High dive

How breathtaking is this framed triptych photograph of U.S. diver Patricia McCormick doing a springboard high dive at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics? (She won the gold.) Can you imagine this hanging in a home? Beautiful.

Very cool. Tryptichs are kind of allover the place now and I really want to make one. A little tweaking on a favorite photo and a good photo store should do the trick without paying hundreds for it.

Hi Joanna,
I am booking a trip to amsterdam this summer, can I ask how you flew there? What airline, and was it direct? Your seats look so comfy in the picture! I am finding a major difference in price between economy and business class.
Thanks,
Patricia

um, i mostly love the swimsuit! a nice vintage change from the high-legged speedo one-pieces they've got going on these days. those suits always look like they're pulling on their...vajayjays...uncomfortably!

And the great things bout triptych photographs is that you can hang them slightly misaligned, which I think makes the whole thing look even cooler.

really breathtaking!

Black and white sport photography holds a special place in my heart. This is beautifully genius. I'd hang it up in a heart beat.

It kinda makes me think of a nautilus shell.

It does seem like a nautical shell! So graceful.

That's so rad! I'll have to show my dad this. He actually competed in the '52 Olympics for track, but for India, not the U.S. But I wonder if he saw this or not. : ) So cool!

It reminds me of my ballet classes, but up in the air, upside down! So beautiful ♥

Anne said...

I think it's a nice image. But I'd prefer it as a single image rather than a triptych. And as AVY said, not so tightly cropped.

Beautiful! I have a black and white picture of my son playing in the sand on the beach that I would love to give this treatment to. Thanks for the idea!

Miss Rubio said...

I LOVE THIS!!!!! What a great idea. Xo

Emily said...

It's sort of strange and beautiful at the same time. She looks like a nautilus. Very striking.

Mani said...

This is just beautiful! Diving is really such a graceful sport

Jocy said...

That's beautiful. It also makes me insanely jealous - how graceful.

kimpletelychic said...

Very cool photo! I did gymnastics for 12 years and dove in college. This photo brings back many great memories of a graceful, but hard sport.

Lindsay said...

This is beautiful! I was on the dive team for a year in high school - such a great sport!

Jesse said...

so inspiring!

The Office Stylist said...

Amazing! Love the split effect of the image!

Lisamarie said...

The picture is beautiful! FYI: my good friend Courtney Matthewson is on this year's Olympic waterpolo team! Hooray!

This would look great above the bath !

Katie O'Keefe said...

This would be perfect in a beach home. What a beautiful shot, thanks for sharing!
