Source: Week 2: Winter
For those of you playing along at home here is Week 2 of our 52 week photography project.
Who’s who in the story…
I have joined with 6 photographers, of varying experience, to take a photo every week for a year, one theme at a time. It’s turned into a bit of a family affair actually with my sister, my brother-in-law, my nephew, my husband, my daughter and a close friend of my sister’s. You can read more about us all here in the About page.
Each week for 52 weeks…
Each week we are given a new theme and must take a photo, add some words and submit it to Tim, who will compile a post at 52 Weeks Photography Group, before letting us know our next theme…and so on for 52 weeks!
This is the first time I’ve been involved in this project but some of the others are on their second time round. At the end of the previous project they produced a beautiful coffee table book with all the photos and words included from their weekly submissions. It’s a magnificent record of a year in photos.
Week 2 theme – Winter
The theme for Week 2 was Winter which resulted in another great selection of photos. As we are all mainly in the Southern Hemisphere, we had a range of interpretations but surprisingly a lot of blue sky. My daughter in the UK made the comment that the summer temperatures she is experiencing are actually colder than some of our winter temps!
This is my photo for Week 2 and my words: Raindrops keep falling….no snow, or frost photos, just rain drops and blue skies. I was thinking of how to capture the mercurial changes of winter weather and on my way up the driveway this was the scene that presented itself to me – raindrops and blue sky! I captured the view out of the car’s windscreen, with my iPhone, and that was it, done.
Our Week 1 – Self Portrait photos can be found in the link at the start of my post. My summary post for the first week can be found here – Week 1: Self Portrait
I’m now thinking of how to interpret the next theme of Transport.
It’s great to be involved in such a creative challenge with a small supportive group. I’d love to hear your thoughts on our various takes on either of these themes. Be sure to click on the link to check out the full post on the blog 52 Weeks Photography Group.
