It was in the 90s and we were away in NC. So splashing water on a person wasn't a horrible idea =)
I started out having my wife throwing a cup of water on e me; trying to time it perfectly. After many attempts, nothing that I liked. THen I tried being the same with my very coorperative daughter. THen I came up with this which gave me more control and didn't rely on timing ... THis ended up being the choice of my team - apparently they made a good one! =)

Fun word play and a really good shot to match. The effect from almost no spray on the left side to all the great little spots of bokeh on the right, adds the bit of sparkle.

I'm surprised that this wonderful Selfie didn't make it higher in the line-up, Tate.

I love this.

Hope you didn't get an ear ache!

Funny how there are three photos in a row with an instrument pointed to their right ear - weird!

Your grand score was worth all the splashing about, Tate.
It's a fun picture. Glad it finished nicely.
