Sometimes fun happens in full sun. It's far from ideal for picture taking- blown highlights, shadows under the eyes, mixed lighting from shaded areas, color casts, white balance... ahhh! While I sometimes wait to grab my camera for a better time/lighting opportunity (ie, I know the same thing will happen again in more favorable conditions), I never want to get where I fear snapshots & I miss catching the joy of these children's childhood! God blessed us with a lovely, warm & sunny afternoon and the children soaked it in:
