Jump!

Sonny Orifano, 10, has fun jumping on a trampoline in the front yard of his cousin’s house on Alpine Avenue in Stockton. (Camera: Nikon D300. Lens: Nikkor 17-35mm @ 17. Exposure: 1/320 sec., @ f/16, w/fill flash. ISO: 200)

Every kid loves a trampoline. It might be the feeling of soaring through the air, but nothing is quite as joyous as bouncing on one.

I saw this one in front of Jayde Garcia’s house on Alpine Street in Stockton. There were a number of kids jumping on it. I stayed there a while until the numbers dwindled down to just a few. It tends to be easier to get a great shot by isolating one or maybe a few people rather than having a jumble of people.
