SWING
AUGUST 26, 2010

A spontaneous picnic lunch at Emily Murphy Park.

The rest of the family grabbed lunch and then came by to pick me up.

After lunch, the kids wandered over to the playground. While they were playing on the slide, I wandered over to the swings.

I could see the shot right away: the chain from one swing in the foreground with the shadow from another in the background. I also knew with harsh midday sun that it would be black and white.

It took 4 tries with my iPhone to get just the right composition. The chain and shadow at the correct angles. The swing casting the shadow hidden behind the chain in the foreground.
