Leap towards the sky...

While visiting an impoverished village in the Philippines, I was invited to hang out with the local kids at a muddy drain pool. They don't have much in terms of material possessions. But they sure can have fun just doing all sorts of flips into the cloudy water. From the right angle, it looks as if they're making a leap for the sky...
