The Cool Down

What's better than a popsicle on a HOT day?
I had a hard time with this one. I has so many ideas!! I took pictures of our dinner cooking on the grill, my kids cooling off in the bath, and a bunch of popsicle eating kids! My chicken ones turned out good, but I didn't want to use them, My bathtub ones were, well, kids in the tub, and the popsicle ones were just plan messy. This one stood out to me because it wasn't just a shot of a kid eating a popsicle. (although I got a cute one of my boy) This brings me back to my childhood and eating lots, and lots of popsicles in one sitting. (which I can still do) They are an easy way to cool down on a hot summer day, or here in sunny AZ, a hot spring day. :)

I love how the popsicle is in crisp focus and everything else is faded into the background.

Good job!
