I'm far from being "old", but even in my early 30s, I can see a big difference in my energy level from that of, say, ten years ago. Take a look at the spunk possessed by the young adults in today's shots and I think you'll see what I mean ;)
Green room ACTION!
First up - Taylor''s shot from the green room of her high school theater in Cumming, Georgia. Based on her jovial jump, I would say the show was a huge hit!
Party like rock stars ACTION!
Next, we have Elsa's shot from Lyon, France. Looks like they had a rockin' night with festivity & friends!
Things that go jump in the night ACTION!
Wrapping it up with a shot from Carrie Elizabeth, taken in Columbia, South Carolina. Glad to see that trampolines can be fun at night, too!
Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone! Monday will be here before we know it (sigh), so enjoy the last of the weekend while you can :)

Ahhhhh...I got to sleep in, woke to the shinning sun and a freshly brewed pot of coffee (thanks, Jeff!). Me thinks it's going to be a good day! Now let's add a little action to the mix and make it even better :)
Jumpin' in the rain ACTION!
Check out the dedication of John's shot from Pisa, Italy. A little rain didn't stop him from embracing the jump!
We, the people ACTION!
And how much fun is this shot from Forsey Fotography, taken in front of the US Capitol in Washington DC?! Wonder if he was jumping for justice or jumping for joy...
Eiffel Tower ACTION!
Wrapping it up with Beth's shot in from of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. What a great shot to remember what looked to be a wonderful trip!
Off I go to little June bug's first birthday party at Little Monkey Bizness. Bet I get some good little kiddo action shots :)

Who's doing the TGIF dance today? I am! I am!! Put on those jumpin' shoes and get ready to spring into action :)
Who needs water ACTION!
First up, this shot from Ella, taken in the Kensington Market neighborhood of Toronto, Canada. She shows us that empty pools can be fun, too ;)

Running way late again, so let's cut to the chase (or jumps ;)...
Have a great one, peeps. See you on FRIDAY!!
Hey you guys ACTION!
Love this shot from Farrellvegan, taken at Cannon Beach, Oregon. I'm not sure if this is the actual beach from Goonies or not, but it sure does remind me of it (and now I'll be quoting line from the flick all day ;)
Just another brick in the wall ACTION!
And how much fun are these shots from Miguel, shot on the Great Wall of China?! Yet another place I'd love to visit in my lifetime...
Have a great one, peeps. See you on FRIDAY!!

Good morning, my action loving friends! I'm in a much better place today so we can get back to our regular, multi-feature posting :)
In the land of daisies ACTION!
This shot from Floortje, from Côtes-d'Armor in the Brittany region of France, leave me with a great big smile! The flowers, the tones, the happy little girl are all perfect!
Foggy fun ACTION!
And how cool is this shot from Ork de Rooij, taken in Oostzaan, The Netherlands?! A little rain & fog didn't stop them from capturing a fabulous jump!
Free flights ACTION!
And check out this awesome shot from Lioe, taken in Şereflikoçhisar in the Ankara province, Turkey. About the 3 happiest jumpers I ever did see!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Hump Day - half way to the weekend, woot!
Tuesday, February 23, 2010
Sorry guys - I'm WAY slow to motivate today, after what was an AWESOME Billy Joel/Elton John concert last night. The fact that I'm even out of bed is quite impressive! Now I'm just hoping today's shots will put a little fire under my ass ;)
Big blue sky ACTION!
Monday, February 22, 2010
It's well known that I'm normally NOT a Monday fan, but today is special and definitely deserves some celebrating :)
Woman in white ACTION!
First up - Sara's shot from Milan, Italy. I'm a big fan of the diptych shot, then throw in a lot of clean, crisp white and we've got a winner!
Pretty in purple ACTION!
Next, we have Rebeca's shot from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Reminds me of the little monkey song..."One little Rebeca, jumping on the bed..." :)
Wrappin' it up with Madeline's shot of pal Emily in Seattle, Washington. I sure love a girl who can multitask - action + wine = awesome!
Sooo, today is a magical Monday because today is the Elton John/Billy Joel concert (finally!). It was scheduled for back in November but got rescheduled so it's been a looooong wait. Sadly, Brooker can't make it back, as originally planned, but no doubt Colie, Annie, Ginny & I will rock it up for her! Hope everyone else has a great Monday, too :)
Sunday, February 21, 2010
You know how the saying goes...a family that JUMPS together, STAYS together :)
Take the plunge ACTION!
How much fun is this shot from Brent, taken on St. Kilda Beach in Dunedin, New Zealand?! In typical fashion, the adults look scared to death while the kids are having the time of their lives :) Want to see more of Brent's work? Check out his State of the Nation blog.
Jumping kind of day ACTION!
And speaking of fun, how about Chelon's shot of the Olsen family in Portland, Oregon?! I love how the different personalities burst through the picture :) Be sure to take a minute to check out more of her photo projects.

