    It's a great idea, I did a similar one with my daughter. I held her arms and spun while my wife held the camera against my chest and fired away...

    Definitely want to try it again soon though...

    Sorry for the delay, been a very busy weekend ne_nau.gif

    First of all, I loved all the entries. There were definitely a few that brought back memories of my joys as a kid, and one's that reminded me of my own son and his joys.

    Because of this, that is how I decided which one for the winner. There were two that really stood out for me because of my greatest joy as a child...which was always being with my best friend. So the two it came down too were:

    1. By AirThom
    486460411_NBtTr-L.jpg



    2. By AaronNelson
    524542482_UL4tf-L.jpg


    It was a tough choice for me between these, but came down to the joys of having that best friend (or relative) to share in yet another joy...sports. So the winner is AirThom: Congrats!!!!

    Thanks, thumb.gif I'll have to try that. I love both yours and PaulThomasMcKee's images... I just need to work out how to get the camera angle such that it looks like its coming from the swinger... as in PaulThomasMcKee's. Could be interesting, since my hubby's a full 12 inches taller than I. Maybe I'll have to do the swinging! Then again I did a shot of a family on a merry go round that I love, but it made me dizzy then... and still does, just thinking about it!. I might have to pop a dramamine first! Cheers!

    I'm glad you liked it...Here's the "Making Of" thread if you're interested.

    Your merry go round shot is fantastic! I love the expressions on everyone's faces! Especially the littlest one. rolleyes1.gif How did you fasten down your camera?

    Thanks! :D

    Looks like you guys had fun making the shot... I'll tuck that away for future fun with the boys.

    For the merry go round shot - I was just hand holding... but I was tucked in tightly (legs somehow entwined) with the merry go round itself, hunkered down, and if I recall, I had one or both arms (left I'm guessing by the camera angle), hooked over the bars. It was surprisingly stable... and I didn't notice the vertigo at all until I was done shooting and got off the structure. Then... :sick
