Monthly Photo Challenge

Postby Gravity Defier » Fri Jan 07, 2011 1:00 am

Anyone feel like being creative once a month for the next calendar year? All you'll need is a camera and a little time to spare. I'll throw out a relatively open-ended prompt, you make the picture happen with as much or as little creativity as you wish. No swiping from Google Images or similar online image searches. Original images only. Post your final product. Piece of cake, right?


December

Capture something related to winter.



November

Capture something food related.


October

Capture something fall related.

September

Capture your handwriting.


August

(In honor of 90s on Nick) Capture something that reminds you of your childhood or something that is from your childhood.

July

Capture the "Things [you] Carry."

June

Capture something that is related to reading.


May

Capture, if you can find it where you are, something spring related.


April

April showers...Capture something water related.

March

Capture something Jeebsy* inspired.

February

Capture something that you do every.single.day. Happy Groundhog Day month!


January

Capture your favorite color.




*Irish!

In a desperate bid to be first, I have taken this poor picture of my poor Plant, who is green.

I have a really hard time picking a favorite ANYTHING, so I have somewhat of a hard time saying that pink is my favorite color. Since I was living with 3 boys before Kinley was born, pink kind of became my label, since I was the only girl, so pink it is. (It's not like I DISLIKE pink, I actually like it a lot! I just used to favor red and blue, but now it's pink. I LOVE sprinkles, though!)

I will try to find my favourite colour in nature soon, but first I just wanted to say: Nomi, I'm totally jealous of your grey coat!

Can I be totally lame and choose rainbow?

No? Okay, my actual favourite colour is blue, specifically the diaper in the second row on the far left.

I love arranging my cloth diapers in rainbow order, though. ROYGBIV makes me smile.

Will, what's in your picture? It's lovely but I can't tell what it is. The lower left-hand corner reminds me of The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister.

well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

The picture was worth the effort! It makes me sad there's no 10,000 Villages around here. Oxfam is awesome, but it's not the same and I would love to be able to decorate the room with 10,000 Villages stuff.

I do love shades of green. Sadly, I did not quite capture the shade of green that I saw at that moment. It had been a sort of glowing green that occasionally happens near dusk which is just gorgeous. Alas, it looks just like a normal lawn green right now.

This is one double counts. I really like this color green, and while I don't actually play with bacteria every single day, some weeks it feels like I do.

(while I'm on a picture-taking spree)

I put my coat on EVERY DAY. Without a doubt. At least once.

Image

When summer is at last over and the first day that can be somewhat classified as cold comes up, I feel at one with myself. Because I can wear my coat without dying.

I walk. Not the way most people do, as a necessary function of mobility, but I do more than I strictly need to, for the pleasure of it.




I love, love the color in your picture, Shannon. Purple is my favorite color but lime green would be in the top three, if not next in line. The way it pops, next to that red, is pretty spectacular.

Kim, you and Fiona are adorable, naturally. Very cute picture.


Jan, I just may forgive you for taking the markers (or was it crayons?) from Ginny when she started marking the walls, now that I know you color with her every day. I suppose I can't call you an art Nazi who is killing her creativity anymore...:P (<-- means I didn't really think you were an art Nazi, simply remembered something from FB about her coloring on the walls). Also, your baby is freaking cute.



Yay, Nomi! Pweb gets the first picture from your new phone. :D How is it, by the way? New phones scare the crap out of me, which is why I have my RAZR still. Which was already ancient when I got it.


As for Boss-man's picture, it reminded me of myself in high school, when it'd start to warm up and I perhaps wore my jacket a little too long because it was hard for me to adjust to being without it again. I guess I also wore it because I was super fat and thought it was hiding me or otherwise camouflaging just how fat I was, but I never claimed to have any sort of common sense. Right.

I think Jan should be disqualified for cheating. Not because she submitted two pictures for February, but because of what was in those pictures.

Also, I need to figure out a way to transfer pictures from my blue tooth-challenged phone to my computer so I can participate in this awesomeness.

Alea, sorry I forgot to respond to your question. I like my phone a lot, although I'm still finding out all the things it can do. My biggest concern was the battery life but so far it seems to last two whole days, so I'm happy with that.

I'm sorry I'm late on January's challenge! I never seemed to have a camera with me when conditions were ideal.

I love the colour of a clear sky and that particular glow you get just before sundown.

Such lovely pictures! I love that before sundown glow as well. A blogger I read posts pictures / art work of that time frame and calls it "The Golden Hour". I like that name!

And what do I do everyday?
