I helped my son and daughter-in-law out recently by staying at their house for a couple of days to take care of the kiddos while mom was attending her sister’s wedding in Hawaii and my son worked. My job was to get the kids to the bus and to pre-school and home again. On the last day my grandson had two field trips to go on and I was to accompany him on one of them. Great photo op –for sure.
And the fishing trip begins–we drove to a location near the beach–but still had to walk a block or two to get to the water. I have to say that the teachers were very creative in making the fishing poles with safety in mind for the kids. The poles were a thin reed–bamboo maybe. There was a length of fishing line attached to one end of the pole and to that like there was a bolt tied on as a weight and a bobber. The “hooks” were swivels which unhooked on one end–or some other safe gizmo. The lines were tapes to the poles, to be un-taped on location. Some never made it that far–they un-taped
This is Cole’s little sister, Cate. She found an abandoned pole, so she is trying her hand at casting. You can tell why the children had dummy hooks on their lines–saved alot of injuries from happening. Success! Oddly enough some of the kids felt tugs on their lines–they were sure they got a bite.
It was so fun just to see kids play and to play with them. I did wade a little myself–can’t resist getting wet. As I said earlier–I saturated the color then back it off of the skin by unstaurating it. I used LightRoom to process the images.
Thanks for stopping by.
