Ah, summer. For many, the chance to throw on a bathing suit and jump into Michigan’s lakes. For others, the opportunity to travel the world and dip into our ever-dwindling bank accounts. For the Michigan Daily photo-staff, summer is the time to experience the world through the lens. Nine photographers, thousands of photos, and countless life-changing experiences from Salamanca, to New Zealand, to here in Eastern Michigan. Below are just a few choice snaps from our summers — we are never letting go of Summer ‘15.
