Childhood Summers

This summer gone was my first exposure to the return of the slip-n-slide. It had well and truly disappeared for a decade, at least in Victoria, with years of drought and water restrictions.

This Summer though, I found myself at a 6th birthday party on another 39 degree day and, as in the days of my youth, the adults decided their was nothing left to do to sooth the over-cooked, sugar-highed kids other than to strip them down and turn on the hose.

These are quite possibly my favourite photos of 2012.
