“Summer was on the way; Jem and I awaited it with impatience. Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the tree house; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape; but most of all, summer was Dill.” ~ Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
Summer, one of four seasons, traditionally the second, marked by the longest and typically hottest days of the year due to the inclination of the Earth and thermal lag.
Summertime, Atlanta Photography Group’s exhibition, aims to feature photographs depicting your views of Summer, be they real or imagined, conceptual or concrete, somewhere or anywhere, in between.
