Thematic Photographic's theme this past week was 'Welcome Summer'.
Maybe I'm the only TP participant who lives in the southern hemisphere, where it is, at the moment, anything but summery. Reading the joyful posts of all those people who are enjoying the warmth of summer, lapping up beaches and holidays, I didn't really feel that I had anything to contribute.
I did however love looking at all the beautiful and interesting photos they posted to herald the season; if you'd like to see them, go here.
What made me decide to put a late post up, just so that I could say I hadn't missed Theme # 201, was marking my students' assignments on The Truman Show; my Year 11 class (16 yr-olds) and I have just finished our study of this excellent movie. Many of them chose to write about the concept of control and the abuse of power in the film, and one of the quotes that was often discussed was when Christof decides they'll never find Truman in the dark, and demands: "Cue the sun".
My thoughts exactly.
I'm looking forward to when our sun is cued, and is accompanied by
some lovely warmth, instead of heavy frosts.
Have a spectacular weekend, everyone!
