Thanks to our talented readers, our In Focus feature, which highlights reader photos each Sunday, has been going strong for more than a year. Over that time we've learned that moms and pets are very popular, and nostalgia reigns supreme. Keep sending those photos! Here are our upcoming topics. And if you have an idea for a topic, go ahead and send that, too:
Summer storms: We've seen your rainbow photos; now send your pictures from the perfect summer storm. Deadline: July 24.
Dog days of summer: Back by popular demand. How does your pooch beat the heat? Deadline: July 31.
Summer of splash: We're the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Show us how you have fun in the water. And yes, pools are allowed, too. Deadline: Aug. 7.
Garden of plenty: We want to see the best your garden has to offer, whether that's a larger-than-life zucchini or a bushel full of heirloom tomatoes. Deadline: Aug. 14.
Summer vacation: If you had the best summer vacation, go ahead and make us jealous. We'll take beautiful scenery, but there are bonus points for creativity. Deadline: Sept. 1.
