No kids down the slide? I would! I'll have to check out our neighborhood playset . . .

Maybe they could use a sled?

Kids here in Alabama would definitely slide down this slide! Glorious black and white photo.

Don't count on it! A great slay ride. Nonetheless, a
beautiful shot with the shadows and the light in the clouds. Thanks for visiting.

the monochrome is perfect for the day we are having and a great contrast to yesterday's sun.

We have plenty of slide but no snow. It is positively deadly.
Nice picture.

Boy what a nice picture this is. The slide is a little bit new looking but the slide in winter used to be something we used when I had to walk to that schoolhouse in the country. Hard to imagine as cold as it seems now but there were times when kids when down with a huge pile of snow out in front of them.

Until an adventurous kid discovers his (or her sled fits). Could even be a miniature ski jump (just to scare the parents of course).

Excellent photo. Really captures winter.

I only come here for the snow, you know that!

I've never seen snow fall, perhaps a trip round your way in winter will fix that!

I love the curvy shapes snow makes ... and reminds me of the contrast with our land when you compare it with slide I tooka while ago.

Whoooooh! I think I'd try it. I LOVE this photo. The slide made an unexpected foreground and the snow looks so soft! Very nice shapes and contrast, too.

Steffe said...

I think the kid should give it a go despite the snow.

B SQUARED said...

It actually looks like a great time for kids to use it.

Love this one, the way the snow has pooled at the bottom like a ribbon.

My kids would have tried going down that, for sure.

:) I remember when I was a kid that I used to like stepping on fresh snow. Beautiful shot, looks like a Hallmark Christmas card.
