It’s felt both like forever and just a few weeks, this summer of 2023. Kids are back in school, campgrounds are emptying out during the week, and I just saw my first golden leaf fall from a tree. So I guess I better share these summer photos before we slide into fall.
Some days are just so perfect that you just don’t want them to end. Today has been one of those days. I’m sitting outside under tall pine trees that shade me just right, watching the sunlight filtering through, and thinking how relaxing it was to paddle this morning with a long-time friend (34 years and counting, I think…) and take photos as we talked about whatever came to mind.
Before the last of Spring disappears, I’ll post some of my favorite images that didn’t quite find a home in previous posts. All of them have two things in common: all of them were taken in the South and all of them are minus the usual color palette because I liked them better this way.
I went for a hike in the woods the other day, before all the smoke from the Quebec fires showed up. I didn’t know it would be my last hike of the week, thanks to the air quality issues for the next several days. So I’m glad I took the time to notice the small things…
I’ve had these three images sitting in a folder on my desktop, just waiting to be used somewhere but they never quite fit into a post. So I’m giving them their own spotlight. Not many words to read today, just images to enjoy for a few minutes.
