In 1958, before I knew about the classic, wonderful bluesy “Summertime” from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, “Summertime, Summertime“ was the title of a bouncy one-hit wonder that I liked a lot back in the day. I’ve been using that word, instead of just ordinary Summer, ever since. And I often sing the song (usually just to myself.)
But, making a slideshow of summer pictures when you live in San Diego ain’t so simple. So many images that say “summer” in other places just say “ho-hum” in “Sun Diego.” Sunshine? Got it. Water? Well, yeah. Lazy summer days? All year ‘round.
Summertime is really important in those more northern, truly temperate-zone climates, however. And our images of summertimes past are formed by where we spent them.
I hope these photos arouse feelings of summertime in you.
The next “A Photographic Look At …” will be some European street scenes.
