Long Ago Laughter Posted on December 29, 2012 by Sheila Creighton Posted in Art Tagged broken, City Orchards, deserted, London, Ontario, past, photography, slide, snow, swing, tree, winter 8 Comments A solitary tree swing moves in the breeze surrounded by a rusty slide, a collapsed picnic table and a broken swing set. The play area of City Orchards on Huron Street East in London evokes some sadness but also images of happier times. © Sheila Creighton 2012 Share this:ShareFacebookEmailTwitterPinterestLinkedInTumblrLike this:Like Loading...

Great title for this picture. At least the swing still looks serviceable.
And, Happy New Year Sheila – keep the great images coming!
thanks so much – yes I sat on it and it held me… ha ha. Happy New Year too 🙂
Oh the stories your photo could tell. Nice shot!
thank you joleen – I am sure there are all sorts of great stories from that place. a happy spot to visit and the kids can have fun while the parents shop. perhaps some image-inspired short stories would be a good idea.
I really like your take on this scene Sheila – in all ways! Oh yes, and I’m a sucker for swings 🙂
thanks e. it’s sad to see since I know it was such a great spot for locally grown fruit – right in the city.
