Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments and special memories. They were truly filled with the very best of summer. My own list includes:

* Watching the kids catch fireflies in their p.j.'s
* Sandcastles
* The smell of warm strawberries in the field
* Backyard barbecues
* Swimming at the lake

Congratulations to Steph Johnson and
PaperdayStudio/Katie Stephenson.
A mini-print set will soon be on it's way to each of you!

Have a fabulous, summer filled weekend!

congratulations to the winners! (sad for me)
what kind of camera was this picture shot with? it looks like a pinhole/zone plate to me...

Hi Anna-
This was with the original lensbaby. They have various other versions now.

Wonder is an emotion comparable to surprise that people feel when perceiving something rare or unexpected.

I love your photography. I'm new to the blog thing and use a small Canon digital camera. Do you have a suggestion for a better camera for photos? Thanks!
