Misc Av Contest: It's Seasonal!

Ok, so this will be really simple. Seeing as this is an international board, we are in a constant seasonal flux. While someone is now experiencing Fall, someone is experiencing Spring. While someone will be experiencing Winter, others will be experiencing Summer. So, seasons are the theme.

So, here's what you need to do. Take a picture of something that shows off the current season in your neck of the woods. Then crop it or resize it for the standard avatar size. (ie 150x150).

As an example, here's what I'll be using. Took this about a month ago while hiking:

Excellent. I'll take a picture over the weekend. We've got some good foliage going on at the moment.

If that's what it's like, then go for it! I can just picture lots of people on a busy street with umbrellas.

Nice theme-idea...

I'll see if I can find a moment inbetween showers to go out there and take a snapshot of a puddle

Sure it would. It's all in how you would frame it.

Re: Misc Av Contest: It's Seasonal!

Okay, here we go. I went down to Moswetuset yesterday morning, but it was kind of bleak and most of the leaves had blown down. Also, there was a birder camouflaged among the rocks quacking away and I didn't want to disturb him. But I got a couple of decent shots and decided on this one:



The last leave of Autumn hangs on stubbornly with the bleak dawn and chilly ocean in the background.

This is Houston--no one walks anywhere. And I'm not going to go out in the rain to try to take a picture. I'll pass on this one, thanks.
