One Community is a monthly photo project in which participants photograph their lives and communities with a theme in mind. The theme varies by month. The goal is to both showcase similarities and differences in our communities worldwide – and bring us all closer together in understanding through art. Kara chose the inspiration words this month: road or trip, float, sprinkler, oasis.
Road trip. A 14-hour (round trip) road trip over a four-day weekend with a 4 year old and a 10 month old may not sound like too much fun, but with enough snacks, some good music for the radio-challenged areas of Southern Illinois and Indiana, and an iPad loaded up with games and movies, it was totally worth it to get this picture. (Congrats, honey!)
Float. I don’t know what you think about when you hear this word, but I haven’t been to Andy’s Custard for a while, and my mind went immediately to a root beer float! Not the most photogenic thing, I realize in retrospect, but it makes up for its lack of looks with extra deliciousness. #summerbucketlist (I realize it’s absurd to use a hashtag here, but I kind of love absurdity. Expect to see this photo again when I post about our summer plans in a few days!)
Sprinkler. Oops, I accidentally had this one in my mind as “splash” when I planned to try to capture a shot of my sweet boys playing in the bathtub. I’m pretty sure they’ll be wrestling as soon as Sam is mobile.
Oasis. Isn’t this pond pretty? This has been the turn-around point for our evening walk/training wheels bike ride now that the weather has consistently been warm. We don’t usually call it an oasis though, it’s usually, “Can we walk to the ducks, Mom?” We stop in the shade and watch the ducks, geese, and swans fish for their dinner, before turning around and heading for home.
Link-up! Post one or more photos interpreting the words for the month, and add your blog post to the link-up at the bottom of this post. Please include a link back to the link-up post on your One Community post, and take a look at some of the other links and comment on them. After all, this is all about building community!
What’s your favorite way to enjoy the longer days of summer?
