Remembering Summer

Fairport Beach 7.jpg

With temperatures dropping into the single digits tonight and lake effect snow in the forecast, my mind turned to a warm summer day back in July.  I was at the Fairport Harbor Lake Metropark beach waiting to see some of the tall ships as they prepared for the day’s Parade of Sail.  I spent the entire day there, on the beach, shooting beach scenes while waiting for the occasional tall ship shot.

While wind sailors sailed and lifeguards watched, kept swimmers safe and interacted with sunbathers, the beach was active with muscle builders, football tossers, and others just enjoying a beautiful day at the beach.

It will be quite a few months now until we return to those warm beach days. Enjoy this view until then.

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
