Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer

When we were younger we would have water fights or run through sprinklers to cool off.  Now, many communities have added water features to their playgrounds.  These are a hit with children who love running through (and away from) the sprinklers, which shoot up when least expected.

A wait for the water to shoot out of the hose is rewarded.

Family and friends gathering in someone’s backyard usually includes outdoor games and sleeping in a tent.

The Fall Fair (Eastern Nova Scotia Exhibition) signals the end of summer.  It gives farmers, 4-H members and local growers an opportunity to show off the results of their work over the summer.   The amusement rides are always a part of the Fall Fair.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

A few years ago, I started feeling like my grandson was growing up at an alarming rate and I thought how different his hands would look in a few years, so I started taking pictures of his hands doing everyday things.

I love the way small, plump, dimpled hands look when they are lifting the bowl to drink the last bit of milk out of a bowl of cereal.

Little hands are capable of so much.
