Submitted!


I submitted photos last year to the Army Photo Contest.  Nothing.  While I did have some photos make it to the “big” Army level, I did not earn any placement among the finalists.

It nearly passed me by this year (thank you, Soulmate, for reminding me of the event).  After two days of finding photos taken between October 2011 and NOW, I selected the following 19 photos for submission.  Included (not in the contest, but) within the collage below is my official watermark and a copyright notice.

Here’s hoping for more productive results this year!

Forgotten Insanity


This playground is in a strange between-region.  Because of its location, nobody goes there.  Except I did, today.  I might be the first person to visit this playground in 10 years.  As I walked through it, I could find no trace of human presence.  It felt apocalyptic.  And then, I heard the voice:

Oh, there you are!  It’s been so long!  Come here and let me give you a squeeze.  Would you like to swing?  Oh. . . I can fix that.  Slide?  Now where did I put that slide?  Don’t mind the mess; I was just about to clean up.  Where did the children go?  Oh, there you are!  It’s been so long!  Come here and let me give you a squeeze.  Would you like to swing?  Oh. . . I can fix that.  Slide?  Now where did I put it?  I’m getting frustrated!  Don’t mind the mess; I was just about to clean up.  Where did all the children go? It’s been so terribly long!  Come here and let me give you a squeeze.  Would you like to swing?  Oh. . . I can fix that.  Slide?  Now where did I put that?  Don’t mind the mess; it’s been here so long–I was just about to clean up.  Where did the children go? 

No. . . Don’t walk away!  Come back and stay.  And stay.  And stay.
