Summer Nights

My family has something for evening visits to parks this summer, because we went back twice to two different parks, one of them that I featured on this blog in June.

Two weeks ago, after watching Ant-Man, my family decided on a whim to go visit a park on the edge of town named after a major catastrophe that occurred. I was listening to Broadway songs on my phone and finally, we had arrived.

The first time we went, the weather was quite nice, and, feeling a bit artsy that day, decided to play around with silhouette photography on my phone, as I had left my camera at home. The view was quite beautiful—we all stayed out until ten-thirty, devouring the Tex-Mex food that we bought and drinking in our Sprite like drinks.


 Sorry for the bad quality of the first two; these photos of me were taken on my phone by my brother.

The second time we went, which was yesterday, I had brought my camera—but the weather wasn’t as pretty. Still, my family ventured out to go out to the ocean after munching on popcorn from the showing of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, playing around with more photo tricks and trying to skip stones into the slowly rising tide (a skill which I am not a master at, currently).

My brother attempted to find smooth rocks for skipping! 


My family also went to a get together at a park, this time, taking place during the evening’s duration. I was able to wade in the water. My younger brother attracted a flock of geese near where the swimming parameters. Waddling around and trying to snap photos of birds is a difficult task. I must have looked like a dummy!

School begins for me next Wednesday, a fact that I am slightly dreading. My brains feel like they are still fried from last May’s finals. Finalizing my new design and preparing myself for an upcoming audition doesn’t help my case either. I've been getting out much more, watching movies and texting my friends like crazy (a reason why I haven't been able to reply to comments as much as I would like to) but it’s better to enjoy the last of these summer nights than dreading it!

  1. Great photos as always Morning! I watched Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation too; did you like it? Good luck again on your upcoming audition - and I'm sure you'll do very well in tenth grade (is it?) xx

    1. Hi, Sneha! To be honest I didn't know what to expect from Rogue Nation when I came in because beforehand I have never watched any of the other Mission Impossible movies. Also, I'm not sure if I can go to audition, not because I don't want to, but because my parents are deciding whether to miss the first shows of the season and I may have to stop by the hospital. I can't tell specifically if I'm going into the tenth grade, but as the director of the IMF in the movie said, "I can neither confirm nor deny any details of the operation without the secretary's approval." :P

  3. Oh, I love all of your photos! I love going to parks like that, it's so nice to have a little place away from all the noise of the city. And I hope that you have a good time at school! ♥

    1. Thank you, Amy! It's nice to get away from all of the noise. Even if all of the parks are surrounded by the city and are just small pocket getaways from the hustle and bustle, it's still nice. School starts next Wednesday and I'm super nervous...

    1. Thanks, Clara! I'm unsure whether I can audition or not for the first set of shows... But I am taking performance classes on the weekends (and I realized I'm procrastinating on my homework for that class; I need to make up a skit)! And also, MONOLOGUE. I have no idea what monologue I'm going to do. This just shows how unprepared I can be for auditions sometimes, but don't worry; this rarely ever happens.

  6. I love these sunset pictures! It would be awesome to live by an ocean. Always great pictures to take. I'm dreading school to. This sounds weird, but I know when I start school up I won't be as busy as now and I really really like busy. So yeah. I love this post!

    1. Thanks, Ellie! :) The ocean is so neat! But the only downside is that the ocean isn't that swimable; it's super cold and most people can't last more than five minutes in there (and tons of people get hypothermia, too). I kind of get what you mean on being busy in the summer than in the school year-- I've experienced some summers like those. You're fortunate to have time to do plenty of things- and it sounds like you're enjoying it, too! :)

    1. Thanks, Olivia! Honestly, I'm artsy, but at the most inappropriate times, sometimes, like art projects for school. What are you envious of, exactly? xD :P

  9. Summer nights have such a peaceful feel to them, which is definitely reflected in the photos. I'm looking forward to summer nights. Here it's still very cold, and spring seems such a long way away. Good luck with your audition. I know it's useless to say don't stress, because I always stress about things like that, but if you've done your preparation, then you're going to do your best anyway. I'm sure you're going to do well.

    1. Hi, Imogen! Summer nights do have a calm feeling, but living in the city, it's hard to get a taste of it unless you either go to the parks or if you go out of town for just a little bit. Oh, that's right, you live in Australia! Fall is around the corner for us here, so it's not a long wait; spring is just around the corner for you! And to be honest, I don't know if I'll be able to audition, not because I don't want to, but because of aspects that are way out of my hands. :) Thank you so much, though!

      xoxo Morning

    1. Thanks, Dani! I think the best way to capture some of the most beautiful things is to not actually look for them; sometimes the best things will pop up unexpectedly. :)

  14. Those pictures are so amazing! And I think photography runs in your family!

    I know you're SUPER busy at the moment, but if you have time, I'm looking for guest posters and interviewees for my blog! ;)

    BEST OF LUCK ON THE AUDITION!

    1. Hi, Lexie! Thanks so much! I don't know if photography runs well in my family a lot of the photos that my parents take are super blurry or they aren't straight XD They do their best! I actually commented on your post as soon as I saw you leaving a comment on here; I'll try to do an interview or a guest post, but because of everything on my schedule, I don't know if it will happen, but I am going to try. D THANK YOU!!!!

  15. I adore parks! It's so much fun to just enjoy nature and life as it is.

    1. Parks are just super fun! Except for phones and probably cameras, they're super tech free and the amount of stuff that you notice is just like, "WHOA!!!" Thank you for nominating me; though I don't do that many tags, I will be sure to check out the tag XDDD

  16. Amazing pictures! I'm going back on September 1st! I'm heading into my last year of primary school which I'm slightly dreading!

    Good luck in school! Its sounds like you've had a good time at that park - I'm a bit jealous actually! xoxo

    1. Good luck with your last year at primary! Enjoy it while you can, because after that things just get a teensy bit harder. ^.^ And thank you!

  17. Amazing pictures! Very beautiful! It looks like you had a great time. Yes, taking pictures of birds is very hard. I've been trying to take pictures of the birds at the bird feeder outside my house, and its incredibly difficult. They're startled easily and always fly away.

    As school, I'm sure that you'll be fine.
    I'm kind of nervous as well. I'm starting a new school this year, in sixth grade, and the orientation was yesterday. The school was very large, and I have no idea how to get anywhere!

    1. Thank you! I suggest when you're first trying to capture pictures of animals to try to sneak up as close as you can-- meaning get close to them, but let them know you're there. Then, if you feel as if you can't get any closer, use zoom. It's better to get closer to the subject rather than not walk and zoom in as much because it's better to take photos when they're up close.

      Also, I wish you luck in middle school! It may seem strange and first, but I know you'll get the hang of it and ease into it. Middle school carries lots of firsts too; enjoy it while you can, because middle school is paradise compared to high school.

      xoxo Morning

  18. What are you talking about, all your photos are amazing! I don't know much about photography, but my photos are definitely worse than yours. From reading your blog I know that you did so much fun things this summer and it's only natural that it went by so fast! Enjoy those last days before school! :) xxx

    1. Thank you do much, Katarina! If you want to improve your photography, it all comes down to practice. Read the manual, read any sources on how to make your photography better. I wasn't the greatest photographer when I started blogging, but I am sure you will improve, over time!

Hi there, reader! Thank you so, so much for having time to read my posts and comment; I really appreciate it, and I promise I will try to reply back! I'd also love it if you would follow my blog too and spread the word; that would make my day. :D Have a great day!

Stay strong and wonderful!
