My husband’s favorite place on earth is his family’s summer home community on Long Island, NY. He has spent every summer of his life there on the beach. The community is open from April to November, as it closes down in the winter time.
Since moving to NY in 2009, I thought it would be a fun project to take pictures of the summer community during each season of the year. Then we could use them to make a picture wall in our new home. After much planning, we decided to use one specific location for the four photographs of each season.
We obviously knew the Fall and Winter photos would be easy to distinguish. So we ran into a little trouble with the Spring and Summer photos. I thought it would be a good idea to get John into the Summer photo as this is the season that people spend the most time in the community. So here is what we came up with for the seasonal photos…
We also threw in a few pictures of the beach to mix it up. These photos were taken at the beginning of May.
And here is the final product hanging on the wall in our living room!!
We are soo proud! It’s like our baby.. I mean when you think about it, it did take us over a year to accomplish this project. It was really fun though! and we get compliments everytime we have friends over.
What is your favorite place on earth?? Do you think this is something you could create for your own home??
