Photo Series Idea(20 posts)

Photo Series IdeaScot_Gore
Apr 14, 2003 7:58 PM
Kristin's Wall Art post below gave me another idea. Would anyone be interested in a photo series group post. We pick a theme and a date. RBR posters take shots between now and then fitting to the theme and post them on the chosen date.

1) Shots must be applicable to the theme
2) Must have been taken on rides or other bike related events.

If interested post your ideas for a series and a post date. Other folks respond in and express interest in particapting in the photo series.

Just a thought.

But...most of us cannot take part in a theme regarding the Mississippi river. How about the theme be "rivers" in general???

Since I live within a couple of miles of the Ohio river on one side and the Licking River on the other, I would happily take part.
agreed...more--JS Haiku Shop

how about water and waterways? that's general enough that all of us can--in one way or another--contribute, provided a digital camera is handy.
I agreeFrith

Most of my rides are around water so I would be in for sure.
Agreed. It needs to be something everyone can shootKristin

You don't like my idea for a reflective kinda theme?

I'll start a post on Monday May 19th with a few shots. Othesr jump in a add your pics and words to the series.

We'll see how it works.

We'll either end up with a stunning mosiac of fine artistic expression, a jumble of chaotic images, or something in between.

Lets see how this grand experiment pans out.

be sure to post a reminder the week before! nmJS Haiku Shop

Question, does there have to be a bicycle in the shot?MB1

Since I use my bike for transportation while I am out taking photos all of my shots are cycling related.

All your shots qualify, IMHOScot_Gore

I think shots should be while on rides or other cycle related events (races, randos, swap meets, whatever). After all it's a bike site, the photography sites link is at the bottom of the page.

I was thinking this might be a fun community builder. Something we can all together, even if we're never (and never could be) all together.

I was also thinking if it caught on and people got into it we could try coordinated photo essays that one person could never pull off alone. As an example, when I posted "Mississippi" as a theme, it crossed my mind that you could do "Mississippi - Source to Delta". A poster could start with Lake Itasca (source) or New Orleans (delta), and others could post in with different images up (or down) stream from the start point until you had a complete photo essay (collage) of the river. Same kind of thing could be done with Great Lakes, Applachian Trail, Continental Divide, Civil War Battlefields, State Capital Buildings, rock formations,....whatever.

I'm the kind of bike rider that likes to ride to places, things, and landmarks. Being "assigned" things to ride to and bring back for a community contribution is appealing to me.

strongly suggested but not required, IMO nmJS Haiku Shop

Idea=Flatened flora and fauna aka. Roadkill. nmMB1
Apr 15, 2003 8:03 AM
LOL. NiceKristin
Apr 15, 2003 10:15 AM
Do you have any roadkill in your portfolio.
I've always avoided taking roadkill shots.MB1

I think it was Spirito who mentioned it once and gave me the idea.
thought about this on yesterday afternoon's rideJS Haiku Shop

as i passed about 9 flattened snakes. i think it's the season--are they breeding now? guess the warm tarmac makes a nice resting spot. this happens every year at about this time.
Be thankful its not geeseKristin

Dead snakes are easier to bunny hop.
saw a dead vulture on the roadside the other dayJS Haiku Shop
Apr 16, 2003 8:58 AM
but it hadn't been picked clean, and was obviously several days old. wonder if vultures aren't cannibalistic (?).
What date should I have my submission ready (nm)Scot_Gore
Apr 15, 2003 12:28 PM
And I think we should set a rule that the roadkill must already be deadKristin

RBR does not support animal abuse.
