Love this photo. The detail and clarity of subjects obviously in motion is fantastic!

I have this photo as my desktop picture because I just love to look at all the wonderful details. Also it reminds me of the many hours I spent pushing my own 3 children on swings during their childhood- and oftentimes swinging along with them! I find it interesting that the swings are just hung with open hooks; nowadays the hooks are closed and secure.

That is a wonderful photo! I love the crispness and clarity, and the fact that it isn't posed or a special occasion, just an ordinary day in the lives of ordinary people.
I noticed the open hooks too and thought that maybe they took the swings in at night. You would never see paving stones under the swings today.
