Weekly Photo Challenge: Split second story

In this weeks, Weekly Photo challenge set by the Daily Post of WordPress

We are asked to:

Capture an image that tells a whole story in a single frame.

Here is the challenge if you wish to participate – Weekly Photo Challenge

Now I took this photo with my iPhone, so it’s rather grainy and not the best quality, but here is the story…

It was a lovely sunny weekend, I took to Richmond Park which is one of the Royal Parks to relax lying on the grass by the river whilst my kids played about.

Flickering in the corner of my eye I could see this flash of colour, up, down, up, down and eventually through being rather nosy I hoisted myself up to take a look.  I saw this young little girl in a beautiful floral dress running eagerly with her kite really trying to get it to stay up.  It came down, but she didn’t give up and went back to the start point again.  I guess it was her parents that were helping her on the side lines.

What is also interesting to me is that the Park is a Royal Park, which gives it a sense of wealth of course and the area has large pockets of affluence, the kite however skims past in the skies to almost caress the residential Council tower blocks, pockets of non-affluence where money is often tight.

The horizon in Richmond Park often tells a contrasting story in itself.
