Through the tarp

This peekaboo look at the sky through two contrasting tarps really appeals to me. Sort of like a sneaky little window to the sky.

And now for an important announcement:

*drumroll please*

I'm delighted to announce the upcoming launch of

Each Sunday, beginning 31 May, Around the Island will be hosting a brand new summer photo project and you're invited!
.
Share your barbecues, your beaches, your cannonballing kids, that island sunset, an old pair of flip flops, anything that says summer to you.
.
We'll be playing each week all summer long - the linkie will go up each Saturday night at midnight Israel time (5pm EST) so keep those cameras handy and start grabbing those quintessential summer shots.
.
See you on the 31st for
Summer Stock Sunday!

It appeals to me too. I'm excited about your Summer Stock. I'll keep my camera at the ready to capture our summer fun.

I find it hugely interesting! In fact if you hadn't given it away, I'd have sat here for literally minutes trying to figure out what it was. But then my attention span would have expired.

Guess it's time to start revving up for the summer. I usually hibernate in reverse, but if you're gonna have a summer long photo challenge... well, you know I can't resist that.

I still say you should keep it going all year. How many times have we heard "Oh I really, really needed some summer in the middle of the winter."

I love the tarp shot. The wavy lines are elegant.

Your summer meme sounds like fun, too.

The inside of your tent?
Mazel tov on creating this new meme. I'll definitely keep it in mind.

Love that shot thru the tarps ... a true blogger makes posts from all the day to day fodder .. just like this!

I cant wait to participate in Summer Stock Sunday!

Robin said...

Not a tent exactly - a tarp, a covering (like a big sheet) that's strung up to provide shade :).

Stan said...

Robin, you have a good eye. I like photos that look at things in unusual ways.

Allison Says said...

Great shot! It is fascinating. That is something I would never think to take a picture of.

Summer Stock Sunday sounds like a great idea!

Jientje said...

It fascinates me. Great shot!

Love your shot, Robin! Tarp hasn't exactly meant those tarps around here in the States for a while. Ha! Looking forward to your new meme! :)

Anissa said...

I love acoustic rock! I can't wait I only play one thing on Sundays -- I love sharing photos. TFS

I host Recipe swap on Mondays and Kids Corner on Saturdays.

What a unique photo! Definitely a photographer's eye...

Very cool design.

Hey, Robin - I'm having an art show over at my place. Hope to see you there!

Lew said...

Unusual window! Crisp and clean photo with even light inside and through the window. Tents have a long history in your part of the world.

kathleen dale said...

Very different and neat.

Robin said...

How exciting! I got a new camera BACKPACK thing for my camera (nikon d60) so I'm in...but er....we don't have beaches...or water...or trees....dang...

Shey said...

Nice! Would love to join! Got to get out more with my camera. :)
