Photo of the Day: The Call

The Call by The Bacher Family
The Call, a photo by The Bacher Family on Flickr.
For her piano recital, Rachel (seated) chose a piece of music called "The Call," from the movie "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian." Trouble was, it didn't sound very exciting purely as a piano piece. So she convinced her older sister Megan to sing the vocal part, and they made fantastic music together!

I like the way this photo came out both because of the story behind it, and also because of the wonderful contrast between the two sisters: Megan, in black boots and red hair falling into her face, and Rachel, in a skirt and bare feet with her hair pulled back in tight braids. My own sons are just such a study in contrasts, and yet equally devoted to each other (when they're not driving each other crazy).

Update: Here's another version of the photo, with Mrs. Phipps edited out from behind Rachel. My apologies to her, but she's barely visible anyway, and to me, the image is stronger with just the two sisters. What do you think?
