These junior lifeguards are lining up for a run on the beach in San Clemente, CA. I love the kid with the shades near the front of the pack.

Awesome picture. Hope you are enjoying a lot with the kids.. keep us posted about the winner :)

OK, is this a joke? Or some sort of test to see if people will say "Fantastic shot" about any photo? Is one of those kids related to you?

If not, I don't get it. That is a fun vacation photo if the event had some sort of personal significance, but as a standalone photo it's...not so great. Certainly not something I'd expect to see on the website of someone who is otherwise so good at making photographs.

Oh please... I like the photo, the various expressions on the kids' faces, and the fact that these little guys are lifeguards in training. If you don't like the shot, no problem. Maybe the next post will better suit your taste. It's a blog. It's an ongoing chronicle of a photographer's life.

Sorry, the last post reads tackier than I intended. It just strikes me as very different than your usual stuff.

Thanks for the blog and the podcast.

Well I like the photo.
