Welcome to Week 15 of our 52 week photography project where the theme was Spring for us and for our Northern Hemisphere participant – Autumn.
My special photo shows some of the beautiful spring blossoms on a tree in our garden. The soft colour of them had me entranced as I looked up through the canopy and I remembered the various colours of spring green I’ve noticed in new growth in Europe and Scandinavia in the past. An evocative colour that I found out is aptly named Spring Green.
This is also the first photo in this series that I’ve used an actual camera, which is why I mentioned it was special. I want to know if there’s much difference between my iPhone photos and photos taken with a real camera. I know in many respects there’s huge amount of differences but in regards to using photos in my blog, I wondered if it is worth the extra hassle. So as my husband has recently updated his camera, I get to play with his old one and I must say I’m quite happy with the results so far. Can you notice any improvement? I am trying to improve my skills and take this project seriously.
My accompanying words: Did you know there’s an actual colour called Spring green? It’s a combination of cyan, the colour of water, and green, the colour of plants. I love the softer green colours of spring with new growth bursting forth – this tree in our garden is a perfect example of new growth and spring colour. I’m so thankful to live in an area with four distinct seasons, and spring is a definite favourite.
This week’s photos were some of our best yet in my humble opinion – Alison featured Beth in the garden as Beth Zen; Daniel’s photo was a gorgeous shot of jacaranda flowers; Grant captured a magpie ready to spring; Melanie shared a photo of a scary pumpkins embracing their imperfections; Sharon got into the spring racing mood with the colourful flower covered horses on Melbourne streets; and Tim captured the colours, shapes, textures and smells of spring in a simply beautiful shot.
Go and have a look for yourself and let me know what you think 🙂 Here’s the link again: SpringAutumn
What’s the story behind the 52 week photography project I hear you ask?
You can read all about it here: 52 week photography project – but basically I have joined with 6 photographers, of varying experience, to take a photo every week for a year, one theme at a time. That’s 52 weeks of photos!
I’ve been assured it’s all about creativity, not necessarily photographic expertise – I’m keen to improve my skills.
I like to do a wrap-up post each week linking back to the 52 Week project blog’s page to share the fantastic talent of the group. My posts have a page of their own now here on my blog, so I can keep track of them easily: 52 weeks photography project
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 any of these themes. Be sure to click on the link to check out the full post over on the blog 52 Weeks Photography Group.
Happy photographing! Let me know what you think of our photos this week. As always I appreciate your thoughts, especially if you have any feedback on my first ever camera entry for this project.
Enjoy the week ahead!
