Photo of the Day: Family Day


Family Day, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
I snapped this photo at Northwest National Park Family Day in Seward Park, Seattle, at our Mount Rainier National Park booth. Sometimes I'm not sure why I like a photo so much, and that's the case with this one. Technically speaking, it has flaws, notably he blurred hand of the ranger in the left foreground; and yet, in some ways the flaws actually add to the image. The ranger's hand, and that of the girl on the right, add a sense of motion to the picture, which is balanced by the passive gaze of her sister in the upper left. The bright jacket pulls the eye to the main subject, and the look on her face is priceless. The lighting on the faces is amazingly good; it was a cloudy day, so everything was suffused with a soft light that looks very nice on the girls' faces. And in the end, my gut feeling is just that this is a good picture!
