Summer from 1-51, according to my phone

Too many moments without my camera in hand made for a summer captured haphazardly on the phone. Blurry, poorly-lit, and at times downright awful, these photos remind me of one of the best summers of my life.

Here they are, fifty-one un-edited mostly! happy memories as captured by my cell phone.
