Summer In Film
photography & words by Juliette Steen
“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.
