A couple more travel atmospherics from Taegu in 53-54.

Hi Russ,

Was the girl in the air the recipient of the launch or the initiator?

Good question, Peter. I suspect she was a bit of both. She probably jumped a bit as the other kid came down on the board. What strikes me as I look at this is the fact that my timing was good enough to catch the kid in the air without blur. I know the shutter speed on the camera wasn't good enough to do that by itself, and I didn't use flash.

Hi Russ,
At least on my monitor, i see moire from the scan starting with the big sister's face. if that is actually in the image, you might be able to wet scan and remove it.
It is a very good scene.

Then your timing for stopping the action at it's peak was spot on. The girl stops in air(click) and then gravity does it's job.
I used that technique shooting jump balls in my high school days. The gyms were so dim, I had no other choice. If I remember correctly the exposure was 1/30 at f2.8 Tri-x. and probably pushed the development of the negative as well. The timing for those shots was everything. Almost a lost art.
