The whistles blew and everyone got out of the pool due to lightning.   Time to go home.

Dear Followers, Readers, Friends and Family,


Thanks for all the lovely comments and emails. I appreciate the good words and your cheering me on.

It was fun to share celebrating the four year mark of the blog.  

I think my headline/title confused some people as I meant I was just starting the fifth year of blogging as the four year anniversary occurred.

xxooxx

Pool Party Evening Light

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The setting sun and the lights coming up from the pool made an interesting contrast of color and light.  The photograph has limitations in illustrating the mood.

 

 

 


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!


How You Feel After You Go Off the Diving Board for the First Time

Five years old next month, Michael's face sums it up!


How to Put on a Swim Cap Before Your Event

Experimenting with the settings on the camera from across the pool.  The swimmers have to wet the cap before putting it on! Caught the cascade of pool water with a 70-200 L series lens(Canon). Converted to black and white as the color was a distraction from the water splashing.

The swim cap held a lot of water.
