Footpath at the back of houses in Cheadle Heath where I grew up. Fencing screens back gardens, but at this point there is no fence and the bushes are overgrown. At the end of the path used to be the cast iron railway footbridge nicknamed 'The Monkey Bridge' where I watched steam trains as a child.

It's interesting to return to places where you used to play as a child. Sometimes a particular house or object can spark off some long-forgotten memory. Many will agree this scene has a slightly eerie quality. Wouldn't it be great if you could return to scenes of your childhood and photograph yourself as a child? Looking down the path, what's that shape formed by the leaves to the right of the end of the fence? Looks like a small child. Actually it's just a shape randomly formed by the leaves. It only looks like a human figure on the smaller size image. An interesting trick of the light.
