A girl and her little sister swinging in the evening with the sun setting in the backround which cast a nice shadow on the trees as well as the girl and her sister…The older sister stop just in time because the little sister ran right in front of her. I caught the dust from her shoes just as she stopped swinging. What I liked most about this shot was the angle of the trees as well as the shadows. What I didn’t like was the different colors cast on the shadows from the sun’s reflections.
I don’t know…let me know what you think…

    a beautiful, thoughtful look back in time … I love the dust kicked up by the playing children and the way the camera caught the light!!! You don’t like the colors caught by the camera?? I love it!!! I don’t know what a purest photographer would say … but to me it adds an extra magical dimension!!!

  • Thanks for your Inspiration Lois…That makes me feel really good about this capture.
