Friday Photo: Backyard badminton, summer sunset

Summer 2007

Summer 2007

Growing up, almost evening was spent playing in the backyard and watching the sun set before we were called inside to take our daily bath and scrub off our grass-stained feet.  I used to marvel about being able to play until 9 PM or later and having to take a bath each night as opposed to only after milking and before church, as it was in winter evenings.

As we grew older, a badminton set replaced the sandbox, and my siblings loved getting into heated matches. This photo is my brother Jordan as he prepares for a shot against my brother Chris, preparing to battle it out until the lack of light would make us call it quits.

I love the colors, the silhouette, and the texture of this shot.
