I Love Summer
For me, the pleasure of summer includes taking my near-teenage daughters and their friends to the local water park, which happens to have a delightful high-speed waterslide. I set up my lawn chair to watch the entertainment as bodies of all shapes, sizes, and ages flung one by one out of the blue tunnel, suspended ever so briefly in mid air before crashing into the water below. I wanted to freeze each unique water droplet, body contortion and facial expression in anticipation of the inevitable splash-down. My images are intended to capture the essence of what it feels like to fully participate in the fun, carefree days of summer.
