Have a good week - and if you are taking children to school make sure you shut the school gates!!!
For those of you who are concerned that children were in danger in the taking of this photo, it is actually a gate within the playground
Great shadows and textures, and I love the title and description.
Wonderful shadows, Helen. Carol

Love the textures and shadows Helen.
Great image,well done,
There was never a school gate built Helen,that kept me in the playground !!
Good strong shadow.
I see notices on houses locally, Never mind the dog, beware of the children!
My kind of photo Helen. Good shadow patterns which tell a story.
Dynamic diagonals and great textures makes a lovely shadow image, Helen.
Yes! A fence and gate with steps!
Excellent comp. Helen.
Nicely composed Helen
Super shadow and good against that naturally textured base.
And further to your tip about bees not being able to see red, I stocked my garden over the weekend with lots of yellow, white and orange flowers just in case they come.
Clever lines and textures here Helen - I like the strong diagonals too!
quite like it (also the title...)
love the title Helen - and perfect composition!
Great lines, textures, and creativity throughout.
Excellent shadow capture, love the texture of the ground and the tint.
Beautifully captured shadow, Helen
great use of shadows
Great shadows-- Excellent choice of crop and comp. (diagonal)
A great abstract pattern pic, Helen, helped by the sun coming out to play, of course....
Great comp, light/shadows and textures.
An excellent composition Helen.
A fine observational piece Helen - good strong shadows.
An excellent 'found' abstract Helen.
Very nice diagonal composition and great texture and detail.
You obviously didn't see the one in the top left-hand corner.
Love the textures
You're so observant and so good at capturing shadows, Helen.
Great shadow formation Helen. Well spotted indeed.
Super shadows & texturing.. Great image
Gated communities, gated playgrounds...what is the world coming too!
Oh, very concrete!
Brilliant shadow detail & texture Helen.
the well cracked concrete as the backdrop to the strong shadows works well
Thanks everyone for your comments
I like this a lot. Interesting split tone kind of look. Lovely textures and great counterpoint with the rounded ends of the railings and that solid square block of the latch.....and a fine diagonal comp. Could you get some texture in the the topleft triangle? Anyways...well seen and well done.
Interesting suggestion Phil.
Its strange - its a straight photo and my eye didn't see the need for adding a texture, because I know that its a plant box - but when its a digitally manipulated image I seem to work for hours on getting it right
I'm so pleased that you mentioned it because it had not struck me at all
