What new adventures did you have?
List the changes you noticed in the abilities of your kids at the pool
Write down the funny things you overheard in the car
Record the family stories you learned of at the reunion
Remember to remember the sunburns, bug bites, and poison ivy
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie -
True Poems flee.
Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.
There's never enough time to do all the nothin' you want.
~Calvin, from Calvin & Hobbes
The summer treats:
Summer Photo Tips
Try turning on your flash in the harsh sun if your subject's face is shadowy
Turn up your ISO as the sun goes down to compensate for fading light
If the sun is bright and your subject is squinting, have them close their eyes until you are ready to shoot and then have the open just before you take the photo
The dreaded self-portrait can take a new and fun twist if you take a photo of your long shadow
