Obsession or Compulsion?

So, I think I have a problem. We went to the Coast this weekend for a little ward camp-out. It was a great weekend filled with girl talk, long drives, s'mores, hot dogs, thumbs, bon fires, moonlit beaches, shooting stars, campfire songs, freezing cold feet, beach ultimate frisbee, and gingerly wading in the mighty pacific. But, the thing I wanted to do most in the world was take jumping pictures. And so I did. And, I think I might have gotten a few other people hooked too. All day, I would spy people taking jumping pictures in various places on the beach. Here are a few of our shots.

Prior to this weekend, the most people I had tried to get in a jumping picture at a time was 5. That number has increased exponentially. Turns out, jumping pictures with a lot of people are a lot harder to capture...but have some fantastically funny results.
Ready...Set...

The timing was a little tough


I have three favorite parts of this picture:

1. Kevin (guy in the black shirt on the left)

2. K-dawg (guy in the blue standing there looking confused)

3. Sally's balarina pose (on the far right)

This was the best we were ever able to do as a group of 12

I'm afraid of my own hops!

Kaydi and I are pros :)

This guy proved to be the best jumping picture photographer.

Turns out he's not bad at jumping either!

There might have been a thumb mistaken for a marshmallow. Maybe...

I hate how cameras have a delay in taking pics. Love it! It makes me want to jump and there are no cameras around, I am at work and it is 3:40 in the morning!

LOL... I wanted to post a comment about the reference to thumbs too. I see I was beaten to the point. Dang you Courtney!
