PICTURE THIS #264 ~ SUMMER

Wow, what a surprise! I had never expected to see one of my photos to be this week's banner...thank you, Mitch!


I could make myself free for a while and post my contributions for the theme chosen by Mitch! A nice one, indeed!


The words below are so true, aren't they?
SUMMER


Figs and peaches are typical fruits of the season
SUMMER

Summer without a chilled drink is not Summer
SUMMER


Going to the beach is almost a 'must'... catching crabs is common among children
SUMMER

  1. That little boat is exquisitely charming. I love it. Of your summer pictures, my favorite is the peaches and figs photograph. Lush with the flavors of summer.

  2. Hi Belita!! I didn't think you would have time to post an entry this week, as I thought you would be busy preparing for your vacation. Lovely shots for this week's theme. Interesting first shot. While improving data-protection laws is a good idea in principal, enforcing them is a whole other matter!! Love the shot of the figs and peaches, wonderful summer fruits, particularly when accompanied by the chilled drink in the third shot!! Very good 'catch' in the final shot.

    1. Hi Mitch! I'm well organized, contrarily to the majority of Latin people, and everything is ready. Today is time to relax...
      Thanks for your kind comments!

  3. Congrratulations on the banner picture, a very good shot of the little boat. An interesting selection of summer pictures.That is a good ad for the photos and so true. A very good snap of the figs and peaches showing a variety of colour and shape. I like how you caught the vapour on the glass, a very good study.A good angle on the kid with the crab.

  6. Fantastic banner shot for this week, Belita! Congrats! I love it!

    Data protection laws...I'll be looking forward to hearing how that comes out. Something to think about. I've been trying to find a watermark for my photos. Does anyone have a good idea? Thanks for sharing this one, Belita. Important to all of us.

    I love figs! What a beautiful shot. It makes me think of my granny who always had fig preserves and fresh biscuits on the table. Yum!

    The drink, pastry and flowers make a beautiful still life photo. Nice shot! You can feel the chill just looking at the glass!

    Sweet shot of the little boy with the crab in his shovel. Brave little guy!
