After the season


It’s pretty quiet at the soccer complex this time of the year, between seasons.

There were several rabbits, some birds, a toad, and (literally) a snake in the grass. But no soccer players or soccer coaches or soccer moms. Just the wildlife and me and distant storm clouds.

As a warning to anyone who might be considering a visit out here: the far end of the bottom bench has become un-welded from the frame so if you sit down on it, down is how you’ll keep going for longer than you might expect. (Want to guess how I know?!)

  1. I like all those lines pointing to the storm clouds. And thanks for doing your civic duty regarding the bench. Let’s hope all the soccer moms in the area are reading this.


    • Sorry it took me a couple of days to get back to you on this. I was looking through my stats to get an idea of how many soccer moms read the blog.

      Based on my calculations, it appears that soccer moms make up somewhere in the neighborhood of 0.00% of my regular readership. Too bad for them, come soccer season. I did my part, anyway.


  2. One would expect that nice new benches like this would not contain booby traps, nor traps for unwary photographers.
    One of the light standards seems to be suffering under the weight of the lights. Perhaps not a good place to stand or sit, beneath it.


  3. I love this photo! ❤
