As I stated in posts through the month, it rained in May. Then it rained much more in June. For most of May, I photographed wet things under the softbox of an overcast sky. For most of June, I photographed whenever I could. These images are all from various trips during June. Some of them are from other posts from during the month.

During one rainy weekend in June, I dropped my son off to orientation at the Rutgers Honors College and then roamed the grounds of the Rutgers Gardens until he was ready. It rained the entire time.

One other weekend during a break in the rain, I took my family to Asbury Park, New Jersey. We strolled the boardwalk and went home just as it started to rain.

After walking the boardwalk Bhavna and I stopped in at the Asbuary Park Bierhalle for a pint and pretzel. We had just finished paying the check when it started to rain again.

The Montgomery Township Independence Day Fireworks at are held each year at the Montgomery High School. It’s a big deal for the town drawing a few thousand people. My kids have always enjoyed playing on the lawn with their friends and then returning to sit with us right before the fireworks display starts.
