It's summertime and the living is perhaps not easy, but it's important to find the moments of joy nonetheless.

Sarah Stacke shows us how she's used photography to keep her young son (and herself!) creatively engaged during the pandemic with a fun portrait series in the Washington Post.
Chris Facey shot a beautiful series on jump ropers for the Cut that will make you want to go outside and play, and is a departure from the more bleak news about oil spills off the coast of Mauritius and the aftermath of the explosion in Beirut.
