You truly captured summer fun! Brings back fond memories of block parties when I was a kid. . . running through sprinklers, decorating our bikes with crepe paper, playing kickball in the street!

Love this image, Chris. Composition is amazing and it looks so painterly. It doesn't hurt that my daughter is in the photo, too :-) Thanks for sharing.

Just a lovely image. Freezes a moment that makes you think of summer in Oak Park is just about as good as it gets. Good going, Chris!
