summer evening magic
Summer rituals: after-dinner strolls to the neighborhood park, splashing in the fountain, a backyard family jamboree, ICE CREAM, tree climbing, sun coming through the windows long after bedtime... these are the things that we hope are burned in our children's memories. They are what give summertime that extra spark of magic. And it is these beautiful bits of the everyday that I love to capture; they are the ordinary-yet-extraordinary moments that I strive to see, record, and savor. And this here evening in August, in the home/yard/park of Archer B. and his adoring fan club, was just the right mixture of familiar and exceptional. Summertime magic in every sense of the word folks.
