It was one of my first [Hipstamatic] photos taken with my iPhone 5, so it was taken at the beginning of fall. It was, however, a warm, sunny day, so for Portland, it felt like it was still summer. The end of summer. Now, I love summer more than anything, so the end of summer is an incredibly bittersweet thing for me.

This was a randomized setting, and also since I shot it from the bench, it was somewhat blindly framed. I love how it turned out. I love the composition, black and white, and the action of the little girl playing. It LOOKS like a fun memory, and it was. I accidentally captured the magic of that day, and I will always remember how perfect it was when I see this photo. Oh, nostalgia.
