More skaters


More skaters at Bushnell Park's winter skating rink. I like the boy's open-mouthed joy at how fast he was going . . . that sweet face! . . . and the girl's hat and concentration!

Three excellent images, each one in its own way!

Your photos prove with any doubt that skating is "a real trip" for kids. So glad that it's provided for them and for bigger kids too. Any adults?

Kate said...

"without any doubt"...

The first shot is brilliant but I'm so glad she isn't texting and skating at the same time. That would have been a feat!

Three more fine portraits. I loved to skate when a kid. Not so much anymore. First of all I can't find any ice!

Played this morning. It was 36; and the the wind came up! Yowweee! All I can say is I broke 100. But it was hard!

Great shots Jack. The young ones expressions are a joy to see. I love that hat too.

Jack I take pictures on the way to work early in the morning because traffic is light and I can stop and step out of the car quickly. Finding parking during weekdays downtown is too much work for a photo.

Love the top one - short sleeves, gaping mouth, motion.

Loving these photos you took at night to the skating rink. Thanks, Jack, for bundling up and heading out. Your photos are filled with joy.
