Photo+Quote | July Blog Hop

“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.

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.

  2. You have really captured your kids' Summer perfectly! Wished we had been doing this all along in our family. I guess I need to do that with the remainder of it before school starts back. Great images, Deidre!

  5. Wonderful, as always. Our summer hasn't properly started here yet - the children finish school next week - but we have had a hot, dry spell so we've been enjoying some magical pool / barbeque moments too! I can't wait for the holidays and the luxury of time...
