I love how the framing on the "pushing duty" shot almost makes it look at first like there's only cables on one side of the swing.

You'd never see a swing like that here. Too unsafe.

Heh, yeah this place was insanely unsafe. They even had a wheelchair swing, which I've never seen before.

I'm glad to see common sense override political correctness though.

Wonderful pictures :D

Good to put faces to names, too :D

Glad you like them!

And glad it puts some names to faces also :-)
