cool sign, unfortunately showing the weakness of the barber, he is completly depend on clients, cheaper is do the hair cut by yourself or keep the long hair :) poor barber, looks like he is going bankrupt :)
Contrasts by kloppenborg (977)

I remember my childhood, back in the days when I was a little boy. I was same, my favorite playground was a construction site or an abandoned house. The places where we could find a piece of rod or a stick which instantly became the finest samurai sword and we had so much fun… I can see in your photo, that not much changed nowadays and it’s an international thing, boys are boys whenever they grow up…
Anyway I also like the contrast you are talking about, between the old, which must make room for the new one, a little bit like these young boys (new shanghai) take over the old shanghai’s slums. Thanx for sharing and take care.

looks like a space craft just landed on the new planet. the temperature on the surface is over 1000 C due to the sun which goes over the horizont only for 2 hour every 57 hours. the crew just waiting for the sun set, when is cooler and they're able to go out for a walk...:)
cool photo, thanx and take care

Interesting photo, first time I see sth like this. I had always in my mind the picture of a beach as a place with semi naked people, screaming kids, inflatable things, etc… Your beach is different, there is a huge tractor almost like a tank, a guy on a bench who looks like he’s waiting for a bus and a lady who is doing a sleep walk, i think… It’s an urban beach, another day, another tank on a beach, everything is quite normal…:) . Thank you.

like the lines in your photo, they go along, across and diagonally + nice perspective creating the composition very interesting. i wouldn't say the picture is about the plants, it's more about concrete vs soil, it's half/half to me...:) thanx and take care.

Nice photo, urban playground looks a bit like an outside area in a prison nowadays, bars, bars, bars… Good to see that kids still do sth different than playing computer games and surfing internet 24/7…:)
Like that you didn’t upload your photo B&W, colours match to the playground very well.
Thanx and take care.
