I took this picture back in 1976 just outside of Wheeler Air Force Base in Hawaii. This was one of two pictures I snapped of the abandoned playground. I found this picture taped on one of my old high school folders. My favorite picture, the second shot... has long been destroyed. It was taken at a different angle and showed an old howizer (big gun!) just off to the left. I called the picture Lost Innocence because of the sadness I felt by the sight of a weapon of war in a broken down playground. I hope one day to come across the original negative for the pictures, they were the start of my passion for still photography.
