Lost Soccer Ball

G'day *MAXINE*!

Such a timely photograph with the Eorld Cup upon us and so reminicent of a famous American photographer, (whose name escapes me), who photographed a little tricycle in a driveway.
His shot was in colour but yours suits B&W to a T.
Great placement of the ball to ensure you included the swing seats as I feel a strong connection between them.
Your chosen depth of field was a masterstroke as it puts everything in context and makes this work a suburban statement not just a shot of a soccer ball in a park.
I wish this one well.

There is something so sad and lonely about an empty playground. Seeing this ball made it even sadder because I knew there was some disappointed child at home crying for that ball!
