...Jeux Sans Frontières...do you remember that summer games? many of the games have the water as principal element.
I took that image at the beginning of the U Bein Bridge, the 1,2 km long teak bridge across the shallow lake Taung Thaman , near Amarapura, township of Mandalay, just 20 km south of Mandalay city.
There was a dozen of children that playied.
It was noon or 1 p.m., there is a strong sun...and in that moment i should be come back child!
this picture is dedicated to AmiBe, 'cause he saw the U-Bein without water!
do you remember that 2 men?
the referees Guido Pancaldi e Gennaro Olivieri!

Hey ! nice shot Paolo, those kids have so much energy to spend. I like the dynamic of this picture, the colours are nice, like jade or emerald.

A superb daily life shot, with excellent color, sharpness, & lighting. I like the unusually shaped boat on the river. Well done!

Nice moment and nice photo. We can feel the entusiasme, or hapiness of those children playing in the water. Did you jump with them ??? You should. Thanks

Ciao Paolo and thank you for the dedicace !
Incredibile come l'acqua può montare !
very good shot, very dynamical.
You shot at the right time, felicitation.
Mmmmmm, the color of the water don't inspire me, I prefer the water of french polynesia... ;-)

Hi Paolo, I guess the future Olympians are trained here. It looks that this is a very attractive place for kids to show off their skills. It looks that they were having a good time there. A well seen and well captured picture.

Nice shot Paolo;
You really seemed to have captured the innocence of youth here. A time when we enjoyed the simple things in life...
paolino (1024) 2005-06-16 4:12
Bellissima composizione, Paolo. Il bambino che sta per tuffarsi da' movimento all'intero qiuadro.
Mistral (15402) 2005-11-01 7:13
Bella immagine di movimento colta al volo.
Mi domando se una cornice bianca avrebbe dato maggior enfasi all'immagine con uno stacco più netto rispetto al nero... Mah! (Questo solo perchè TE vuole il pelo nell'uovo, eh...) :-)
