Images and Words week 83: Weather (or not)
Greetings from Amy and welcome to week 83 of Images and Words! In honor of the season finale of Storm Chasers coinciding with my first ever Snow Day I have chosen the theme of "Weather (or not)". Here is my entry:
Having lived almost my entire life in Sunny California, snow is still very new and special to me. I'm very intrigued by "The Blue Hour", that hour of twilight in which everything looks blue and snow seems to glow. I took this photo last New Year's Eve right outside our restaurant, the foot path on the Boise River Greenbelt normally gets plowed but we had this late afternoon-early evening snow that didn't get plowed, in fact it didn't even get stepped on! As I was photographing I made a point to stay off the path so I could get this shot of the pristine snow. I used this Images and Words in an advertisement this week for our restaurant, and I'm also thinking about making it into note card gift sets for Christmas presents--that way our friends and family who live here in the Boise area can send out Thank You Cards and Thinking of You Notes featuring the beautiful area in which they/we live.
I would love to see photos of severe and/or dramatic weather, but really almost any photo would depict weather in some way: any photo of the outdoors, even seasonal clothing indoors, and I'm sure you could make the argument that in-season produce or even a bottle of wine expresses weather.
BTW, if you watch Storm Chasers, Sean Casey's film "Tornado Alley" comes out on March 18, 2011 and he suggests that we contact our local IMAX theatre to let them know we want the film!
Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.
Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words.
Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .
Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.
All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.
New topics will be posted on Sundays.
Posts can be made through Saturday.
One post per person only please.
