Summer Scenes: Bennett Campbell

Cooling off in Troy.

AOA is taking it easy this week, enjoying a lot of the great stuff Capital Region summers have to offer. (Yes, ice cream will be involved.) While we're away, a few local photographers will be sharing how they see summer in the Capital Region.

Today's photos are from Bennett Campbell. We're always interested in the world as he sees it -- whether it's local events, the Adirondacks or abandoned buildings. One of Bennett's photos was recently named an honorable mention at the 33rd Photo Regional at the Albany Center Gallery.

Here are a few scenes from his summer adventures in the Capital Region.

Fun! Yup, they make me want to get up some more mountains and hold some more frosty beverages! Nice inspiring collection. I love summer.
I'd love to see AOA do this for winter too. I think we could use some appreciation for that beautiful time of year, as well. :)

My favorites are the ones with the chairs in the woods, the row boat and the fireworks at the campsite - they definitely embody summer!

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
