I recently deleted a lot of junk pictures off of my iPhone, and I still have almost 700 files left. Most of which are also junk. The rest of which are instagram shots of food, cocktails, my kids, and my kids eating food. What I learned by participating in this meme: I need to diversify my photography.
My theme for today’s #iPPP link is Summer. Our break officially ended yesterday – or I guess Monday was the last day, if we’re going to be technical – so I’m sharing two of my Summer 2011 memories.
I regularly took pictures of thermometers this summer and did two things with them:
- Texted or emailed them to friends who live in kinder climates, just so they could feel extra thankful for their good fortune to live somewhere with pleasant weather; and
- Sent them to my husband, along with charming messages like, “Get me the hell out of this town!” or “I just spontaneously combusted!” or “Stupid, stupid, stupid heat is making me mad.” He really likes those messages. It’s nice to hear uplifting things from your wife. Like daily affirmations.
Today’s second Summer 2011 memory is of us escaping the brutal, mind-altering, cranky-making heat.
Have a good Wednesday, everyone. If you need me, I’ll be lying on a tile floor under a ceiling fan, melting ice cubes on my forehead.
