G'day *Carla*!

Firstly my heartiest congratz for the BP and 2nd Place Awards.

I bet you think this exciting photograph is about the boy. No, it is about LIFE.

The action, the joy, the excitement, the discovery, the sheer exuberance of Life is so strongly evident in this very well executed image. Great viewing.
