    Default July 2009 Photography Assignment - Heat

    July is almost here...anyone have any suggestions on a theme?
    thx - Marko

    Well, once I saw here a snake from MA (stuffed animal - the snake, not MA ). That inspired me some weeks ago to take shots from my friends self made teddy bears.
    I guess everyone here (even the men ;-)) will have one. How about "showing our stuffed friends"? Just a little crazy guess .

    Since it is summer perhaps buskers, street vendors or entertainers, outdoor festivals, outdoor concerts or pancake breakfasts (Stampede starts next week).

    We could do a colour, maybe yellow? Just a suggestion...

    How about Heat?

    I'll vote for the music or summer concert theme.

    How do you photograph heat?
    That's part of the challenge.....Interesting!

    I like this suggestion - any other Ideas?

    On July 1, the idea with the most support wins.

    I got this idea from another photo forum and kinda liked it- Out of Focus. Shots that are out of focus but still work somehow.

    Or, if we'd rather have something more summery- what about water?

    Heat sounds interesting to me. I'd like to see some first though. It's been raining/foggy since Thursday and the forecast has rain/fog/cloud through to Sunday.

    Heat or hot, and for our down under crowd just remember you don't know cold

    I like the idea of heat.
    If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen.

    (I vote heat)

    Default The Heat of Fire

    I'll go first. Fireworks, I find, are a little tricky but HOT and I think this one turned out OK and it was taken on July 1st so I think this at least puts me in the right category.

    I think the trick is to wait until near the end of the month so the post doesn't get forgotten, but I'll jump in early nonetheless.

    This sparrow was a masochist and stayed in the summer heat although he was heavy panting as you can see

    I think that this one suggest heat very well, if you can imagine the pain that I felt, next nights
    My wife insisted to use sunscreen, but I refused, I'm a man, I can resist to any sun
