I love the summer.

I love the sunshine, I love long evenings full of golden light, I love campfires, I love food cooked & eaten outside, I love adventures to old and new places, I love dappled light through the tress, I love marshmallows melting on your fingers, I love the smell of rain on the warm earth, I love the greens of nature… and more.

Our summer so far has been sprinkled with all these loves. Adventuring near and far, capturing little snippets of these delights with my lens and compiled together into a film, so they don’t gather dust on the hard drive…. and instead tell the story of our summer so far…

Focus on the good, look for the light. That’s what I’m concentrating on. Life isn’t all sunshine and marshmallows everyday – we just moved house and I’m totally exhausted, but concentrating on the good brings more good, and I’m all for that.

Thankfully, our summer continues… with more adventures to come & films, photos and stories to tell of them. But sometimes you have to use what you’ve gathered so far and play with it. I encourage people taking my Time Capsule courses, that completing a project is best way to learn what works and encourages you to make more. The summer round of Creating Time Capsules – A JOURNEY is producing some wonderful films, packed with memories and stories of their summers. It makes me so happy!

Thanks for being a wonderful summer so far… can’t wait to see what the forthcoming weeks bring!

All photos and the film captured on Canon EOS 5D mIII :: the next round of Creating Time Capsules will be in September.
