National Geographic Your Shot

Working Up the Courage | Photograph by Lauren Sanderson (@lauren___sanderson)
.
“Learning to swim is a delicate balance of holding on and letting go,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Lauren Sanderson. “Of wanting to, but not being quite sure, of working up the courage to believe that you can do it, while making sure that Mom is still watching.”

“The light, the fierce connection with us in her eyes, the layers of the pool and your framing all make for one intense moment we’re sharing with this new young swimmer. I love that your caption brings a little poetry to the courage it takes to learn how to swim, and how learning to swim isn’t just as simple as the physical motions. Beautifully done, Lauren!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

I don't know why, but those arm floaty things annoy me so much. How are you supposed to teach a kid to swim when they can't move their arms? I'd go for a life vest.
