Description :

Katie Scott spins on a swing in the backyard of No. 8 Victoria Road, Birkenhead.

Swings are popular playground equipment, and the backyard swing is even better. No waiting for a parent or older sibling to accompany you to the playground, but out the door to while away the time on your own swing: swinging high and then low, or as Katie is here, twisting around and around, then reversing the twist in a giddying spin.
