A nice playground in such beautiful and natural environment. I would love to play here if I were a child. Beautiful color of red contrasting very well with the green surrounding.

Voilà un endroit qui doit être bien agréable pour les enfants et leurs parents. J'aime beaucoup le contraste de couleurs entre l'environnement vert et le playground aux belles couleurs vives.

chissà che vocio quando i bambini si gettano su questo gioco. Bello il contrasto dei colori e la tranquillità che traspare dalla foto.

Relaxing image of this playing area, the vivid colors are pleasantly emerging between the trees, and the man (a daddy I suppose) on the right, taking some second of stop from his child...

Indeed in my city are almost everyday grandmother or grandfather busy with grandchildren in the playground, but I see also on the apparatus.
Very quiet place without the sound of the children.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant.
Excellent presentation, lovely composition.
Very well done, TFS.

Contrast of the red playground structure, with it's intense tone, stand-out to the surrounding green, Barbara.
Superb clearity, and no backlight-effect, normally happens in situation alike.

magnifico l'effetto creato dal coloratissimo parco giochi rosso-blu in mezzo a questa incantevole vegetazione. Il controllo della luce è eccezionalmente efficace, e mi piace molto la qualità dell'immagine. Complimenti.
Un caro saluto

There you go again, simple photo with superb results!! Barbara, you've captured what all adults wish they could still do and without fear of killing ourselves in a fall or something; PLAYING ON THE PLAYGROUND. Excellent color and light control and your POV is very playful for sure. Great Job Barbara!!
TFS...........Your Friend from California.........Buddy

Hi dear Barbara
A very brave shot from you. I don't know about Houston, but here in Australia, anyone with a camera near a playground is viewed with suspicion. Not a nice thing for those of us who love photography and have no intention of doing anything bad with the photo. I sometimes think the world has got a little too protective and politically correct. Anyway, thanks for your colourful photo and note. It has given me pause for thought.
