I took this photo last week during the water aerobics class at the East Lake YMCA. The class consists of about 20 elderly women ranging in age from 60 to 92. YMCA volunteer “Mr. Ted,” 76, leads the class through water exercises including jogging, simulated kickboxing, jumping rope and stretching out the body. Watching the class is a beautiful experience as the women move about in the water to Ted’s endless chant-like mantras: "Squat down, push up, squat down, push up, down up, down up." All the women in the class wore swim caps. The rich color of this cap attracted me to this image.
