April’s Assignment Gallery – Going Green!

It is becoming apparent that these monthly assignments inspire you to go out and shoot with them in mind. Each time we post a new one, we are always curious about what you will do with it, and are always pleased when our expectations get shattered by your efforts!

So, how did you do with the challenge of “Going Green!?” Well, we’d say pretty darn well! Extraordinarily as a matter of fact. Green is truly the color of nature and is naturally attractive to the eye. As such, it’s easy to overlook as a focus when it’s constantly in your environment, but for those of us in winter climates, the absence of green can become apparent, and extremely in focus upon its return in the spring. A very welcome change of season.

This collection of green created by you – our wandering, photography-practicing readers – contains images created in backyards and in some cases, from locales on the other side of the globe. From abstract to macro to portraits to sporting events to wind energy and beyond, green lives in all of these images. As one person put it, “I now see green everywhere!” Awesome! That was the whole idea…to encourage you to see. Our hope is that you keep on seeing, keep on shooting and keep on contributing to our assignments. Enjoy all the various shades and ideas of green, and we hope its simple abundance surrounds you in all of your days!

Kudos to the brave souls who submitted images for the very first time. It’s usually a huge first step for anyone to show the world their particular vision of it. See? Wasn’t so scary, now was it? As the year keeps rolling along, we’ll keep on giving you homework…on a monthly basis. How about taking another step…or leap in this direction? Here’s your next assignment for May.
