Hey kids! If you wanted to submit photos for my upcoming project, today is the LAST DAY for your chance to win ETERNAL FAME AND GLORY (or at least, a virtual pat on the head)! Please e-mail your submission to thenakedredhead (at) gmail (dot) com by midnight EST tonight, May 3. Winners will not only receive publicity for their blog/flickr/whatnot, but they'll also get a free copy of their photo within the project. I've gotten some awesome entries so far...here are a few!
As a reminder, here's what I'm looking for:
1. Water from the Sky--A picture or photo that features a soft rain. It can be droplets in a lake, or a summer shower on a beach. Or, a picture of a cottage or a shack in the rain. You know...water from the sky. If you find a way to feature a woman or a couple, that'd rock.
2. The Rumble of the Gods--Any picture or photo that gives a feeling of thunder or an impending storm...an angry sky, clouds of grey over a forest (preferable), whatever says to you, "Holy shit, I better get inside!" A woman or couple again would be nice (but not necessary).
3. Flashes of Light--Lightning, lightning, lots of lightning. If you can compose something with lightning that also features a religious symbol (a cross, a Madonna, etc.) bonus points for you. Yup, you guessed it, a featured woman or couple would be great.
4. When the Downpour Ceases--Ideally, I'd like to see something where the viewer can tell that the storm JUST passed, maybe the bright sun coming out, a rainbow, a drying sidewalk. And again, a woman or couple would be cool.
Winners will be announced May 6!
And finally, here's a few hints about what I'm working on:
-It's a staple on the beach
-You can find it at garage sales OR at a fancy store
-It has the ability to make you laugh, roll your eyes and cry in the span of just a few minutes
-When I was younger, I had to hide mine under the bed.
Any guesses? :)
