Those Summer Days...

By Ayelet_A
Hello everyone!
Thank you all for the kind Shana Tova wishes and once again for not calling the authorities regarding my insane work Tongue Greatly appreciated!

University is getting closer and closer and so is my big move to my new apartment... Many more items to buy and build, cupboards to wash and forms to sign - exciting really but very time consuming and the one and half hour drive each way doesn't do much to help Wink
I'm therefore apologizing again for my lack of comments and delay in catching up.
Luckily it's the weekend and I've managed to take over the computer for an hour or so, so ready or not here I come! Grin

Regarding the image - leaving the psychotic apples aside, this is my wonderful, cutest and perfect little niece Reut. Being her aunt I'm very objective Wink
This image takes me back to the great summer we've had this year in Israel (still have some sun left overs, but not as much), and to warm you all in cold England here is a bit of sand, beach and sun followed by the feet of my little sunshine Grin

Childhood as we all want to remember it! Love the balance with the blurred little toes on the left.

Oh yes, sand in everything!!
Great times with little ones. Nothing like the feel of it under foot and between your toes. Problem is you are washing it out of everything when you get home for weeks............I could go on!!!
Lovely capture- brings back memories of our summer holiday this August with our young grandson.
Oh and all the best for Uni. Its a mad house here tonight as Richard packs up to go back tomorrow- just a short time here between ironing and folding his clothes.................for the last time until Christmas.

Lovely shot Ayelet; so well observed with this simple view having a whole story to tell.
Sounds like exciting plans getting ready for Uni and must be very soon now. I distinctly remember the 7 of us in our new flat gathering for the first time in the kitchen with no-one knowing what to say, until one guy broke the ice with an awful joke - 24 years later and it's his daughters who I now regularly upload portraits of on ephotozine Smile
