Woo-hoo, summer! Summer is swimming in the sea and sandcastles on the beach and running through sprinklers on the front lawn and backyard barbecues and Fourth of July fireworks and roller coaster rides and road trips to new places.... and lots and lots of photos.
Like me, I'm sure you'll be snapping away at every second in an attempt to capture those summer memories. Half the time I'll end up with blurred photos of kids with half-closed eyes, but sometimes everything comes together in one perfect shot that captures the perfect summer moment. That's the shot I'll post on Facebook to show everyone what a wonderful summer we had -- and that's the shot that Shutterfly wants to see on their Long Live Summer Photo Contest! Shutterfly launched it yesterday, and you can win a prize just for entering! You can win weekly prizes by submitting a photo that captures the weekly theme, and you could even win the grand prize of a trip to the Bahamas.
