Weekly Photo Challenge: Hot

What can be more hot than Summer. It can mean a lot for different people. To me, it brings into mind fun under the Sun, going to the beach, having a great time at the pool, discovering the outdoors, vacations with family and finding yourself. It also means feeling hot from the scorching Summer heat , more time to enjoy daylight and higher energy bills from the almost constant use of the air conditioner. Those bills are too hot it burns your pocket.

For the past 2 days, me and my son were trying to cool down some of those hotness at the pool and my iPhone‘s camera captured images which I thought were hot. Hope you like them. Have a great Summer!

    I can sense the sultry and the cool in these photos. I love the third photograph-the orange slide, the orange and green ‘flying saucers’, such great colors. Something feels ominous. Empty life guard chair, too. Nice photographs, and from an iPhone!

    • Thanks for the visit. I was amazed of the effects too. I was just clicking the camera on I thought were nice subjects but the Sun was so bright and hot that when I stare at the screen my vision turns kind of dark and blurry. I’m glad my son kept telling me, ” take pictures, take pictures, dad!”

    • Thanks. The pool experience is just perfect to cool down the Summer heat. So, get that sunscreen and dive! The east coast thus have a lot of great beaches. The Istanbul pics are incredible!

    Your son is going to have so many gorgeous photos to enjoy looking through when he is older. So much fun in the sun. The third one is straight out of Hollywood! You are so clever.

    • Thanks. I was fortunate to use the ” burst” feature. It captures every second. But I did have one very cooperative subject. My son enjoys the slide , he did it about 10 times, more than enough to atleast one great photo. god bless you and your family.

    • I love my phone. I really don’t use much the other features except the camera. I bought a $1.99 Camera plus apps. Best thing I ever bought. May be black berry has a counter part of it. thanks

    • Thank you. I have classmates in England and they do often wear clothes meant for winter in my side of the world. I hope the post will bring you some Sunshine. Yes, the colors were vivid. I didn’t see it that way when I was under the direct sunlight. Everything just looks bright and I was squinting my eyes. kudos to the camera. Have a wonderful Summer .

    I used to go to a swimming pool, but I would rather have fun swimming against the waves at the beach. It’s just better that way. My siblings don’t even like going to the pool. The water is just chlorine water, and there’s nothing really great about that.

    My pictures would never look as good as that. I would have to use a regular cell phone. What’s the resolution of your camera? Your pictures are between 900*607 and 900*406 pixels and I just wonder if you just zoomed it in to make them that way? My cell phone can capture images in 1080 pixels when I zoom it out, I think.

    • Thanks. I just went to Galveston beach with my son this Sunday. What a crowd. still fun though. Pardon my ignorance with the pixels, I bought a $1.99 camera plus application on my iPhone. A friend told me about it. Now I’m sharing it with you. Best one I bought!

    • Okay. Make sure to take lots of Sunblock. it is still hot out there. One of the things I love about Summer is to be able to enjoy any form of water and the pool is on the top of my list. Have a fun day with your family or by simply drifting away on that cool , red Hammock!
