Sophomore splash

"Jamison King, 15, sophomore at Lone Peak High School, is doused by a bucket of water during the Sophomore Splash at Lone Peak High School, Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2009. New students were welcomed by meeting other peers as they participated in activities, such as: water balloon fights, kickball, slip-n-slide, and a dunk tank."

I love water. I love water especially when it's hot. I really love water when I get to photograph anything related to it.

Every year Lone Peak High School in Utah features a fun back-to-school event called Sophomore Splash.

New students were welcomed by meeting other peers as they participated in activities, such as: water balloon fights, kickball, slip-n-slide, and a dunk tank.

Needless to say, I came prepared with plastic bags for the cameras.

But once they got started with their antics, I thought I could get away without getting too wet. Sure, I was catching some over spray from water balloons, slides, but nothing extreme.

Well, I thought I was safe until I felt something sting my back. Yep. One of the kids decided to pelt the photographer in the back. I was drenched.

At first I was really pissed, I was dressed decently and had other assignments afterward. But I realized that as long as the camera stayed dry, I was happy.

After that, I continued to get wet and glad I did. I had a lot more fun that way.
