    WOW!! This is EXCELLENT Rhoufi :))

  • Thank you Di, it would have been nice to catch the finger just touching the water, but I was happy with this ‘panic’ shot.

    Nice one Rhoufi, good to see the child allowed out for a play!

  • Thank you Evelyn, oh I keep my eye out for the children emerging furtively from the serious adults all the time – there is always a good photograph in that, always.

    Bl@@dy ripper image my friend, Bravo!! :o)))

  • Thanks Elle, sorry for taking so long to reply. This guy really was easy to work with – I ‘felt’ he was going to do that as he walked past; still ended up a hurried shot though. Will be in your gallery soon to see what you’ve been up to.

    Did he cross the wall ?
    Or did the wall swallowed him ?
    Sweet instant for sure

  • He did something even better: he played with the wall, disarmed it and conquered it with no casualties. The power of the child in us, ah! Thank you Magali.

    Great shot! Looks like a cool wall.

  • It’s a way cool wall. A thin film of water flows over horizontal ripples in the concrete surface creating ever changing turbulence. The patterns are mesmerizing over the whole length of the wall. By changing the shutter speed you get all sorts of weird effects from sparkles to smeared light patterns. Thanks Cathy.

    Splendid capture Rhoufi, I think this is ‘the decisive moment’ and you’ve seized it masterfully

  • Thanks Georgie. It’s taken a while for me to get back. The unpredictable public make “decisive moments” my holy grail. People letting their childhood sense of play are a constant source of photographic joy for me.
