Assignment 23: Winter

When I was planning the assignments for this year back in November, I hesitated to include this Assignment on Winter.  Last year, my area barely had a winter with unseasonably warm temperatures and lack of snow.  However, there is more to winter than just cold and snow, right?  Sports, hobbies, entertainment, outdoor events, indoor events, celebrations and other things happen this time of year.

Your assignment is to show me what winter means to you in any way you wish.  A single photo, photo essay or a series of posts.  Be creative and have fun!

Assignment 23: Winter

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, Google+ or other photo sharing site, personal website or any place on the Internet where you can place a link to it here by making a comment to this blog entry. Then, we can all visit those sites and enjoy everyone’s Winter photos.

Please, have your photos posted on or before Midnight (your time zone), Wednesday, January 23, 2013.  Might be a good time to start up a blog or join a photo community like flickr.  As I have done for all the Assignments, I will put together a recap with my comments.

If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I will be happy to answer them. I would triply appreciate it if you would help spread the word about this assignment so we can get lots of people to participate. Blog it, Tweet it, FaceBook it, Google+ it, Pin it, Tag it, email it and talk about it to your fellow photographers, bloggers, friends, strangers in the night and family. Thank you!

    Good start of the year!
    This assignment is the first good thing about the bad weather forecast for Denmark, which is; frost and winter the next two months. I´ll look more friendly at the frozen puddles the upcoming week.

    Like Birgitte writes – we have lots of winter: ice-cold temperatures and frost and snow (again) here in Denmark. So I take my down jacket and warm gloves and hat on – and pull the camera out in the cold the coming days …….

  23. What a great way to get the creative juices flowing. Winter can be hard, it is a nice excuse to think about it in a more positive light. With the shortened days why not take advantage of the cover of night and do a little self reflection? Cheers. http://asurrenderedyear.wordpress.com/2013/01/23/winter-time-to-think/
