Last Days of Summer
Stephen Shore, Merced River, Yosemite National Park, 1979
When I think of summer, this is the very first photograph that comes to mind. Perhaps it reminds me of camping along a river in Idaho. I can feel the temperature of the water, the sand in between my toes. This is the weather I long for most and a landscape that reminds me of that elusive place called "home."
Joel Penkman, Fabs
Thanks to Miss Hannah Barnes for the birthday present that screams, "Make me!" at the end of the summer and Joel Penkman for painting a version that lasts well into the winter.
Jennifer McClure, From the series Music from a Farther Room
I love everything about this photograph from Jennifer McClure.
Clay Lipsky, Kind of Blue
This image reminds me of driving around Tucson at night with the windows down listening to a Nogales, Mexico radio station.
