Although the official start of summer is still a few weeks over yonder, let’s just agree that Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial kickoff of sunny season. We fire up the grills, add a new pool noodle to the collection, and put root beer floats back on our menus. To celebrate, this week’s Photo of the Day theme is summer fun.

This week’s theme

For this week’s Photo of the Day challenge, we want to see your best summer photos. Film, digital, instant, B&W, color, sepia, and more are all welcome, as long as they convey the joy, warmth, adventure, and fun that evokes the season. Show us surfers on the beach, ice cream melting on a floatie poolside, your barbecues, baseball games, county fairs, afternoons by the lake, reading in the garden, travel, and concerts. Whatever summer means to you is what we want to see. We can’t wait to see your best shots!
