I took this photo just moments ago, holding our breath, wondering at the wobbly bubbly colours, trying not to giggle and make it pop.
We were trying to squeeze in as many different tricks and experiments as we could imagine, squeeze out as much fun and laughter as possible, before the itchy gloves became too overwhelming. Sometimes the simplest thing – the purity of a laugh from someone momentarily untroubled – is magic.
I posted it to Instagram and then almost immediately got an email notification that this week’s WordPress photo challenge was: “Magic”.
This is the week that I planned to first take part.
I don’t think I have ever experienced such a lovely moment of serendipity.
