Family Photo

        This picture is of my family on our vacation this past summer. It is important to me because it was my first vacation since my parents divorce. Not having my mom there with me was very different.
         We were tired from a long day at the amusement park and decided to take a break and sit down on the bench. My neighbors had gone the same day as us and she said "let me take a picture this would make a good family picture". The photo focuses on the people that are in the picture rather than what is going on outside. Inside the picture is my dad, my two brothers, and me. It was a scorching hot day so we were in shorts, and a light colored shirt. Walking sneakers were a must. All of our hands are visible except my dads, he has them resting on the back of the bench. Our whole body's can be seen. My dad has sunglasses on the top of his head and there is a bag at his feet. In the background you can see fences, posts, rocks, some buildings, and trees. There is part of a flag pole towards the middle of the picture. If you look closely there are train tracks behind where we are sitting. The grass is green, the flowers are bloomed and the sun is gleaming down on the ground. We are all looking towards the left. My older brother and I are smiling while my dad and younger brother are half smiling.
        The picture was taken so my family and I were the main focus. Outside of the picture there were many people walking. Roller coasters and a water park are all around us but not seen in the picture. Other benches were to the left and right of us. Some places to eat were in front of us. The train is not visible. The picture is cropped  leaving out the sky, the flag, and top half of trees.
