summers end


It is an understatement to say that summer flew by right before my eyes. The cool water of the swimming pool on countless humid days, wearing the casual shorts and tank tops, eating juicy watermelon slices with friends; there's so much I'm going to miss. As my senior year starts, I'm flooded with anxiousness and excitement, anticipating college but ready to wrap up highschool once and for all.

While my academic break is long lost, the warm air outside reminds me that summer is lingering for a bit. It is never too late to savor every moment the trees stay green, knowing that soon the leaves will crisp and fall. Cool, sweet lemonade beverages will soon be replaced with hot apple cider in the season to come. As much as I'm wistful to see summer end, I welcome fall with all the wonder it never fails to bring.

Lately, I've felt that my inspiration for blogging has been lacking. Sometimes finding something to write about becomes a task for me instead of a pleasure. The best remedy to this, I've found, is to walk outside with my camera and start shooting. Capturing even the simplest things gives me motivation to keep moving on, it shows me there's always something.

I'm always up for trying new things. Upside down pictures, for example, an idea Carlotta shared a while back. I'm embarrassed to admit that while taking this I got rather light-headed and had to stop. Ha!
To conclude this post, thought I would share several more from the shoot this morning. It was honestly the best little brother alliance ever, S did an amazing job. You can view the one I chose to enter here.




Happy Tuesday to you! Any big plans for the week?
