Summer Days


Summer photography – when it comes to enjoying summer, for many folks it’s probably splashing around the pool or afternoon visits to the spray park, hanging out on the beach or playing outside, summer vacations, the kids off from school, having a few iced cold beverages on the patio or loading up the RV for a road trip, but for me? Not so much these days. Okay, the road trip and RV part are right up my alley, but since my long-distance travels are on hold, it doesn’t count at this point. So, what’s an autumn loving woman to do?

When I think of summer, after I moan about the humidity and heat, three things come to mind that make me glad to head out with my camera:

I also think about the upcoming season, but I’ll save those autumn dreams and posts when it’s 35C and I’m begging for those cooler days and nights.

I’m just glad the period stemming from hostile dust-bunny takeover on this blog is over.  Now it’s time to dig through archives, post some images and make a few more. Or, not. 

81 days until the autumnal equinox is upon us …


See you in the field!
