I wasn’t even sure I was going to do a photo hunt for August, when WHAM, inspiration struck. I know it isn’t August yet, but this post needed to be written while the inspiration was with me, and I started thinking that a little heads up on this one could probably be helpful.
Let me back up and explain my inspiration. I was over at Dawn’s blog this morning and I read this post. She referred to Point Pelee in Canada as “the end of the earth.” I immediately thought of the area that I have always thought of as “the end of the earth” – Provincetown, Massachuesetts. It is the very tip of Cape Cod sticking out into the Atlantic Ocean. That got me thinking about geography and whether there is a place that other people consider “the end of the earth” and wouldn’t that be a cool thing for a photo hunt?
Sure it would, but that might not make it easy for a lot of folks to participate in a photo hunt – and that of course is what I like best about photo hunts, having lots of participation. So how could I tweak this “end of the earth” idea to fit a photo hunt?
Here’s what I’ve come up with. Show me the place that is “the end of the earth” for you OR show me some of the “extremes” of your city, town, area, state, province or favorite vacation spot. Take a photo at the highest spot, the lowest spot, the northernmost, southernmost, westernmost or easternmost point. If you can think of another “extreme” that I haven’t included here, please share it in the comments. You choose how many photos you would like to share.
Because of the nature of this assignment and the fact that you may have already traveled to somewhere that you’d like to feature for your photo hunt, please feel free to use archived photos for your post. Assignment due date will be the very end of August, Friday the 31st. As usual, leave me the link to your post in the comments of this post. I should be able to get the round up posted over Labor Day weekend.
I’d love to have lots of participation in this assignment, so if you’d do me the favor of helping to spread the word I’d be very appreciative!
