The Leap – Getting arty at the Island Bay fair

My challenge for today was to catch the idea of “motion” in an abstract sort of image.  This is a child leaping about in one of those bungy swing contraptions at a local street fair.   There was only a narrow angle of view where I could frame a shot to have just the child in it against the grey sky and not a messy background tangle of cords, struts, and the garish awnings of surrounding stalls.  I was very happy when there was a somersault in just the right place, and rather like the watercolour-painting look to the image.
