An incredibly thought-provoking piece. Reminds me of childhood, and that wonderful moment in the spring where all your outdoor toys become visible again. Those worn companions of summer fun. The composition is very nicely done. It almost looks as though the ball is in a mouth. Like a dog refusing to drop a ball, who just wants to play. I like that you used black and white because it makes it seem like a faded memory. The only thing I find a little distracting is the blurred leaf in the upper right. But of course one can not control nature!
