Spray park

We love our local spray park and try to go at least a few times before the big kids get out of school for the summer.

A2 likes to redirect the spray with his foot.

And, well, A1 likes to use another part of his body to redirect the spray!

Hey, fun photos aside (and me wondering if the water is clean, which I'm sure it is), I love the blog remodel!

I.

LH said...

Yes, VERY clean! The water is sprayed, completely drained, filtered and then resprayed. Now the Wild Rivers water, which remains stationary/stagnant...so gross with debris.

LH said...

Oh, and thx re: remodel. I'd been meaning to widen it for some time, but got lazy. It's changed what I post. Before, I could only show close-up shots because you couldn't see their expressions in those tiny 400px-wide pix. Now, my focal length is a little more varied.

You Kobayashi Maru'd your blog!

I find it peculiar that the Blogger center columns are so narrow. I really did get tired of playing by the rules.

Ivan Chan Studio said...

I wonder if it's a reading comfortability thing--like a blog is more like a newspaper column than a magazine, so that's why it's so narrow by default.

LH said...

And side columns more important for ad revenue?

Ivan Chan Studio said...

Oh, that makes sense, too. I was still thinking of blogs as public journals--before they got all monetized and stuff.

LH said...

Blogger wouldn't benefit from public journals (but would benefit from a cut of advertising clicks) so I can't imagine that they would put out such a service with the expectation of getting nothing in return. I bet they always had monetizing in mind. Like FB, right? Speaking of which, I hate targeted ads as much as I love the concept behind them...pilfering info from our profiles to position chosen ad. Genius. Evil genius.

Ivan Chan Studio said...

Yeah, I hear ya. Reminds me of Minority Report, where customers would have targeted ads holographically projected at them as they entered a mall--because a computer was scanning their retinas and able to find out their shopping interests/patterns.

It makes sense that Blogger had something in mind--funny how advertising in the hopes of catching a customer can propel an industry that may not be about advertising. The pairing is interesting to me for some reason.

Funny how the Internet is fueled by getting people to browse the Internet...

It's like the Internet is all existential-like.

Meta-Net!
