TWiP: Simple Summer Pleasures

This Week in Pictures (TWiP) at Polka Dot Cottage

Writing up these TWiP posts for the past year has helped me see more clearly that I have a definite photography style. I like the human element. That is a fact that really jumps out at me, when I look at a group of twelve pictures and see my own body in fully half of them!

I’ve been enjoying summer this week. I’m thinking about seeing if we can find some local fireworks tonight and keep up the Summery feelings.

Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans 🙂

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for my Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2015), plus some everyday-life snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…

Saturday

365: 2015 178/365 – It’s finished! www.lisaclarke.net/downloads/sewing-patterns/fancypants/

Sunday

365: 2015 179/365 – Took some crazy adorable pictures of my niece, but I’m saving those for her parents to share. Instead, you get this one which is just plain normal adorable.

Monday

365: 2015 182/365 – The water was 78 degrees today. It took me a while to get all the way in…

Thursday

365: 2015 183/365 – I wasn’t so sure about this pattern when I started, but I think I’m going to like my Lady Kina when it’s finished.

Friday

365: 2015 184/365 – Sometimes I wish I liked beer, because when I’m hanging out in the back yard on a summer evening, listening to music and waiting for the grill to heat up, I kind of get the urge to crack one open. But I really don’t like beer at all. I made do with some Dr. Pepper (a drink I have all but given up in recent years) and that was an enjoyable treat. The hot dogs and chicken I grilled weren’t half bad either.

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Flickr.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!

  1. Love your kina..great color. Looks like you had a full week.

    1. I love the color, too. I found this yarn in my stash – totally forgot I had it! If you look closely, it’s got about a million shades of green and yellow in it.

  2. Looks like summer is in full swing! Enjoy!!

    1. Thanks! I hope it passes nice and slowly 🙂
