Back when he was still blogging, Steven of (sometimes)photoblog came up with "The Temperature Is...", which he described this way:
A photograph which represents the temperature. Hot, cold or in between. Hard shadows to show the bright sun for example. The soft shadows of a cool cloudy day. Ice and snow if you got it!
Julie of Julie Barrett's Journal had a similar theme in mind:
"Weather." Not just your average bit o' fluffy clouds here - try for something unusual or extreme. Obviously, it's okay to dip into the archives for this one. Mother Nature doesn't cooperate with deadlines.Got the idea? Basically, we're looking for anything to do with the weather. You can go for something subtle: colors of sky and qualities of light that we associate with hot or cool days. Or show us the most extreme weather your camera can find, or has ever found: blizzards, ice storms, hail, lightning storms, floods, serious fog, or the opposite: sandstorms, dust storms, or a day so hot that the air shimmers and mirages appear. Show us what you've got! Just remember our usual guidelines:
1. DO RSVP your full info in the comments below, including name, blog name and blog URL, thus:
I'm keeping a weather eye!WindyEveryone Knowshttp:/everyoneknowsitsme.blogspot.com
2. DO NOT post before the Challenge date, Saturday, August 14th. Most blog platforms let you write an entry in advance, and schedule it to post at the date and time you want.
3. DO mention Round Robin in your entry, including a link back to this blog. If you don't mention the Challenge, how can we tell you're even playing?
Carly and I have been raiding the topic pool of your suggestions for something like five years now, and haven't asked for fresh input for at least a year and a half. Many of our unused suggestions at this point are from people who no longer play, and in some cases from people who no longer blog at all! Obviously we're rather use YOUR fresh topic ideas, so please include three future topic suggestions in your entry. Who knows, we may be announcing your Challenge topic before the summer is out!
That's it for now. Go be photographers!
