Abandoned swings

I'm not sure if I consider this a successful photo or rather what Mike Johnston calls a significant failure. What I do know is that I like to look at it, so here you are.

This was at Venice Beach, Los Angeles in November 1997 shortly before sunset, so obviously it was pretty dark outside already. That explains the silhouette-like look of the picture and that's what I like about it. And the geometrical pattern created by the palms and the swings. And the different shades of gray at the horizon.

Taken with (yawn) M4-P on Tri-X.

Addendum: This photo was shown in the Bronx Banter in April 2011.
