Jack

February 07, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I coach a Year 5 footy (Aussie Rules) team. One particular Sunday it was hammering with rain and the ground was super muddy. I normally don't have my camera as coaching duties need to take precedence. However I needed some shots for the monthly newsletter, so had it with me this day.

We got beaten quite badly, but nothing like a mere loss will stop children from having fun. Not long after the final siren, and the 'This builds resilience' speech (which I seem to have given a fair bit this season) the boys started flinging mud at each-other.. and me.

After the mud-fight, Jack went and washed his face - still buzzing from the fun. When he emerged back outside, I called to him, with the camera already focussed on his face. Before he realised I was taking a photo, I had pressed the shutter - capturing the natural expression of joy only a mud-fight can bring to a 10 year old boy.

This photo was selected as a runner-up in the Australian Photography Magazine Mono competition in 2014
