In my personal life I tend to take a LOT of photos of my kids. How could I not? They’re always around and often make great subjects when they’re willing.
A few months ago I decided to submit some of shots to the City of Kamloops for their annual calendar. Their theme was along the lines of activity and healthy living so I wanted to pick out some shots accordingly. Not surprisingly there were a lot of photos of the kids to go through. One of my all-time favourites and an obvious candidate for submission was this one of my oldest son splashing around in a wading pool. His face and the active water from kids playing nearby really makes this shot. I think it will be a great keepsake for years to come. I’m still not sure what he thinks of it, especially after I told him that everyone in Kamloops will see it. I haven’t told him about the accompanying insert in the newpaper yet.
