July Wrap-Up

Between triple digit temperatures and no rain, this summer has been a hot, crispy one here Somewhere-in-the-Middle-of-the-USA.  I love taking photos outside and found it difficult to get out as often in the extreme heat this month.  Fortunately I got to spend a few days in both Toronto and Dallas (where it was surprisingly cooler than here) this month.

The extreme drought is causing many of the leaves to shrivel up and fall off of the trees prematurely.  I worry that I’ll be robbed of a proper autumn and the chance to photograph the changing leaves reflecting in the lake or lining the streets.  Since I don’t have the ability to make it rain, I guess I’ll just worry about that if and when it happens.  Or, I could plan a short day trip up north and capture the bridges of Madison County during the fall…

Here are some of my favorite pics from July (click each thumbnail to see the original post).

What about you?  Do you have a favorite below?

    • Thanks, Loony! It IS an architectural marvel after all!

      Every time I see that pic I have to laugh at myself since I was so busy trying to capture something 90degrees to the left of it and had my back to that shot for a while before I saw it. Good grief!

    • Thanks! Of course I’m partial to my girls, although I don’t really tend do take many “portrait” pics.

    • Thanks so much, Rommel! What will I do when it’s fall and winter and they aren’t there to pose for me? 🙂

      • Ahihihi…. Fall scenery is always good though and snow beautifies surrounding as well.

      • Then hopefully this winter we’ll have snow! (Last winter we didn’t have more than a dusting of snow which was a first ever for this part of the country.)

  4. All great of course, but my favorite is definitely no 3, the portrait of one of your daughters. (well, the last one of your other daughter is just wonderful too). 🙂
