Kiss Me

Kiss Me

A couple of abandoned bracelets left on the playground. I wonder which little child left their bracelets behind. The bracelets do seem to be declaring their need for a little affection.

Just like the previous post, this is a "found" shot at a playground. I didn't arrange any of the elements just chose an angle and composition for the shot. The brilliant colours were already there waiting for an appreciative eye.

The previous post also composed itself. I noticed a faded brown fallen leaf, high on a playground slide, and decided to take a shot. While composing the shot, a gust of wind flipped the leaf over and blew it to the bottom of the slide near the edge. The other side of the leaf revealed amber gold and copper colours, a vivid contrast with the orange and blue of the playground. I would not have thought to flip the leaf over to see if the other side was more colourful.

It's amazing, and also a little strange and wondrous, when these little bits of colour arrange themselves for anyone who might be there to see.

Very nicely taken. Sometimes if we pause to notice our surroundings we can find so much. Alas we are often too busy rushing from one place to another to stop and appreciate our surroundings.

excellent color saturation!
great lens you have there and you got a good eye for spotting these simple & yet beautiful things.

nice color-matching, the circles (big & small) complements each other as well.
