Frozen Motion

Weekly Challenge by Jen Hooks is MOTION

As I scour a portion of my archives, I see lots of frozen motion.

Today’s post is the four grandchildren in various motion shots

Marlene helped me out with these diving trophy photos of the kids.  Thanks Mar. We’re all here in Ohio ready to celebrate Maura’s sixth birthday.

Jack is below with a photo holding a game ball as he missed out on the diving awards.

Michael (6) Airborne

Diving meet Monday afternoon.  I cannot tell you which dive this is or what the degree of difficulty is.

I like the pool’s reflected light on his skin.  His other grandmother is taping all of the diving competition for the Olympic Trials to inspire the 3 grandchildren who dive. They sure start them young!

It was a beautiful day and could even be called “chilly”. Michael received a ribbon for 3rd place in his age group.


Michael Jumps Off the Board into 12′

Saturday afternoon with the family .  We checked out the indoor pools, one a leisure pool with a lazy river.  Everyone had a good time.  How to ward off cabin fever? Enter the balmy Westerville Community Center pool. We skipped the climbing wall. Note the little drips of water off the back of his suit as he jumped. Mark took the two oldest back on Sunday afternoon.

Practicing my sports photography, stop action!
