Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Downhill Forward Roll Race

Our granddaughter turned six this week and had her birthday party at a local park.  One of the party games was a downhill forward roll race. The children were lined up at the top of a small slope and on the command “GO” they set off on their tumbling to the bottom.

This image was captured just as the race started. I love the way the three-year-old watches the tumblers with fascination and seeming active encouragement.
