Blast Off!

Blast Off

There was a lot of things to see and do at the Science Center last week end.  This water rocket made from a 2-liter plastic bottle was a big hit with the kids on the sidewalk.

My shutter speed was 1/2500 and I was shooting at the maximum frame rate of 8.5 frames per second.  I began shooting prior to blast off, but the rocket was almost out of site in the first frame … tremendous acceleration.   So fast, the kids can’t follow it.

Several frames later, most of the adults have tracked down the rocket, but only one little girl, wearing a green shirt, and the boy on the left end have caught on.   The rest are still clueless.

Thought for the Day:  I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don’t hurt.
