This photo was taken at Nathaniel Pope Elementary School, in the abandoned playground. This shot continues to remind me of how sad it is to see these schools boarded up and locked away. The empty lot was littered with broken bottles, used firecrackers, and plenty more trash. These abandoned schools are now becoming the neighborhood’s trash can.
This photo was shot across the street from Pope Elementary, at a playground in Douglas Park. She was enjoying the park with her older brother, who was pushing her on the swings. This shot is much, much more different than the one of the slide since her smiling face brings the photo joy and happiness, opposite of the other photo.
