Picture This #366 ~ Summer Fun

Wonderful banner by Belita. Art at its finest is art for everyone to enjoy every day.

On to summer. Here in Michigan it is still high summer with temperatures 90ºF/32ºC. Some old pictures and some new.

Grilled ribs
Grilled ribs at an outdoor fair. Sausage too.

Sturgeon Moon
The other night I went out to capture the Sturgeon Moon. It was misty and the creatures of the summer night were singing to me.

Bait bucket
Lots of people like to fish in the summer. So do birds.

Milkweed in the afternoon sun.


  1. Interesting photos. I can smell the smoke from the b-b-que from here. Lovely moon photo and a good shot of the moment with the bird looking for his fish. The last photo is really impressive. I do not know what milkweed is, but we probably have it here under another name.

  2. Hi benni wow love that milk weed shot that is stupendus
    your other summer fun are fun love summer still hot here also

  3. Hi Benni! Thanks for your kind words... Nice rustic grill equipment, very different from what we see at fairs in Portugal.... love the shot of the sturgeon moon and that of the bird, as well... My favourite? The bottom shot... beautiful silky white-filament hairs...

  4. Delish!

    Beautiful golden moon in the velvet darkness of night

  5. Hi Benni !! Fabulous shots for this week's theme. That first shot is making me feel hungry. I love the smell of BBQ smoke and grilling meat!! I also love the old wagon the grill is sitting in. Beautiful shot of the moon, the tree silhouettes, the natural sepia and the halo all make for a great shot. Your third shot I've seen before, but it always makes me smile. The Egret is wondering if this is some new form of packed lunch!! LOL. Lovely capture of the sunlight shining on the milkweed seeds. All wonderful takes on the summer theme!!!
