Great photo. There is nothing more exhilarating than a swingset in the summer for a child. The feeling of swinging through the air in the bright light is a wonderful feeling

PERFECT illustration for..

The Swing
by Robert Louis Stevenson

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside--

Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown--
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down

Oh, perfect. Unencumbered childhood joy. I've been waiting for decades to see some kid flip one of these over the top bar.

This image has me smiling. I love the way this little boy has thrown his head back to get more height to his swinging. Fearless.
