Ideas and Imagery #129

Well I thought I was over my hiatus from writing blog articles and sharing photos, but it seems that I needed a bit more time yet.  I've been pretty prolific these past few months between personal and work goals, it has been one of the craziest periods of my life in recent memory.  I have been wanting to share this photo for a while, but am just getting to it now, almost a year to the day of taking it.

At a birthday party, we had the opportunity to relive a bit of childhood memories and play under the big parachute.  I was originally stuck on the outside taking pictures when after playing outside the parachute, the people in charge took everyone underneath leaving me outside.

I stood there for a few moments, and took a few shots of this bubbled up parachute full of screaming preschoolers.  I wasn't sure if I could get in, but found a spot and was amazed at how cool it was underneath.  I alternated between flash and silhouette, but this photo really captured what it was like.  I love how basic the colors are.  These lanes of primary colors begin at the bright vent spot and lead you down to each silhouette.

Kids and adults were running back and forth at the command of the game masters, and everyone was having a great time, including me enjoying the scene and capturing it.  You never know what you are going to encounter when you walk out your door.  I sure didn't expect this to happen, but I was glad I had my camera!
