to me,
summer is

sitting by the open window
wearing jeans and a men's shirt
endless days
random chats with neighbours and passers-by
watching life go by on my pavement-terrace
discovering new music
melon and rosé
feeling alive

(this is a corner view, for more of those, head on over to jane's)

p.s.: would you tell me what you're listening to these days? i think i really need a summer mix-tape.

to me summer is sitting in the garden with friends, barbecues with the family and enjoying the rare sun of the UK whilst it lasts!

P.S I have the strangest tastes in music, but I quite like the eclectic band Plan B

I discovered you via Flohstiche and found another corner of this beautiful world.
Great summer pictures and words.

My favorite music right now I have to admit are those songs for the soccer world cup, although I'm not a soccer fan. There are those happy making easy listening songs they play in the radio all the time and there is Africa and TV shows a lot about African living and music right now.

I love your summer shots in black and white!! I'm thinking that I need to shoot in b&w more often.

Summer music? I've been really hooked on Trio Garufa - awesome tango music!! Every evening while driving home in my car I'm enjoying happy tango music. I found them on iTunes. :>)

Happy Corner Viewing ~
