That Sad Little Twinge

Recently photographed the Cook/Sunkel family last week on the Hood Canal.  As the sun started to set I noticed one of their little girls wrapped in a towel with a very familiar look on her face.  It is about this time in August when you occasionally get that whiff of fall and realize summer is on its way out.  No matter how old I get, that feeling of anticipating a new school year never leaves me, and even though I look forward to my favorite season, I always experience that little twinge of sadness as summer comes to a close.   Amid the background noise of happy shouts, final splashes in the water, and the pop of the fire, I couldn’t help but recognize that blank stare and my own thoughts of “What haven’t I done? What have I done?  Where has it gone?”
