I’m shy. Yeah, don’t laugh. I don’t ask people to pose. Only occasionally. As in hardly ever at all. Ever! The kids would have a sleepover periodically. This time it was a pool party. It was our habit to make a challenging stack of rafts, climb on top, and then accidentally on purpose fall off. After all it is a pool! Stability was never an issue. But on this one occasion and in this one single shot, I got a keeper. It was hidden away this many years. I don’t think I could have posed it better. Everyone looks good. The composition is good. Wow, I’m better than I think sometimes.
The whole purpose of this exercise is to stay on it. It’s like a bucking bronco. You last for a mere few seconds. More than one cannot coordinate the delicate balancing act… even if you know them like good friends. The splash is worth a thousand laughs for all.
