Water Fun

Following on yesterday's Squirt Gun Water Fight, today Anthony and Josh had some water play on their own. They were out there for hours, but I stepped out just a bit to take pictures.

The picture above is from a game they played, where one sat in the car with his back to the faucet, and the other filled up and threw water at the first at unpredictable times. The one getting splashed would then yell “Hey, I felt something!”. Repeat ad infinitum, switching places occasionally....

After “going vertical”, Anthony tries to catch the water he just launched up. He didn't get much, but he was happy to have caught at least a bit...

I'd asked them to stand for the photo, and as they were there, the automatic sprinkler started to spray them from behind, and silliness ensued...

Anthony asked that I take a photo of him in a Star Wars Clone Trooper pose, so here it is:

Seeing Anthony pose for a shot, Josh wanted to do the same. He had a hard time lifting the heavy squirt gun, but here's his posed shot:

Wow, I *loved* the “Going Vertical Again” shot! Looks like those boys had a drenching good time.

Nice work!!! Beautiful color and great action shots. I wouldn’t have expected such crisp/sharp shots from the
Sigma 50-500. Very impressive from both the tool and the artist. Keep up the good work.
