This photo was taken on a very rainy July day when my co-worker and I had planned to take the kids of the summer school program to see the fountains at Hastings Park. The rain was an unhappy surprise, but didn’t deter us.
The rain certainly didn’t stop the kids from having a great time, and since they were already wet, a little hands-on fountain exploration was no issue at all.
I like the textures in this photo. They aren’t deliberate, but came as a nice surprise. By this time next year I sincerely hope such important aspects as texture and contrast will be all deliberate.
