The Joys of the Water Slide – Design You Trust

The Joys of the Water Slide


Krista Long began snapping pics of people sliding down a water slide after many visits to the local water park with her tween daughters. “I set up my lawn chair to watch the entertainment as bodies shot one by one out the blue tube, suspended ever so briefly before crashing into the pool below,” Long told ABC News. “I started bringing my camera set to the highest shutter speed, hoping to freeze that moment in time just an instant before the plunge.” The result is an action-packed series of photos on Long’s Flickr page that show emotions ranging, she says, “from pure joy to fear, in anticipation of the inevitable splash-down!”
