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

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!

Hmmmm. Maybe I'll actually try. Although, it's never going to be summer here, apparently.

I am new to WW but would love to join!

Beautiful photos. That is some sky. Man oh man.

I love your meme. I might just have to get more into summer to participate. hehe

Happy WW from Sara @ the Mostly Wordless Wednesday H.Q.!

Nice shot!

Stan said...

Nice pictures. Must be fun flying in a glider, and no engine noise. I've seen them riding the thermals over the Sierra Nevada west of Reno.

Is the a bird in the second glider photo?

The project sounds like a fun idea. Thinking about what qualifies as a "summer image."

Marie Reed said...

Sounds like fun! Count me in:)

Really great feature, Robin - I'll be there.

Great shots!

Eaton Bennett said...

Clever look at the sky! And I think I can find some left over shots from our summer...would they be valid, or are they shots that have to be taken in the current summer. It aint summer here. :))

The new meme is a great idea!! I'd love to join but I'm already doing Weekly Winners, and I'd hate to loose some of the friends I've found there? But maybe I could include a SS Sunday picture just for you? I'll see what I can do, my friend!!
I absolutely LOVE that shot with the swallow and the plane, boy you must have been so fast with that camera, swallows are so hard to capture!!

I like the glider in the sky but I like that bright red mixer even more. What a neat and clean and organized kitchen!
