    Those shots brought a smile to my face. He looks so happy. In the second and third he looks so fearless.

    Happy photos. Top notch use of that lens and camera.

    Love the third shot - just enough of the face showing to see that he's fearless. Everything else speaks ... freedom? Not-a-care-in-the-world-ness? I miss childhood. :biggrin:

    If he jumped in once, he jumped in 50 times that day!

    I tried deliberatly to do a belly-flop once a couple of days ago and somehow managed to come out with a bright red chest and my neck that felt like I should be in brace!!!

    Ah youth ...

    Very nice. Bringing me back to my childhood. Oh, wait, I just did a bellyflop last weekend. So I guess I'm still a kid?

    Again, very nice shots.
