Blog Guelph: sidewalk

Back to School!

sidewalk Originally uploaded by kim/ber

There is something about this time of year that brings back so many of memories, the new clothes, the potential of untarnished school supplies, and the return of shoes to summer feet. Back to school on the prairies had its own particular smell, no doubt related to bringing the crops in, which still brings about a strange mix of emotions. These shots remind me of my own back to school experiences, the longer light, the late nights lost to early morning risings, the seeming endless walk to July, and the crush of people after an otherwise sparse summer. I hope you have had all a wonderful First Day Back, in whatever capacity you experienced it, even it was only for Home Time.
