I came across this photo from Railways of Australia's Flickr set.
It's an old abandoned swing.
Or....it looks abandoned at least.
It looks spooky like something out of a nightmare scene from Nightmare on Elm Street.
I can picture a little girl sitting on it singing that song.
One Two Freddy's Coming For YouThree Four Better Lock The Door.....
The scenery would be great for a horror movie set.
Then again, it might also be a great happy place for happy children to play happily.
I guess it depends on the mood.
Is it a bright sunny day? Rainy and dreary? Foggy? Late at night.
All that makes a difference.
It's funny how you can look at things in such vastly different ways. When I first saw the photo and started writing the post, I saw something dark and sinister. Then a few minutes later I looked and imagined kids having a fun and safe time together.
Now that I look closely though....
The swing is pretty close to the ground; so maybe it wouldn't be THAT fun.
