Wikipedia tells us that August 16 is the 228th day of the year (229th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 137 days remaining until the end of the year.

Aren’t you glad to know that?

Here’s our latest selection of Saturday Scenes:

You can take part, too! Simply take a photograph on Saturday and tag it on twitter with #satscene – or simply let @akasylvia know that you took a photo! It’s fun to see what everyone else is doing on a Saturday.

Popquiz: What noted figure of the American Old West was killed in a saloon in Deadwood, South Dakota, on August 2, 1876?

Thankfully, there are no murders in this instalment of Saturday Scenes – everyone looks like they are having lots of fun in the summer sun. Or summer rain if you happen to live on the English coast. Sorry, colinbrooks ;)

Send a nice tweet to this weeks contributors:

It’s easy to take part. Simply snap a photograph on a Saturday and then tweet it with #satscene or just let me (akasylvia) know it is there! The following Saturday, your photograph will appear here!

We need even numbers, it looks so much neater. ;)
