Arc of a Diver

Been a slow week for pics as you can tell by my lack of posts.  It's that time of year where the landscape is not that exciting and I've been pretty busy with other stuff.  But, last weekend my daughter, son, and I made time to make a trip to Madison Wisconsin to support my niece in her pursuit of the State Diving Championship. It's an event my daughter and I have attended before since this is the third trip to state, I believe, my niece, Kelsey, has made during her high school run.  She is a senior so she'll be doing her diving for a collegiate program somewhere after this.  While she didn't take home the gold, she did place higher than she ever had previously- 10th.  That's the 10th best diver in the state.  Pretty cool accomplishment that I know she has worked hard for.  I know for years I've heard her talk about having to be at the pool like 5:30 in the morning since that is the time setup for the team to practice.  Crazy.  But it's things like this that create a winner, which she is.  If I ever end up with a chest of gold medals, she will definitely get one.  Not just for being a great diver, but for being a great kid.
Tonight's ist shot is a composite of several shots of one of her dives.  Unfortunately, to create it, I used Photoshop and I am pretty much self teaching myself on the capabilities of Photoshop so it's not perfect.  If I waited for that, it would probably never get posted.  The second is her getting ready to dive with the judges looking on.

  1. She has beautiful form. She, and her family, must be very proud to see the result of so much hard work (and talent)!
