Earlier, on Joanne’s January entry to Cardinal Guzman’s monthly photo challenge, I commented that “I would like to join in, but then I’d be on the hook and I must confess, I find myself resisting commitments these days. So, I’ll just satisfy myself with your entries.”
Changing Seasons is a lot more informal than you might think it is. The Cardinal posts around the 20th of the month and everyone else posts sometime before the end of the month. It can be a single photo, or a gallery, a recipe, artwork, whatever the month means to you.
Even for a commitment-phobe, it would be fun.
OK, Joanne! I’m in!
Now, don’t expect anything earth-shattering in terms of brilliant photography. I’m strictly a point-and-shoot kinda gal, one who doesn’t have the patience, nor the capacity, I’m afraid, to understand the art and science of photography.
I’ve tried. I’ve enrolled in and promptly dropped any number of courses. I’ve purchased “how-to” books and they’ve gone un-opened to the second-hand shops. I have a blind spot, as it were, when it comes to learning shutter speeds and depth of field and ISO. The “Auto” setting is my default mode.
What I do want to share, though, is my appreciation for theme and variation, especially those to be found in nature in the changing seasons and the changing light. This will be my first full year here in my new Northern Ontario community. I want to record my surroundings as the year unfolds.
Thanks for hosting the series, Max, and thanks everyone, for reading!
