Hulme Playground...there be monsters here....

This is in a kids playground in Hulme...no namby pamby swings for this lot......

Pop of fill flash(again),seem to use that a lot and starting to do some painting with flash over Christmas, could be a disaster or that other twin imposter.

Beautiful image, David, the colours are really great and seem to blend with the sky.
David Johnson: Its that Pop of fill flash that makes the difference, I seem to use it a lot with this low sun we have on (most) days

A friendly dinosaur! Looks like something from a Pixar movie. I rather like this!
David Johnson: Well as long as the kiddies think its a Pixar thing as well there'll be no lasting damage done then!
Now that is some kind of fierce dragon! Great capture - love all the subtle shades in the metal picking up the colours of the sky. (:o)
David Johnson: Thanks Ros, did one without some flash and I couldn't squeeze anything out that looked half decent.
I used to have to deal with complaints if a child got a bit of a splinter off a swing! Goodness knows what some of the cotton wool brigade would make of this! I like the picture by the way David
David Johnson: Didn't show the rest of this Bill, its a big snakey bit of metal that runs right across the play area...just right for tripping over!

Something you warn your children about ! Brilliant colors David.
David Johnson: Thanks Ferdi, yep it was the daylight/flash balance...I let the camera sort it out!

Wonderful sculpture David, your pop of flash gives it more attitude!
David Johnson: Thanks Chris, yeh the one without the flas was pants!
Great colours David, and just love the idea that this is in a children's playground.
David Johnson: Think I need to stick the one on of the 'Toddler Eater', s'over on flickr if you havn't seen it.
