This photo was pure serendipity! Usually, I craft art portraits by setting up costumes and props and the perfect setting. This time I was in the right place at the right time while holding my camera. How often does that happen?? I had just finished photographing a group of 3 girls when I turned and saw the little brother just playing on the tire swing. The sun was getting low, and soft golden light was streaming through the branches. I gasped, then raised my camera and quickly took 5 or 6 pictures.
This photo just completely captured the essence of summer in the country! I gave the photo as a gift to his mother, and she was stunned! I love those unexpected bonuses in life. :-)
