Send me your vacation pics


One of the best things about being a reporter for a community-centric publication is being able to get readers involved with the newspaper.

And I have another opportunity for you to do so.

As summer will be coming to a close soon, I thought it would be fun to learn what the Washington Park Profile and Life on Capitol Hill readers did this summer. I am imagining a full page of reader-submitted vacation photos for the September edition.

Now, when I say vacation, I don’t mean that it has to be a vacation in the traditional sense. Maybe your summer vacation was a day trip to the mountains for a hike or picnic, or the annual weekend trip to your favorite camping spot. Maybe you had out-of-state visitors and you got to be their tour guide around Denver. Or, maybe you went to one of Denver’s many cultural and/or arts institutions for the first time.

Perhaps you did travel this summer, so of course, if you have that perfect photo of an out-of-state or out-of-country destination, send it my way! Anything that encompasses summer fun counts.

I will start: My boyfriend and I celebrated our five-year dating anniversary in July. As much as we both enjoy spending a night out on the town in Denver, we decided to do an extended weekend getaway in Manitou Springs. We explored the Manitou Cliff Dwellings, visited the Miramont Castle Museum, played some games at the penny arcade and wandered around the downtown area (aka shopping).

For your summer photo to be published, all I need is a jpeg image emailed to me at Cell phone pictures should be uncropped and in color. Please include everybody’s first and last names — and the ages of any youth in the picture — and where and when the photo was taken. A one-or-two sentence description to accompany the photo would also be nice, but not necessary.

Deadline is Aug. 25.

I am looking forward to seeing all your photos!
