“Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” – Henry James
Each month a group of photography friends and I interpret a famous quote through images we have captured. I believe the beauty in James’ beloved phrase, summer afternoon, relies on the luxury of time. This month I sought to capture moments that basked in summer’s wealth of time.
Time to splash and freak your mom out with your fearlessness in water. Time to read and enjoy an apple during a break at the pool.
Time to draw and use up all the printer paper your heart desires.
Time to run in sprinklers.
Time for epic brotherly races on the Wii.
Time for one more baseball game.
And time to celebrate the end of baseball with the best cool treat of summer.

Photo+Quote is a monthly series that I’m using to dig deeper into my own archives. On the 15th of every month we are challenged to pair a chosen quote with photographs.You can see how the other photographers in the series interpreted this month’s quote by following the blog hop to Brad Jolly of Mephis, Tennessee.
