If a professional photographer had taken this picture, it would have been considered a mistake. A pro would have put the sun behind his subjects. No shadow, and no squinting. Collectors of old snapshots, however, don't see a picture like this as a mistake but as a great find. That shadow, cutting into the image, is a mystery that draws the eye. Perhaps professional photographers could learn something from all the amateurs out there who don't worry about the position of the sun.
