Q: In Need of Inspiration in Tampa and Surrounding Areas

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

An old rope swing, covered now with moss, unused for many years, still waiting patiently for the children to come and play. Alas, there are no more children, perhaps I shall just stand and keep it company for awhile, dreaming of the days long gone by.

    What a beautiful capture, OC! The lights and shadows dramatize the already dramatic scene! The background is stunning.

    Never say never OC......inside every 'old' person is a young fellow trying to get out. Would love to see a photo of you swinging on that there swing. A wonderful image of a time that was only a memory ago. Wonderful lighting and colour.
