Found Message at the Playground

Beneath Your Feet is the weekly photo challenge

Signage, written in chalk.  No one else around don’t know who wrote it on the pavement in from of the bench.

Sunday evening, we were at the playground with my two youngest grandchildren.  My sister Mary  is the one who pointed it out.

Of course, I had my cell phone to capture and share!  Didn’t walk on it. Just wondered who felt compelled to write it.

Hang up and parent sign


Old Trees New Trees on a Winter Path

After school I drove into Highland Park, right near my home.  I’d taken a series of black and white photos for a film class years ago in this same spot and still have a print on my wall.

With the new snow today, I thought it might look interesting but the light was low and the sky thick and gray.

Found some new trees planted along the path, though.

I plan to return in the Spring.

There weren’t many dog walkers or walkers or runners or any activity in the park. The Super Playground deserted and covered with snow and ice.  No bicycles. The fountain turned off.  The reservoir a layer of ice.  The sounds muffled with the snow, but barely a car driving around the circle today.

It’s in color but almost looks black and white.
