Wow,you outdid yourself Jeff. Love the way you get into a challenge and take it to a new level. Looks like your kids had fun too. Where is Michelle? And You? #10699893

Very nice editing #10700262

Fantastic choice of subjects in this fun series, Jeff, and great work on the composites. Samantha has the most challenging backlighting that hides the details of her beautiful face. If I were her, I'd ask for a re-do and make sure no bars cover her face. Awesome work! Love getting the kids involved and I bet they had a ball! #10700344

Ok I am taking couple of my grandkids to the park.... these are awesome I love love the one of Pete. Looks like Becca did just find with her challenge. I agree Samantha needs a redo, her face is covered with the bar to many times. Job well done! #10700796

Thanks, everyone.

I'll have to see if I can get back out with Sami for a re-shoot. The funny part about that one is that Pete was actually in all of those images, they wanted to be in the same shot. It was too crowded, so I went with just Sami. I do have another series of the two of them on a different spot that I need to combine.

Becca's was funny. I had tried to get her involved with this a couple of times but she wanted nothing to do with it. With her disabilities, she doesn't do well with climbing and likes to have someone close by to help her balance. She wanted nothing to do with doing it on her own. Then she found these low monkey bars. She'd swing on the first one, let go, take a step forward to the second one, swing, let go, etc. She was excited to get her turn in the pictures. I haven't shown her the final image yet as she was in bed by the time I worked on it. #10700864

These are very nicely done Jeff - I bet the kids love them. I really like Becca on the bars, but all the shots are great. #10700928

Jeff E Jensen 5/20/2013 9:20:49 PM

Thanks, Mike!

Here's one more of the two big kids. This was a bit trickier with a couple of overlapping spots. #10701186

most fond of the one with Becca because of the story behind it! #10701610

Elaine Hessler 5/21/2013 4:23:14 PM

Love all of them. I think you should print these all out and hang them on a skinny wall, one on top of the other. So cute! I think my favorite is the first one-it reminds me of how high those jungle gyms used to feel as a kid. It is shocking how small they really are.

I bet you had a field day with your kids! #10702125

lisa anderson 5/21/2013 4:52:57 PM

These look so fun! My favourite is the one with the Pete on the tires, because his upside down head is so perfect :) #10702159

Jeff E Jensen 5/21/2013 9:51:22 PM

Thanks, ladies! #10702420

Peter W. Marks 5/23/2013 9:25:10 AM

It is great when other folk's fun can be our fun too, Jeff. And just so that no-one is confused, that is not this Pete it's the other Pete. lol #10703906

Beth Spencer 5/24/2013 5:16:59 AM
