This was an easy challenge, considering I live in Virginia Beach, a pretty hopping place in the summer. Memorial Day weekend seems to start it all. This first picture is what Virginia Beach’s Oceanfront looks like all summer:
This next photograph was taken by my father in the mid fifties. It’s grainy, but it’s one of my favorites and makes me think back to those times every summer when we’d drive from Connecticut to Ohio to visit my grandparents. Going to the swimming pool with my cousins was an activity I relished. I am the little girl sharing my ice cream with my youngest cousin. My brother is next to me.
This weekend we took a long walk on the Boardwalk at the Oceanfront and my brother tried out his new camera. Using his amazing telephoto lens, he was able to capture two great pictures:
And, finally, the best reminder of summer is this picture taken when my brother accidentally clicked the shutter while he was adjusting the lens. At least, that’s what he told my sister-in-law. Thanks, Brother, for providing me with the best shot for this week’s photo challenge!
