    Photo Assignment: Weekend 11/29/08 Thanksgiving Special II

    So it's been a while since we had a photo assignment, so I thought I'd bring back an old favorite. Since Tom presented it so well last year, I'll let him explain it once again:

    Thanksgiving is here and it's time for families to gather, and you know what happens when families gather. What we need are a few rules. With slight modifications, here they are:

    • Photos must be shot this Thanksgiving weekend: Thu, Fri, Sat, or Sun.
    • You must provide the EXIF information if asked (we'll help you, if you'd like to know how to get it).
    • No photoshop alteration (we're looking to improve your skills with your camera, not software).
    • Your photograph must adhere to the theme, which will be described below.
    • Post only one photo per post, so that commentary can be easily provided for that photo. You may post more than one photo, but try to keep it to a handful.
    • Title your photo. Do it.
    • Post your photos in this thread only. Do not start a thread in reply to this assignment. Please post your photos no later than next Wednesday.
    • And, the most important rule: have fun! We're looking to spread the joy that many of us derive from taking pictures, particularly ones that tell a story of some kind.



    This week's theme: "Gratitude"

    It's Thanksgiving. For what--or for whom--are you grateful? Tell us in a picture.

    In last week's theme there arose a discussion about the joys and challenges of photographing people, specifically portraits. So for this week's theme, I invite you to try your hand at a portrait. Now, you don't have to. If you're grateful for that new F800 and want to photograph it, by all means do. But aren't you grateful for your mom? Your brother? Your riding buddy? Give it a whirl if you'd like and teach us something in the process.

    Burnzilla directed us to a cool portrait site: http://www.365portraits.com/. Here you will find a multitude of inspiring examples.

    Here are a couple of others I quickly culled from a google search:

    Photonet

    Kodak

    Picture Correct

    So that's it. Bake your pies and clean your house today, because tomorrow you've got to take pictures.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

    Oh--BTW--I'm very grateful for these photo assignment threads.

    That'd be fun!

    One year later ... I gratefully volunteer.

    Let's do a test run even though it's already started (The Glaves compound was a dead give away anyway ) and I'll post for anyone who wants to add submissions anonymously.

    Gratitude

    Grateful for a good, old-fashined root beer stand (Ardy & Ed's) in warm, sunny Oshberg.

    Grateful for the probable final ride of the season (Thanksgiving Day.)

    Grateful for sharing this with other Beemer fanatics. (Not one Harley seen that day.)

    Looking forward to a nice ride and an ice-cold root beer, next year.

    Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to all!
