I’ve enjoyed this challenge so much.  Seeing the pictures that others have taken, makes me want to do better, aim differently, focus on one feature and just have fun.  I’ve also learned a lot from the various tips and suggestions that some of you have included with your photographs.  Thank you for teaching and encouraging me.

Now without further ado, here are some of my favorite pictures from the summer:

An abandoned building that holds memories of cousins playing…

Tranquil waters in the city park…
