Blog Project Week 29: Clean
Interestingly enough, I realized when I pulled this word how differently I would approach photographing it depending on what time of the year it was. In the Fall I might use an outdoor landscape to represent the sensation of clean, crisp fresh air as the leaves fall and the cooler temperatures of the Northeast start to creep in. In the winter I might photograph a blanket of freshly fallen snow to show the clean purity of untouched snowflakes. In the Spring it would probably be something in the house sparking to represent spring cleaning. But it's summer!
Summer is about spending time outside, taking in some sun (through sun block of course), playing in the water and taking summer vacations. Growing up in Ringwood with family down the shore, summer was about long days at the lake or going to the beach while visiting family. The end of the day though? That was about caked on layers of sun block, sand, lake/beach water, and sweat. That was gross just to list. So that means it time to get squeaky clean!
After coming back from the lake with the kids I watch a couple days a week, I grabbed this picture of their toes in the bubbles on the driveway during what can most accurately be described as a de-lousing process. Hose spray down in the driveway to remove the layer of sand that "somehow" stayed on after they rinsed the sand off at the lake before going into the house for their showers.
All in one shot I got what summer means to me, cleaning up after a long day playing outside -- which could also be doubling as a driveway car wash!
