Photo Challenges:
August 2010


What does summertime mean to you? Is it playing Frisbee with the dog, building sand castles at the beach, picnics, or car rides with the top down? Do you think of blazing heat, blue skies, and cornfields? Is summer a time to spend at the cottage with your family, swimming in the lake, fishing, and roasting marshmallows on the camp fire? Does it mean eating ice cream, soaking up the air-conditioning at the mall, and wearing flip flops? Turn one of these activities into an iconic image that captures the mood of summer. The most important thing is for you to make your image personal, and photograph a subject that represents summertime for you.