Have a great day, everyone! Enjoy a wonderful day of nothingness :)

Woke up to snow. Not enough to really count...but enough to make the drive into work miserable, no doubt. That means no dilly dallying this morning - we've got to cut right to the chase and celebrate FRIDAY :)
Jump on the furniture ACTION!
I instantly fell in love with this shot from Orange County, California, taken by Kristiano as he jumped his heart out on the lovely living room couch (much to wife's dismay, no doubt ;). Such a clever shot, wouldn't you agree? If you want to see more clever, check out his super cool 365 Project, too!
Now, think of me, as I'm sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic on I-25 in a few minutes...and I think of you all, enjoying this last day before the wonderful weekend arrives. TTFN :)

There is light at the end of this work week tunnel...that means it's time to celebrate!

It's been awhile since we've done a full post dedicated to kiddos...might as make today the day!
Yay...for beach days ACTION!

Hope everyone has a fantastic hump day! Half way there - hang in there :)
Tuesday, February 16, 2010
You'd think a long weekend would get me nice n' rested for the rest of the week. Not so much. Rather, it just makes me want MORE days off...give me an inch, I'll take a mile! Oh well, back to the grind I go, but not before a little action :)
Awesome art ACTION!
First up - Bernice's shot from the Hungarian National Gallery in Budapest. Being so close to so many amazing works of art would make me jump, too!
And then we have Tasha's shot from a rainy Vilnius, Lithuania. I love that she'll jump rain or shine - that's dedication!
Have a good one, peeps! See you tomorrow...
Monday, February 15, 2010
Sorry for the tardy post peeps! Thank you, George Washington, for being born & giving us a three day weekend (which means one more day to sleep in ;)
I'm up & at 'em now, though, and ready to flip the switch on today's bright light/big jump shots...

It's the weekend! And a long one for many of us US peeps - woot! Time to get out there celebrate!!

And we'll start with this jovial shot from Katja, taken in Erfurt, Germany. Everything about this pic exudes happiness, leaving me with a great big smile :)

And speaking of smiles, check out this shot from Daniel, taken in San Francisco, California. If this doesn't live up to the phrase "girls just want to have fun", then I don't know what does!
I sure hope everyone else is as excited for this weekend as I am - from the start of the Olympics, to dinner & a flick night with my man, to the simple yet wonderful option of sleeping in for 3 days straight - yep, it's going to be a good one :)
Thursday, February 11, 2010
I'm not a super creative girl, so I get really excited when I see others who are. It gives me inspiration to try something new, something like we see in today's shots...
Step by step ACTION!
Wednesday, February 10, 2010
Let's add some spice the the middle of this dull week, shall we? ;)
(...btw, if you find nearly nekid peeps jumping in the middle of beautiful nowhere offensive, then you should just come back tomorrow. Consider yourself warned.)
When in Bolivia ACTION! ...
...do as Alex did and snap these fabulous shots of a couple of impressively confident jumpers at the Uyuni Salt Flats. I think this may just take the cake!
And on that note - go have an impressive day of your own :)
