I took photos of the 13th annual Anchors Away Cardboard Boat Competition at Jury Pool on Tuesday. This is always a fun assignment to see if the physics students could create strong enough boats to maneuver in the water. Some were pretty good while others sank right away.
I thought I would get a different angle by standing at the end of the diving board. I was a little worried I may fall in but I guess that is the price you pay to get a cool shot. I didn't get wet! I liked the angle and lighting of the first shot. I also got a good reaction shot of a boat that sank right away. Good times!
