I have always been fond of “in the moment” photographs. There is something about catching youth’s innocence within their element. It was around 100 degrees this morning for the parade. Way too hot to enjoy it. Yet, these youngsters were not fazed by it at all. I remember a time when I wasn’t affected by the weather-seems so long ago now.
I shot this photo of my youngest (center) at the parade this morning. Beside her were two girls from Connecticut that she had befriended. one girl wore a pink skirt, the other blue. They were friendly and sweet. They told me they were “Irish twins”. I am now giggling at the thought. In front of them was an old rusted tractor that was put puttin’ by. My daughter took a break from waiting for candy to observe her shadow.
