Zoe hits the end of the water slide – we’ve had 40 degree days lately, so the grandchildren have been quite cooperative in providing me with some action practise!! A few PS adjustments made to compensate for some blowout.

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    A fantastic action capture with perfect timing and a great expression on Zoe’s face, Rosalie!!!

  • It took a few goes to get her at the right moment Phil!! My shutter finger needs to be quicker I suspect! Thanks for the kind words.

    Great action shot Rosalie. Wouldn’t mind being young enough to do this. In this heat anyway.

  • Go on Gail, out at your place no one would see!!
