I'm a little late with this post, but I've been knee deep in processing photos from my daughter's recent synchro competitions over the last little while. This has been keeping me pretty busy and away from being online very much. I've had some 3,000+ photos to work my way through, and that's just the events my daughter was in! With a little bit of a break this weekend, I thought I would post a quick preview of a shot of her being flipped during her team routine.

Project52 – Caution: Synchro

This week's Project52 theme was 'Signs'. I took a number of photos throughout the week of various signs around town, but ultimately decided on this one that I took on the weekend while we were at my daughter's second synchro competition in as many weeks. I was hoping to catch a swimmer in a move similar to what was on the sign, but I guess they don't fall backwards very much. :)

Project52 – Splash

For this week's Project52 theme, 'Eyes', I chose this shot of my daughter swimming. She is a national level synchronized swimmer and had her first competition of the season this weekend. Of course, I was on-hand shooting a lot of the action and caught this one of her during her solo routine. She's doing a spin with her hand in the water, which creates the curtain of water as she goes. I'm glad I was able to catch it so that she can be seen peeking through a gap in the splash.

Friday's Photo – Synchro Height

The Canadian Open synchronized swimming national championships have come and gone and I'm happy and proud to report that my daughter's team claimed the Gold in their event! (and a few others :)

So continuing with that theme, here's another one of my favourite shots from the Provincials competition that seems so long ago now. Here are two of my daughter's teammates performing another routine. The rest of the team is underwater providing support and a 'launchpad'. The girl in the air was sent flying from standing on the shoulders of the one you see in the water. These shots are always a challenge to capture because you only get one chance and they occur in mere seconds. After almost 8 years of practice, I still miss a lot of these, but I'm glad I was able to catch this one!
