Showjumpers

I travelled to the Philippines recently and will feature some shots from the trip in the coming posts.

 

This is a small uninhabited island off the Malajog beach in Calbayog area. The waters were clear and these two were having a go jumping off from these rocks into the waters. They would repeatedly climb up the rocks and plunge head first/feet first. When I indicated to them that I would like a few of their photos, they were only glad to comply. Their fearlessness and irrepressibility of spirit was a treat to watch.

As we get older we mess things up, don't we...thinking about careers, and stuff...
Ayush Basu: quite right you are. I should blow up this image and pin it to my desk at work.
Great capture and treatment Ayush, you've caught the moment really well - welcome back!
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind message Fred, good to be back
Nice fresh image that shows childhood at it's very best.
Ayush Basu: Yes, I miss that feeling when I could do just about any physical activity and not be scared whether my body is going to respond or not grin
The innocence of childhood Ayush, very nice.
Ayush Basu: You said it...
