Another picture from the roll taken on a visit to Barnards Farm in Essex, in the summer of 2019, with a charity that I volunteer with.


The owners land / garden is full of wonderful sculptures, with this being one that caught my eye. I did think about opening up the aperture wide, to blur the background, but it was just too sunny. But looking at it now, I like seeing the swing sculpture in it's own environment.


Also, it was printed on the new MGV paper, which is definitely different from MGIV, giving more depth to a picture, along with much darker shadow areas. A great paper indeed!

I enjoy the strength of the form of the sculpture, and the presentation of the object as a strong black in the shadow of the tree, against the bright background.

Agree with Graeme. It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing! :-)

Something different and could look a bit gruesome.
