Summertime Photography

So in theory we are in the middle of summer, well actually to most school kids summer is just about to start but we are in the middle of the year and by now we should be sun drenched but in the UK it is more like October. So cold, so wet and windy as a very windy place…. These fantastic pictures found on The Atlantic website are a reminder of what summer used to mean. There are about 30 odd pictures in total and certainly a good way to cheer you up is to have a look at the site here

Four-year-old Solaris Arias (right) jumps through water spraying from an open fire hydrant in Providence, Rhode Island, on June 20, 2012. Much of the state remained under a heat advisory Tuesday afternoon because of the steamy air mass that has moved into the region resulting in temperatures in the 90s. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)
