Even though time is something Mankind created, each calendar month seems to have a certain feel to it. It’s reflected in nature and the events placed in the calendar.
I live in the northern hemisphere and in an area which gets four distinct seasons. November to me is a transition month between the colorful autumn and festivals of October and the winter and holidays of December. The days grow shorter, darker and colder yet some days are bright and warm. Nature has prepared with most trees now bare of leaves and a hard frost has stopped growth. Here in the United States, people celebrate Thanksgiving with family and prepare to go shopping on Black Friday.
November is our final assignment for 2009. Show me what November means to you. You can create new photos or use something from your archives on this assignment.
As in the other assignments, do not send me your photos. What I would like you to do is post them on your blog, flickr or other photo sharing site, personal website or any other place on the Internet where you can place a link to it here by making a comment to this blog entry. Then we can visit those sites and learn what we all think of the month of November.
Please, have your photos posted by Wednesday, November 18, 2009. Don’t have a place to post? Might be a good time to start up a blog or join a photo community like flickr or Exposure. As I did for Assignments 1, 2 and 3, I’ll put together a recap with my comments.
If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I will be happy to answer them. By the way, I would really appreciate it if you would help spread the word about this so we can get lots of people to participate. Thanks!
