Picture This #189 ~ A Moving Moment



I found some photos that seem to fit with this theme. I photographed these kids playing hockey on a frozen pond a few winters ago. I happened to be driving by and saw them on the ice. I wasn't intrusive.


We went to an aquarium and I spotted these jelly fish swimming in this tank. Their movements intrigued me. They seemed to be dancing. Usually we only see jellyfish washed up on shore.
This photo was taken at Logan Circle in Philadelphia. The dog jumped into the fountain and his master was scooping water in his hands and throwing it at him. The dog was catching the water droplets.

  2. Indeed it demands a lot of movement to shift all that snow.

    Poetry in motion as the song goes.

    Terrific shot of the jumping dog.

  4. Hi Robert!! Three excellent takes for the theme. Good action-capture of the hockey-players. Very good shot of the jellyfish!! It can be so difficult to get a good shot through glass and water. Wonderful shot of the dog playing in the fountain :-))

    1. Yes, Mitch, it is difficult to get a good shot through glass and water. The setting was perfect because it was in a darkened area. Thanks for your comments.

  9. Marvelous. I too see jellyfish washed up on shore and it is wonderful to see them alive in such a great shot. And your dog looks so happy! It's delightful to see what dogs will do with water.
