Playland #5

Named for an historic amusement park in Rye NY, Playland is the place where I spent many magic hours. Playland #5 portrays the excitement of entering the park and exploring the midway – turning an ordinary day into a best-ever day with all the fun that awaits. It’s about deciding which rides and what games, about friendship, first kisses, and laughter.
