overgrown playground
I thought for the month of October in anticipation of Halloween, I would return to Pennhurst . abandoned asylum. I took all of these images with the HDR setting on my camera.
I value your comments.

Saisissant ce toboggan pris dans les branchages, avec une ambiance en contraste avec le beau ciel bleu à l'arrière. C'est très beau. Amitiés

As soon as it is free, nature reclaims its rights, it is always the strongest. Excellent composition and beautiful colors, a magnificent picture, I like a lot.
Have a good week.

A slide without children and shouts of joy is a sad element. But the picture is great dear friend! HUGS. Best, Adela

It seems to have been forgotten.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Whoa!! It looks like the playground has been taken over. A great network of branches that stand out against the sky. The next child to go down that slide will have to get a tetanus shot. :-)

The HDR definitely works so well on all these tiny branches. The branches also form a screen for the forgotten slide.

The overgrown playground and the slide covered with brush is such a symbol for the sadness of this place. I can hear the silence.

It's a good thing you mentioned it is an overgrown playground, I can make sense of the slide.
