Recently, I signed-up to join Blissfully Domestic’s Summer Fun Photo Challenge where Angela England hosts a different photo challenge topic during each week of the summer. Results are posted on Fridays.
Week One’s task was to photograph Water, and the topic is open to any interpretation.
So the other day, I hopped over to the pool, iPhone in-hand.
No doubt, folks thought I was a bit looney as I waded into four feet of pool water with my iPhone.
Regardless, I managed to keep my iPhone safe from the dangerous waters!
And, people at the pool thought I was even nuttier, probably quite narcissistic, as I spent the afternoon in the water taking pictures of my own hands and feet.
Okay, okay… so I got a little help from my husband taking the photo of my two hands (after all, I couldn’t push the button). However, it was frustrating because he couldn’t see what I saw, so, quickly the team photo tactic was abandoned.
One time, the life guard called out, “Are you trying to get a photo of your ring?” Ummm… not exactly…
And, I snapped a more shots of the pool.
Hummm… what to we have here? A crack in the stair?
Then, more shots of my legs. They looked cool.
Another quick look around to see what I missed…
Then, it was time to get out and hit the pool deck.
All in all, it had been a lovely day at the pool, don’t you think?
The topic for next week’s Summer Fun Photo Challenge is Technology… not in my comfort zone, for sure!

I love your toes with their bright paint echoed by the colorful umbrellas and I love the shadow-on-the-water photo! Great day at the pool it looks like. (also – my husband never sees what I see with the camera either. hehehehe)

Angela, thank you for your comment. The standing shadow photo may be my favorite as well. I too, was loving the look of painted red nail polish with red umbrellas. In fact, I’ve been wanting to try making photos like this for years. However, capturing the images I had in my head proved more difficult than I’d imagined; remarkably, there is quite a bit of current in the pool and it was hard to keep my body parts still in the photo frame! I may have to mortify the other pool-goers one more time as I try again…

Thank you Erica. The legs/umbrellas photo is THE image that’s been in my head for years, and it turned out to be the most difficult to capture… My legs kept slipping sideways! I’m thinking: redo, redo, redo!
