    The equinox is upon us (or at least upon those of you in eastern Asia or Australia), so the [thread=42933]Spring/Fall Shooting Spree[/thread] is officially ON.

    For anyone who cares to join in, the rules are pretty simple:
    1. Share a single image (of ANY subject) taken each day from March 20 to May 27th (Memorial Day in the US). If you miss a day its not big deal. The idea is to get folks out and taking pictures not to play lunchroom monitor.
    2. As this is a :43: forum I expect most folks will be sharing images created with :43: cameras but that is not a hard and fast requirement -- think of it more as a suggestion. If you happen to sneak the occasional iPhone, NEX, X100 or N800 image in there I doubt the earth will stop spinning on its axis. Images may be straight out of camera JPEGs or manipulated to your heart's content. Pushing yourself past your normal comfort levels is encouraged.
    3. Most importantly: HAVE FUN!
    Let the games begin!

    Thanks for breaking the seal on this endeavor, Budajoe! Lovely image.

    One thing I want to make clarify is that while this is labeled as a "Spring/Fall" initiative, images do NOT need to be constrained to references to the seasons. Anything goes in terms of content.

    :wink: I'm actually based in California, so it's the first day of Spring today and the birds are singing!

    But I have a bunch of fall photos from 2012, so why not mix it up I say!

    Hope more people post photos...come on everyone, get to posting!

    Cheers,
    B

    Here's the best of what I've captured so far today. Not a particularly inspired image, but it does capture the first day of Spring in Seattle:

    In case I don't get a chance to post tomorrow here's another one from the same series that I processed tonight, with a totally different look and feel for the approach.

    Weak start!

    This is going to be difficult.

    The first thought that ran through my head on seeing this was Homer Simpson's Mr. Plow jingle.

    Yeah, it's a lot harder than you think to make one decent image every day.

    I took three quick shots on the walk from my office to the car. I didn't touch them until after 8:30 when everything else was done for the day, and I had to force myself then. This is a good exercise.

    I've been documenting the progress of our church building over the last 12 months. Here's what it looked like today. Nothing terribly special about the photo, but the building is very special to us!

    Nice use of diagonal lines! Those railings look like xylophones to me.
