The longest day of the year inspires many things … photography, mass yoga gatherings, 5k races, dances, and parties. My friends held a Solstice Party, a wonderful celebration of summer, family, and friends.
We enjoyed great food and drink in a beautiful outdoor setting. Children played, adults laughed, and everyone danced, waving sparklers and glow sticks around with abandon. All this and a lovely garden tour, too.
I wish I could say that I had taken photos to capture all those moments, but it’s hard to dance and shoot pics at the same time.
Hopefully, you’ll enjoy these, taken earlier in the evening.
While most of the photos from the Solstice Party on Friday were taken outside, this one was shot while I was inside getting a glass of sangria. Something about the light on the keys and the lovely wood …
I was supposed to hit the lake with friends this evening, but threatening rain early in the day led to a reschedule. The sun was shining brightly as I headed toward home after work, and it was still shining during a brief but beautiful rain shower.
I only had moments to get the camera out and push the shutter . The rain was slowing down and I was – after all – stopped in the middle of the road.
