! Of course nothing special.
      Part three was added yesterday after visiting this blog: It was waving really, nothing more!

    • Thank you!
      You know it is a form of justice. Rich or poor, beautiful or ugly, etc. everybody and everything reaches an end. 😉
      It is not really a countdown, it is a normal day here for me. Working many crazy hours, having the kids in the afternoon and once in a while watching the comments. The posts are prepared a month ago, but photos and texts were added, as usual. The fact that I made it known, that I will stop, was merely because I like doing things in orderly fashion. And a good way to introduce you to each other, because you deserve it.

      • Ha ha probably will still take me a few days, they had some VERY strong opinions about what is going on in Greece and I need time to process what they said and what I think they meant, cuz initially I felt like there was an element of hypocrisy I’m what they were saying.

        That’s kind of the way I process conversations: I take a couple days, weeks, sometimes even months, in which I just think about what someone told me and I consider it from different perspectives…….
