Pools, water parks, beaches, rivers, lakes: Summer is the season to live by the water. It’s the stuff of childhood memories—family vacations, seafood feasts, and bright pool noodles floating under the hot estival sun. This week’s theme invites you to dive in and share your favorite water photos.

This week’s theme

For this Photo of the Day challenge, show us your very best shots of the wet stuff. Film, digital, instant—B&W, color, sepia, and more are all welcome, as well as all interpretations of the theme. Will you photograph the droplets on a full glass of ice water as the sun shines through, or the waves that crash to shore? Does it take the form of a child running through the sprinklers? Synchronized swimmers? An underwater snap of your snorkeling adventure? Get creative!

How to enter
