Movement. How do you show movement in your photos? This photo choice is a very deliberate show of movement through the camera lens and the blurring lights, but how else can you show movement of objects, or of the action that’s happening in your picture?
This week’s theme kind of made me giggle. It’s been so hot here in Toronto that even the thought of movement sends many people into the shivery sweats 🙂 People are actively avoiding moving these days, so as a reminder to ourselves that summer is supposed to be filled with enjoyment and action, here’s a few photos to remind us:
I was fortunate to teach in Australia, and accompanied some of the students to a swim carnival – essentially a swimming competition between neighbouring schools. What better way to show movement than the committed actions of these wonderful swimmers?
As well, we recently celebrated Canada Day, and with that comes the excitement of FIREWORKS. I’ve always loved fireworks, and will travel for the best fireworks around … unless they are hosted by my friends Liz and Steve. Then, it’s an auto-attend. Steve puts on a great show in his own front yard, and the neighbours will come out to enjoy his efforts. Thanks, Steve, for making our Canada Day that bit more special each year.
Despite the heat, get out there and get moving!
