Summer In Film

photography & words by Juliette Steen 

essay/

 

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” 


― John Steinbeck

 

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”  — F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

If summer is for beginnings, winter is for hibernating: for nourishing and keeping warm the body and the senses; to prepare for the dawn of spring.

With summer at its end, we look back on our summer adventures and welcome the winter with fresh memories – salty skin, clear Blue Mountains, laughter with old friends, the tired-happy feeling after a day of exploring. 

As we stay warm and enjoy winter's retreat, we can take the summer past with us  — at least until the new summer comes and we begin to thaw.
