Archive photo of the day: Daniel!

(80) Daniel!, a photo by The Bacher Family on Flickr.
This is one of my favorite photos of Daniel. On the 3rd of July a few years ago, Daniel and I were outside playing with a magnifying glass, and I demonstrated how to focus the light from the sun to burn holes in a piece of newspaper. Daniel was fascinated by this, and when we were done, he took the piece of newsprint, attached a piece of yarn to it, and made it into a nametag. He wore it that evening as we waited for the local fireworks show to begin. He was proud to show it off for a photo, and the evening light was just perfect. I love the way the light and the shallow depth of field makes the image look three dimensional.
