Shadow Photographer

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.
