And at a high speed!
Yes, it’s a thrill ride. Watching it from the ground with a 70-200 lens, you’re mesmerized.
You wonder why a person would want to get buckled in and subject oneself to the sensation.
Actually they look serene.
I would be screaming, I know.
Here’s a youtube post of the ride in action so you can get a better idea.
This past Tuesday I got down and knelt, used my 70-200 lens.
Tried to steady the camera. Get the shot.
Anticipating when to press the shutter button.
Freezing the action is a challenge.
Monday June 22nd at New Albany Ohio.
Coach Jeff gave Maura the DUCKS mascot to take care of until Tuesday practice!
I stopped at Exit 178- Cambridge and popped into the K-Mart to get a phone cord charger.
Saw these Cosmic Hula Hoops and bought 4 for the grandkids as I was on my way. Had a repeat light writing blog in mind as I drove the rest of the way to Columbus.
So four hula hoops, with blinking lights, plus four grandchildren willing to experiment with light equals a fun night photography effort
They helped Grandma capture a different kind of light writing in the backyard when it got dark outside.
I’d say the first day of retirement was a good one!
We used lightning sticks before which might have been easier to maneuver but not as bright.
All four at once. They were already in their jammies.

A few individual efforts and the group
We will try another night.
Thanks Susan for helping me get the job at Carrick and for sending me off at the finish. You and Ava were a big help to me, made it a nice ending with Origami paper flying around the parking lot, your catching it.
Thanks for taking my picture in the parking lot, all packed up and ready to pull out. Hooray. I couldn’t have done it without you.
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

The weekly photo challenge is Early Bird The golden hour BEFORE sunrise. This is just at the moment of sunrise on St. George Island State Park, Florida where I was visiting dear friends last summer. The last morning we were there we drove and then walked to the end of the Island. It was a beautiful sunrise.
Another early bird- in a tidal pool, not at the State Park but by the house where we were staying.
Knowing what I know now, I want to try the light writing with my grandchildren again.
