Oh, summer. This one has been so hot. I want to be enjoying it. I remember bundling up the kids in the winter to go out for a fewer minutes than it took to get bundled and I think, “Enjoy this.” But, most of the time, I’m wiping sweat off my baby or me and not enjoying it.
I do love the water though. It’s a wonderful, changeable subject. And we’re out playing in it every day.
One of the unexpected benefits of my 100 mm lens is that I don’t need to get as close to the water to get a picture of it. I have had to protect the camera from an errant spray or two but mostly it makes water photos easier.
A photo like this calls for a fast shutter speed (1/1250) and a lot of failures. Fortunately, my boy was so happy to have the hose on that he hardly noticed me.
