Sorry for the delay folks, I got a little busy with some doctor appointments and forgot to get this thread started. :oops: I'll have an example up shortly.

The theme for 687 is "Green". Can be of anything that includes or conveys the color green, let your imagination/ creativity run wild.

Standard CS rules apply.

Nice example and interesting theme. A color we don't see much here in the Winter (except for the freakishly warm weather we had for a few days - back to cold again).

Hi Paul! Thanks. I thought this would be a non-standard time of the year for a green theme, and maybe a bit of a challenge considering the lack of greenery for some folk. (And the reason it's pretty unrestricted.)

Found some green going through pockets of a seldom worn jacket.

Right on the money, Gordon! :). Actually, a water droplet with a little glycerin added..... Setup was that the subject (blank CD) was placed on a black dish and set on my dresser, which is under my bedroom windows. I sometimes use this location as a place to shoot because the windows bring in lots of natural light and sunshine. Camera was the A7R IV with 50mm f/2.8 macro lens on it, and I had the camera in spot metering. Sunshine poured in and hit that CD with a vengeance! I had a lot of fun playing with this, and -- oh, and a hint of things to come: those who are following my 52-Week project will soon be seeing another one of these images on Sunday when I share my week's work. :)
 
Thanks, Paul! I have to say that I am really, really enjoying photography again in a way that I hadn't for a long time, and playing with ideas that I'd used a long time ago but had forgotten about...... Projects like this are great for wintertime when one doesn't want to get outside and there is not a lot interesting to shoot even if one does venture out.....unless there's a big snowstorm or something, which we have not had this year. Snow and ice offer their own possibilities for interesting shots, but in their absence one needs to look elsewhere. A macro lens or two and seemingly ordinary subjects right in one's own home can be ideal for creating interesting images. Who says macro is just for flowers or bugs, anyway?! :)

A more environmentally "green" option.

Lots of people were turning back because they didn't have a cane ;)

It's been a sunnier and mild (knocking on wood, even though it'll likely change) Winter so far, but most of the green has been indoors...
