Capture the Moment

Ok call me crazy, but this year I volunteered to be the "official" photographer for my daughter's high school swim team. Uh yea, like I have nothing else to do. But since I have to be outside sweltering in the heat to watch her anyway, I thought, hey, this will be fun. I can get close to the water, get splashed occasionally, interact with the kids and generally have a grand time. And of course it's a great excuse to get a new camera lens! I am by no means a professional in any sense of the word, but for me, the funnest part is to

Capture the Moment

The intensity of effort

The emotion

The camradarie of the team

And then of course there's my kid too.(who happens to be a great swimmer-she qualified for the varsity team last year as a sophomore and went to State -ahem)
