So I was supposed to be watching the little one, but he was gallivanting about with his friend and they are both good boys. So I wasn't breathing down their necks; I was giving them the space to run round and be boys in the park. Of course, it is almost spring, and everyone knows that in spring a young man's fancy turns to.... the swing set! And so I hopped on the swing (In? On?). I had my camera with me, and I had the not-so-very-brilliant idea of taking a photo. Whilst swinging. And when I swing, I go as high up as I can get; my head higher than the top bar holding the chains. That poses a bit of a logistical problem, because letting go of the chains at that speed and height is a recipe for a tumble. In the end, I let go one hand and took the shot from my lap - those are my toes at the bottom of the photo, pulling toward the sky.
I tore my coat pocket on the dismount, but oddly enough I was in such a good mood that it didn't bother me at all. When I got home, I started disassembling the pieces so I could repair it and put it back together again.
