Blog Monthly Contest Extended from February



I don't know about you guys, but February was a crazy busy month for me. So crazy indeed that I didn't have enough time to shoot an entry for my own blog's monthly assignment topic! Seems as if other photographers were in the same boat as well, as no entries were turned in last month for the topic.

Since I think the topic was a good one and the lack of entries wasn't because of a lack of interest in the topic itself, I think the best way to handle things is to just extend the topic through March. That way, my blog readers have TWO months instead of one to challenge themselves to shoot the topic chosen by January's photo assignment winner Amy Martin. Even Amy had to miss out on shooting for her own topic since she had shoulder surgery last month.

So here it is: March's assignment is: YOUTH AND MATURITY. I asked Amy to explain her topic so everyone would get a better idea of what to photography. Here's what she said:

"Sheba,
I was envisioning youth and maturity together. Example would be a mother and baby. I got the idea from a photo I purchased. It had a young green plant on the window sill of an old window with peeling paint. It looks like it was taken in a village in Italy. Another example would be a young kitten sleeping with an old dog. With there being an endless number of combinations of youth and maturity, I thought people could find something that interests them. Hope this helps."

You have from NOW until March 22 at midnight to turn in an entry. The photo must be taken during this time frame, as the goal of this assignment is to keep us all out shooting regularly and working on our conceptualization skills.

Please email entries to srwheelr@comcast.net

Entries should include EXIF data and be no larger than 800 on the longest side. Watermarks are optional to help protect your photo from unauthorized usage.
