SPC - 'Black & White' - #2
Astute observers may notice that I have one wet pant leg here. We had lunch near a rocky stream and the kids were enjoying jumping around the boulders among the stream. I was helping the kids navigate across the trickier sections.
Harrison decided to use me and my arm as a repelling rope of sorts which had been OK the day before among similar terrain when I was wearing hiking boots and the boulders weren't quite as mossy. Unfortunately, this time the rocks were wet and mossy and I was wearing my chucks. Again, mostly OK, but one time he jumped out away from me when I wasn't expecting that and I lost my footing.
What you can't see in this photo is that my left hip was also soaked from when I fell and took a seat in the stream.
Could have been worse. I managed to save D90 which I had across my shoulder. I didn't have my camera bag with me at the time and I didn't have my iPod in my back pocket like I sometimes do. My wallet in my left front pocket got a little wet, but nothing that wouldn't dry. Both kids managed to stay mostly dry as well.
Pretty sure I wore my boots for all hiking/climbing activities the rest of the time. :-)
Here's a color version of the same shot:
Hopefully more vacation photos coming soon!
